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. Fast forward 150 years to find Ahnapee Brewery re-imagined 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.
A sip on history. Our American Amber Ale, Little Soldier, is named after Henry Schmiling our 1800s head brewer of short stature and once Civil War veteran. Or try our Gray Wolf, the English translation of Ahnapee, a Vienna Lager. This brew is our brewers representation of the 1800s Ahnapee Lager which was at that time, malted on premise and brewed by Henry himself.
