By on

Got a thurst for original handcrafted beer? Then head to the Pinch Penny Pub to sip on brews made by the only micro brewery in Southern Illinois, Copper Dragon Brewing Company.

Copper Dragon beers are unfiltered, fresh and never more than a few days old. The Pinch Penny Pub and the brewery are connected and collectively owned. There's also the Pinch Penny Liquor store nearby. The brewery becomes a concert venue hosting a mix of local and well established bands, but is closed when no special events or shows are scheduled. The Pinch Penny's beer garden is the place for live music during summer months. The pub attracts college students who come to scarf down pizzas, hot sandwiches, chicken strips and typical bar food. In addition to Dragon brews, the pub serves a long list of beers and mixed drinks and offers daily specials.

Both the brewery and pub are located on East Grand Avenue in Carbondale, across from the Souther Illinois Rec. Center.
