The Brewhouse and Brewing Experience opened to visitors for the first time when Old World Wisconsin’s summer hours kicked off on Wednesday, June 15. The attraction is included as part of the site’s general admission experience. The opening of the Brewhouse marks the completion of the first step in a multiphase project that will transform Old World Wisconsin’s main entry area and allow visitors to explore Wisconsin’s brewing heritage through immersive experiences and demonstrations.

“Wisconsin has a rich beer and brewing heritage, and we are excited to tell the stories of the state’s beer making traditions in a way that will engage and inspire our visitors,” said Dan Freas, Old World Wisconsin site director.
