Farm couple transforms Rochelle theater into new craft beer distillery


A farming couple is putting the final touches on a new craft beer distillery in an old Rochelle theater.

Rick and Doris Kennay and their family, farmers from Ashton, have purchased and rehabilitated the former Hub Theater in downtown Rochelle to become “Illinois largest craft distillery.”

The Kennay Farms Distillery, at 416 Lincoln Highway, will be holding a ribbon cutting ceremony on Thursday, March 14th at 6:30 p.m.
