We are a Wisconsin microbrewery and restaurant located in downtown Minocqua. We offer a variety of different ales, trending from light and easy-drinking, smooth amber styles and the rotating darks. Always 6-8 different craft beers on tap at all times. We are not a fine dining restaurant, but offer up our own twist on American classics and evening entrees after 4:30 p.M. Live Music every Friday and Saturday in our upstairs lounge. If you are coming onto the island from the north, we are on east side of Hwy. 51 South, next to Torpy Park. We do have on site parking, while also being close in proximity to downtown parking lots. From the lake, we are in what is known as "Save More Bay." Our docks are capable of handling four-to-six watercraft depending on size.

Solid four from us

We stopped for lunch, with three generations in our party - child, parents, grandma. All were satisfied with their meal. I had a good sized burger, that was cooked well. We did not take advantage of the brews as we were driving, but there is a bar/brewery upstairs. Although they were a bit... read more

We stopped at the brewery after ziplining (worked up a thirst and hunger). The waitstaff is attentive, the food came quickly, and everything was delicious! I would definately recommend to my friends and will stop in again after our next ziplining experience....

Food was average. We were a little bit early for dinner time hours and the waitress was kind enough to still serve us dinner.

My husband and I went the Minocqua Brewing Co and went downstairs as they serve food there an not upstairs. We sat at the bar and asked about the beers that they had. The bartender wasn't really busy and walked over and slammed the beer menu in front of us and said, "Here's the menu" Well we walked out and... More

I love to try out local Micro Breweries or Brewpubs. This one did not disappoint. We had a great view of the lake. Service was friendly and prompt. The menu option was adequate and our food was well prepared. And the beer. Well I come from the Pacific Northwest where we have some of the "BEST" locally brewed beer anywhere... More

The place is crowded, so that should tell you something. We were there on a Friday night though - that might be normal for a weekend. Great beer cheese soup and lots of different kinds of seating areas.

We'd first gone many years ago when it first became a brewery - a big empty room with plastic lawn furniture. I think perhaps there's been a fire and a total rebuild since then with new management. Now the upstairs bar is fantastic - with some wall length windows overlooking the lake and comfortable couches and seats to sit on.... More

My partner and I started off by ordering some of their beer. I had the beer made with wild rice and didn't find it to be amazing or better than any average beer. We came on a Friday night to try the fish fry. We waited at the bar for about half an hour until our table was ready. We... More

I usually don't rate bad places, but the treatment of this waitress was awful! That being said this place has a fun energy and the bartender was nice, but our waitress was awful! I asked her about a vegetarian dish if it was gluten free she gave me attitude and said, "no it has soy in it." I asked if... More
