Description: We are a Wisconsin Micro Brewery 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.

I took my girlfriend out for a "birthday lunch" at the Minocqua Brewery. We were seated quickly, at a table facing the lake and given a menu. Our waiter appeared and immediately took our drink order and wished my friend a Happy Birthday. My Bloody Mary was nicely spiced and came with a pickle, olive, and mushroom. The beer chaser... More

Stopped in for the fish fry on a Friday night. The beer was very good and the Canadian Whitefish was awesome as well as being reasonably priced. I will be back for sure!!!

I went here for dinner and eat at the bar because there was a 45 minute wait for the tables. The bar was very clean and had the Badger basketball game on. I had the Mediterranean turkey burger with sweet potato fries and it was very delicious. I wasn't really hungry but ate the entire plate. Coming to a brewery,... More

The Bloody Mary's and brewery beers are excellent, having fun names for their local brews. We had the perch and also the whitefish dinners, both were really good. The garlic mashed potatoes were slightly crunchy on the outside and creamy on the inside. Their sweet potato fries are very good and the prime rib was the best my husband has... More

Had a great time and great food. Friendly staff and very good beer. We come here every year and haven't been disappointed yet. We will be back this summer.

This place is good value for money, not cheap but reasonable. The food is freshly prepared, tasty and much better thank you'd expect from an average bar or brew pub. They brew their own beer it is universally excellent. My fave is the porter; a fantastic winter pint!

My wife and I make a point of returning to Minocqua Brewing Co everytime that we are in the area, and we are never disappointed. The service is friendly, the food is excellent, and we both love the views of the lake. I would highly recommend checking it out when in the Minocqua area, and especially the Steak and Shrimp...

My husband and I were excited to finally see what the minocqua brewery was all about so we finally got the kids a babysitter and had a much-needed date night. Unfortunately the wait staff sat us down at a table in a room with no windows and packed full of families with toddler and preschool aged kids. It was loud... More

This is such a varied menu with unusual things popping up all the time and everything I have tried is delicious. My dinner companion always tries one of the microbrews available and rave about them every time. When I get to visit Northern Wisconsin I make a point of dining here and am never disappointed. Great service, great good, beautiful... More
