4 of the Most Popular Door County Breweries
1. Door County Brewery
Door County Brewery is a family owned business that values the bond between friends and the community. Most of their beers are Belgian, French, and American style, crafted with as many locally sourced ingredients as possible. The Tap Room at Door County Brewery is a very popular spot for relaxing and meeting new friends. The original beams and stone foundation from its days as a feed mill give the room a unique and historic feel. You’re invited to grab a beer, join in on a game of cards, enjoy live music, and make fun new memories.
2. Shipwrecked Brewery
Located in Downtown Egg Harbor, Shipwrecked Brewery is a historic inn turned pub that serves only 100% Door County beers. In 1882, the brewery began as a saloon and inn that served the growing number of travelers in the area. In the 1920’s, Al Capone himself was a frequent visitor to the inn. Today, more than 1,100 barrels of hand-crafted beers are brewed annually, some of which are popular seasonal drinks. It’s a great place to indulge in beers that are so good, one pint will hardly be enough! During your visit, be sure to keep your eyes open for the ghosts that are rumored to still roam the pub.
