About The Brewery

Our state-of-the-art 15 bbl brewery was the first of its kind and size engineered by WH Sprinkman out of Waukesha, WI. We have 4 talented brewers with a combined 45 years of experience. They brew 3-4 batches a week and 80-100 unique recipes a year. These include Hoops-centric Pales and IPAs, barrel aged delights, sours, American & German style light beers, wheat beers of all styles, fruit selections and our No 42 One-Off series which highlights one of our classic styles infused with fruits, peppers and other cool ingredients.
