Green Bay Beer Guide

Just over one year after Thrillist named Green Bay an untapped beer city on the brink of exploding, Greater Green Bay has ensured this prediction come to fruition. There are currently six craft breweries overflowing with success (and suds), located within a few miles of each other and one more just outside Green Bay on the shores of Lake Michigan in the quaint little harbor town of Algoma.

You can never have enough beer around, but with so many breweries so close to each other, what sets one apart from the other. Each brewery has its own story to tell, with some truly unique characteristics to provide beer lovers something special when visiting their establishments and drinking their creations.  

TITLETOWN BREWING COMPANY

Take a brewery tour of Titletown Brewing Company to sip out of its Beerbler - a 'bubbler' is what Wisconsinites call a drinking fountain, but that's a post for a different time. What's important is that this drinking fountain flows with Titletown beer!! Oh, and they were named "Best Brewpub in America" by USA Today in 2016 and defended their title again in 2017.

For breathtaking views of Downtown Green Bay and the Fox River, head to Titletown's Roof Tap. This taproom, located on the roof, is open year-round, with both indoor and outdoor seating.

If you’re looking for food, the historic train depot across from the taproom is Titletown Brewing Company’s restaurant. This train station was built in the late 19th century with service along the coast of Lake Michigan to Milwaukee. Early Green Bay Packers teams departed for away games via this train depot and through crowds of cheering fans. Almost a century after the train depot opened and many years of history, Titletown Brewing Company was opened in the now vacant building in 1996 and has been writing a new and different kind of history.

BADGER STATE BREWING

Step into a repurposed warehouse that is now Badger State Brewing Company. This brewery, located in the shadows of Lambeau Field, is bursting with Wisconsin pride! Wisconsin’s state nickname is the Badger State. Aside from brewing and pouring their own beer, they are proud to pour fellow Wisconsin craft beers!

The Badger State beer list is impressive, ranging from their year-round Walloon Witbier, Green Chop IPA, and On Wisconsin! Red Ale to seasonal brews like honey lemon kolsch, cinnamon scotch ale, smoked jalapeño porter, pumpkin ale and many more.

There’s no need to worry about having a beer alone—your pup can join you for a pint at Badger State—just for company, though, please don't give beer to dogs. Enjoy outdoor seating in the Beer Garden, or sit at the bar inside with your furry friend.

LEATHERHEAD BREWING COMPANY

Enjoy your beer among the very equipment that brewed it. Leatherhead Brewing Company situates its tables and bar around the perimeter of this brewpub while the brewing process is located right in the middle of it all. I’m pretty sure this beer-centric feng shui makes the beer taste even better - don't just take my word for it though.

Head to this Stadium District brewery—you’ll be able to pour your own beer at their specially designed tap-walls. Sip as much or as little as you like, providing a great opportunity to try a variety of different, new beers.

NOBLE ROOTS BREWING

With deep roots in home brewing as a family bonding activity, this east-side brewery offers a welcoming and trendy atmosphere while pouring “home-grown-beer!” Many of their beers have fun stories either behind the name or the recipe—Mackinac Island Amber, was home-brewed many years ago to bring along on a weekend road trip with friends and was a big hit.  

Continuing to hone their brewing knowledge and skills, the guys of Noble Roots began entering their suds into competitions. They won four awards in the first year of competition! This brought some added confidence in their beer pushing them to follow their dream of one day opening a brewery.

Noble Roots is proud to be a neighborhood brewery with approachable beer, a relaxed atmosphere, and an at-home feel. On warm evenings, sip your beer on the outdoor patio or enjoy the fresh air in the taproom with the large ‘garage-door’ open.

STILLMANK BREWING COMPANY

Disco may be dead, but don’t tell Stillmank Brewing—their Wisco Disco beer is certainly alive and thriving. This ESB (Extra Special Bitter), an English Style-Pale Ale, is their most well-known brew. Wisco Disco has earned two gold medals at the US Open Beer Championship in 2014 and 2015; and a silver medal at the 2013 World Beer Champioship.

Perky Porter is Top 5 Ranked English Porter on every beer lover’s favorite app, Untappd. This porter is brewed with local coffee from La Java Coffee Roasting House. Ordering a Perky Porter at Stillmank Brewing Company will get you some taproom specials. It is served in a large coffee mug, often with a donut hole on the side. When you see the Double Perky on tap, be sure to ask for a pour of that to get a little extra coffee punch. From keg to tap, the Perky Porter passes through fresh ground La Java coffee.

Brad Stillmank, owner and head brewer, became a Certified Cicerone in 2009 – this man knows beer and knows how to make really good beer!

HINTERLAND BREWING COMPANY

Hinterland. The land beyond. The unexplored. A journey. Drinking Hinterland beer brings you on a journey to explore unknown territory.

Following a dream to be a [literal] rock star traveling coast-to-coast in a VW Bus somehow landed (future brewer and business owner) Bill Trassler writing for Beer, The Magazine. Aside from just enjoying drinking beer, Bill became enthralled with the beer-making world.  

Bill decided to take his own stab at the brewing process by purchasing an old cheese factory in Green Bay—what could be more Wisconsin than buying a cheese factory to turn it into a brewery? This has since succeeded into an amazing brewery and restaurant in Green Bay’s Titletown District across the street from Lambeau Field.

This craft beer pours with intense flavor and zeal bringing you to hinterland with every sip!
