Description: Nestled in the heart of Northern Wisconsin’s lake country, the Minocqua Brewing Company is housed in an historic landmark building located on the island city’s north shore. Built in 1927 as a Masonic Temple, the building was transformed into a micro brewery and restaurant seventy years later. The brewery houses a seven and a half barrel system producing seven kinds of ales and lagers. The bar features a fine selection of wines, and cocktails, along with the skillfully crafted signature beer selections. The brewery's restaurant offers an interesting assortment of appetizers, sandwiches, soups, and salads with a gourmet twist.

“Great place - food and music.”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

This is more than a traditional brewpub. The food is good (and the beer is great! - just don't pin your hopes on finding a Miller, Coors or Bud clone - they serve real beer here) and the live music is varied and pleasant, all in a great relaxed atmosphere. Only "ding" is they don't serve more than an appetizer menu upstairs in the music lounge - and won't even let you bring it up from the restaurant downstairs.

“Nice view of the water on a beautiful fall day”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

Stopped for lunch on a lovely fall Sunday. Microbrewery beer was one of the best I've had. I had a Reuben & Pat had a burger. Presentation was very good. Flavor was good. We were seated by a window over looking the lake. All in all, it was a very pleasant experience.

“Popular but average”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

There food selection was good but the value you got for the price was not as exciting to me. The service was just OK and even though we wer seated right away we had to find a waitress to get service.

“Good selection of lunch items”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

We stopped here for lunch on a weekday, thinking it would not be too busy. Wrong!! There was a retirement party going on and it was crowded and very noisy. Despite the crowd, we were seated immediately and our server appeared within a few minutes. She suggested we order soon, before the retirement crowd did. We followed her suggestion and were served promptly. This is a good place for lunch and they have a number of microbrewy beers on tap. The food was above average.

“Went there BeefORama weekend”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

Great time. The menu was a good as always, and the beer selection rocked. It was real busy (which is expected) but the outdoor patio on the upper level was a great place to relax. My only suggestion would be to have an outside Bloody Mary bar somewhere. I think that would take some of the pressure off of the bartenders at the inside bar.

We roamed the town, but on three different occasions we decided to go back to the Brewery to sit, relax and enjoy a beer.
