6. New craft brewery alert: Wake opens Saturday in Rock Island


Wake Brewing, a new micro-brewery at 2529 5th Ave., Rock Island, is set to open at noon on Saturday. Jason Parris, seen here, owns it with his brother Justen Parris.

After spending two decades playing in rock bands and touring the country, brothers Jason and Justen Parris both needed a new creative outlet.

They chose making beer from home.

When they started it 10 years ago, Jason Parris, the older brother by three years, liked that homebrewing involved a potion-esque process, “It was like magic. You could just add these certain things and you create beer.”

Wake Brewing, the micro-brewery on 5th Avenue in Rock Island that opens Saturday, is both an extension and result of their hobby. The brothers are the sole co-owners and brewers. Read more.
