Breweries & Wine Bars

Raise a glass in Manitowoc! With a rich brewing history and the strong presence of Briess Malt & Ingredient Co. still today, it is no surprise that Manitowoc’s brew scene continues to grow each and every year. 

Courthouse Pub was the first brewpub to make its mark in Manitowoc. PetSkull Brewing, now located in Manitowoc’s River Point District, has continued to grow in recent years, now offering 20 beers on tap and a rotating menu of shareable Cajun party food. With a spacious taproom and outdoor dog-friendly beer garden, Sabbatical Brewing Co. is another must-visit brewery. Craft Creek Brewing, Manitowoc’s newest downtown microbrewery offers a wide variety of brews, many of which are a nod to Manitowoc’s industry and history.

Make plans to visit one with some friends or make it a weekend brew tour and stop at them all! Cheers!
