About Door County Brewery
Located in Bailey’s Harbor, less than 15 minutes from The Ashbrooke, Door County Brewing Company makes its delicious beers using as many ingredients directly from Door County as possible!

This reflects their dedication to making traditional brews through a process fueled by passion and a love for beer.
