Our famous beer began with a trip across Europe, when Goose Island founder (and unabashed beer lover) John Hall took a tour across the continent. Pint by pint, he savored the styles and selections of brews in every region, and thought to himself, "America deserves some damn fine beer like this, too." Craft brewing wasn't widely known at the time, but upon return from his European sojourn, John set out to change all that. He settled down in his hometown of Chicago - a city perfect for craft beer, with rapidly evolving tastes and the largest system of fresh water on the planet. And then he got to brewing.
WBC is located in "Hometown USA" - Verona, Wisconsin. It's a fun place to visit, a great place to live, and a darn near perfect spot to brew beer. At Wisconsin Brewing Company, we're excited to be brewing great craft beer for great beer-drinking folks. You'll find WBC out in the community, at the brewery, or anywhere there are good people getting together for great times.
We are frequently asked "How did you decide to open a brewpub?" and "How were you able to do it?", and quite honestly, the answer is simple - Family & Friends! Oh, pardon me. I shouldn't forget to mention, as most fine Wisconsin folk do, we enjoy good food and beer. With the help of numerous family members and great friends, Vintage Brewing Co. opened in January of 2010, and we served our first house brewed beer in February of 2010.
One Barrel Brewing Company is rooted in historic brewing lore. Founded during the 377th annual meeting of the Gentleman's Brewing and Distilling Society, it was decreed that OBBC would showcase how approachable making and drinking all manner of beer can be. We brew unique beers, one barrel at a time, and serve them for a limited time. The only thing we don't offer are the answers to life's greatest questionsâ€¦..although some say they can be found at the bottom of a glass!!.
1988. Belgium. Boy on bike. (Ok, make that a young man of 32.) As our aspiring young homebrewer rides his mountain bike with "fat tires" through European villages famous for beer, New Belgium Brewing Company was but a glimmer in his eye. Or basement. For Jeff Lebesch would return to Fort Collins with an imagination full of recipes and a handful of ingredients ready to embark on a whole new journey.
Based in the heart of Stockport for almost two centuries, and owning 300 tenanted and managed pubs, inns and hotels across the North West, 'Robinsons' is one of oldest and most respected names in British brewing history.
Real ale fan and history aficionado Bruce Dickinson, Maiden's vocalist, played a major role in developing the unique flavor of the beer, entailing ongoing visits to Robinson's brewery in Stockport.
