If you are a fan of craft brews and considering a visit or a move to Wisconsin, you are in luck! While there were not many options for lovers of craft beer in the past in Wisconsin, the state is quickly filling up with many options for sophisticated beer drinkers.
If you are planning a trip or a move to Wisconsin, there are many quality craft breweries to choose from. You can plan a whole day, or even a weekend visiting several of the state’s best craft breweries. If you are planning a move to the state, you will have a different brewery to visit with new friends every weekend. Consider the following amazing breweries in Wisconsin:
3 Sheeps Brewing Company is located in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. 3 Sheeps is owned by Grant Pauly, who initially started home-brewing as just a hobby. However, his hobby quickly turned into an award-winning business.
The brewery is known for its year-round brews, such as “Really Cool Waterslides,” an IPA and “Baaad Boy,” a black wheat ale. 3 Sheeps is also known for its rotating seasonal beers, such as a coffee ale and a honey IPA. 3 Sheeps is definitely worth a trip to Sheboygan for craft brew lovers.
Lakefront Brewery is located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and is another award-winning brewery. Lakefront was born from another home-brewing hobby, as well as a rivalry between two brothers, Russ and Jim Klisch, as to who could make the better home brew.
Lakefront was established in 1987, and since then has become a well-known and well-respected brewery. It is known and loved both locally and nationally, and has even won some awards internationally. Some of the brewery’s famous beers include Rendezvous, Bridge Burner, and Fixed Gear. If you are planning a move to Wisconsin, and would like to live near Lakefront, there are many Milwaukee houses for sale.
Ale Asylum is located in Madison, Wisconsin’s capital city, and is considered the first craft brewery in the city. It was established in 2006 and is known for its eccentricity in both label design and flavor.
Ale Asylum has some great brews that are available year round, as well as some seasonal favorites. Rear round brews include a chocolate porter called Contorter Porter and an American Pale Ale called Hopalicious. Some of their seasonal offerings include a Scotch ale and a Belgian-style Tripel. If you like the idea of checking out a different kind of brewery, head to Madison to visit Ale Asylum, see the beautiful artwork on the bottle labels, and try their unique brews.
