From the loose horses and fires, to the ice houses and fermentation vaults, Ahnapee Brewery owns an integral part of beer-making history in Wisconsin as far back as 1868. In fact, Henry Schmiling, the Civil War veteran brewer, is the great-great-great-great uncle of current owners, Aric and Brad Schmiling. Fast forward 150 years to find Ahnapee Brewery reimagined by Head Brewer, Nick Calaway. True-to-style small craft batches of full-flavored beers are produced in the old Carnival Guernsey Dairy northwest of Algoma, and are served in a two-stall-garage-turned-tap room two doors east of the winery.
Our flagship beer, Two Stall, is a subtly sweet chocolate milk stout. Other regular offerings on tap typically are Little Soldier (American Amber Ale), Long Goodbye (Bavarian Helles), Gray Wolf (Vienna Lager), and Noble IPA(a German inspired IPA). Rotating seasonal brews like Fun Guy (Mushroom Brown Ale), Bavarian Dunkel, Pumpkin Ale, Chores (Farmhouse Saison) and multiple seasonal favorites also keep the taps full year round.
