Tap Room / Beer Garden

Friday, 6/26/20 update:
The inside is now open. We moved some tables to ensure social distancing, but still have plenty of seating inside. Come on out! A mask is still required when not seated at your table.

Things will be different, so please bear with us as we’re adjusting to this new situation. To keep everyone safe, we’ve implemented a few new rules and summarized them in a funny video. Even Nugget, the cat, got to help.

For a live view of the beergarden and to see how busy we are, click here.

Here are the rules:
  • A mask needs to be worn when you’re not seated at your table.
  • Please keep 6 ft. distance when in line, picking up your beer, or waiting for the bathrooms.
  • A maximum of 10 people per table are allowed, kids included.
  • All tables need to remain at least 6 ft. apart. You are not allowed to move the tables, or bring your own lawn furniture.
  • Indoors is now open. Tables have been moved to ensure adequate social distancing. Bar seating will NOT be available.
  • Please keep your kids at your table. The playground remains closed as social distancing would be impossible with multiple families on our small playground.
  • Please set empty glasses at the end of the tables so our staff doesn't have to get too close to you.
  • Before sitting down at a table, please give our staff enough time to clean the table after the previous group leaves.
  • Don’t gather in groups. Maintain social distancing at all times.
  • Lawn games are prohibited, in order to avoid cross contamination.
  • Pets on a leash are welcome. But please keep them close by your table to avoid them from encroaching on other people’s space.
  • • You are not allowed to bring in folding chairs or other furniture, games or equipment, as that will make it hard for us to ensure at least 6 ft. between groups.
  • • We’re not taking any reservations at this time.
  • Curbside pick-ups will continue to be available during our beer garden hours and we have designated parking spots to the left of the front door for you. Place your order ahead of time online and give the tap room a call when you arrive: 217-719-5345.

  • Friday - 3 PM to 10 PM

Our taproom hours are subject to change. Special holiday hours apply. Our taproom will be closed on Thanksgiving Day (Nov 28), Christmas Eve (Dec 24), Christmas Day (Dec 25), and New Year's Day (Jan 1). Our taproom will be open on New Year's Eve (Dec 31), Independence Day (July 4), day before Thanksgiving (Nov 27).

Our tap room seats 95 people in a cozy environment with a great view of our production brewery. Our outside beer garden seats 200 people. Its family friendly atmosphere is enhanced by a playground and outdoor games. It is surrounded by test plots of barley and hops.

Enjoy one of our beers from our self service bar. We also offer a wide array of sodas, coffee, wines, and cider. We even have juice boxes for the little ones. All beverages need to be purchased at our bar. Sorry, you can't bring your own. Feel free to bring your own food or enjoy meals from the delicious food trucks parked right outside of our building.

We accept table reservations. Reservations, however, are not required. We only reserve half of our inside seating at any time, so walk-ins will be able to seat themselves at any available tables. To place a reservation, email events@riggsbeer.com.





The Urbana bike path through Stone Creek leads right to our parking lot. For your convenience, you can find bike racks near the South East corner of our building.

The MTD green line stop at Stillwater Landing is only a 5 minute walk from our tap room. However, due to construction, the route may not be serviced regularly at this time. Please check with the Champaign Urbana Mass Transit District for more information.

Smoking is permitted in a designated area of our beer garden. Dogs are allowed in our beer garden if kept on a leash.

Our taproom and beer garden may occasionally be closed for special private events or may be open on additional days for special holidays and events. Please check back here or on our Facebook page for the latest updates. If you would like a special event hosted at our tap room and brewery, please contact events@riggsbeer.com.
