Our Mission exists because we enjoy beer. More specifically, we enjoy beer that is brewed in the great state of Wisconsin.  There's no greater pastime in Wisconsin than responsibly partaking in one or two well-crafted beers. Our goal is to create a place where one can easily discover all the beers made here in Wisconsin. With the many opportunities to sample locally crafted beer and, in some cases, tour the facilities in which they are made, this is the perfect state for those who appreciate the work that goes into crafting a beer.

    We aim to highlight many different breweries and local events around the state that showcase the hard work people put into the beer that is brewed in Wisconsin.

Be sure to check back often for Beer of the Week selections and updates to the Brew Blog.

Beers of the Week
(Previous Beer of the Week entries)
                           Lakefront Brewery - Local Acre Ale
If you're looking for a 100% locally sourced beer from right here in Wisconsin, look no further. Lakefront Brewery has all you're Wisconsin goodness waiting for you in a full pint bottle.  Lakefront is using what they call "wet hopping", taking the hops directly from the field to the brewery, preserving as much flavor as possible. The end result is an unfiltered lager with fresh hop taste and aroma.  Do yourself a favor and find one at your local beer provider. 
Blog Entries Upcoming Events
As I have the fortune to experience first hand Wisconsin's Breweries, Brew Pubs, Festivals and great watering holes, I'll try to write at least a little blurb about them for the site.  The great thing about Wisconsin is the endless opportunities for unique experiences interacting with craft beer. Let's hope for many opportunities and reasons to update the blog!
