Ahnapee Brewing originated in 1868 in the city of Ahnapee, now known as Algoma, as a premier producer of Wisconsin craft beers. The head brewmaster was Henry Schmiling, and Schmiling’s Ahnapee Lager was known far and wide for its Wisconsin-made quality. Sadly, hops blight put the original brewery out of business in 1886. The current chapter in the brewery’s history began in the summer of 2013. Ahnapee Brewery’s craft beers are now produced in small batches and feature full-flavored beer with aging potential, which are served for limited hours in a two-stall garage turned tap room. Pints, half pints and flights are available for purchase. Leashed and well-mannered pets are welcome in the outdoor seating areas.
