Good Beer Hunting

Currently, it's only framework. There’s a sign hanging on the fence surrounding the construction site, otherwise you’d have no idea that these bare bones will soon be home to Door County Brewing's new taproom and production space. Since 2012, Door County’s been serving beer out of their small taproom in Baileys Harbor, WI—a building that has barely enough room to brew limited-release batches out of the basement on a 7-barrel system.

As a result, they contract most of their beer across the state at Octopi Brewing. The new facility, just down the street from their current space and across the street from the Lake Michigan shore, will allow the brewery to produce more beer in Door County, serve from 32 taps, bottle limited-release batches, and have an outdoor beer garden.

Oh, and that old taproom? The plan is to use it for an expanded sour/wild yeast program.
