#ExploreFoxCities Craft Brews

Craft brews are definitely becoming the norm in pubs and bars everywhere, and the Fox Cities is no exception.

We've got plenty of great local craft beers brewed right here in the Fox Cities. From established brewpubs that have been here for decades to new and upcoming breweries, you're sure to find a brew for any taste.

Stone Arch Brewpub

The oldest continually running brewpub in Wisconsin, brewing seven beers year-round and another dozen changing with the seasons. They also make their own soda for kids! You can pull up a seat in their tap room or enjoy their outdoor beer garden. You’ll also find a full food menu offering traditional pub-fare as well as a few specialty items. Their beer can be found on tap at many other area restaurants and in bottles across northeast Wisconsin.

Fox River Brewing Company

They produce 26 different beers over the course of a year and serve their beer on tap at their restaurant located inside Fox River Mall. Being attached to the mall is a unique spot for a brewing company, but with its own entrance and patio seating, it doesn’t feel at all like you’re sitting in a mall. With a full drink and food menu, it offers a nice break from your shopping or a great spot for relaxing evening out. Their beer can also be found on tap at area restaurants and in bottles sold at Eastern Wisconsin stores.

They’ve got nine different brews on tap, from light and refreshing to dark and rich, you can sample several of their creations by ordering a beer flight. You can also enjoy their full pub menu, some of which is built seasonally and uses locally sourced goods.

Old Bavarian Brewing Company

Here you’ll find authentic brewed beer in accordance with the German Purity Law, which dates back to 1516 and allows for only water, barley, and hops to be used in the brewing process. Their German beer is brewed at Fox River Brewing Company under the supervision of Old Bavarian’s Master Brewer.
