Great Dane Wausau

The Great Dane Pub brings Wisconsin’s number one brewery/restaurant concept to Wausau! Located just off highway 39 at exit 191, The Wausau Great Dane, situated in the former Hereford & Hops building at 2035 Sherman Street, opened for business in May 2009. Extensive interior renovations have created the ultimate brewpub experience for the Wausau community, and the easy-on, easy-off highway location is perfect for travelers headed to summer lake destinations or to the Granite Peak ski area in winter.

The Great Dane in Wausau features all the amenities of the Madison pubs, plus a 75-seat private event space and 300-seat banquet hall for weddings, anniversaries and corporate functions. The main bar room’s raised circular booths are a great spot for dining and people watching. The stylish pool hall bar overlooks two intimate lounge areas, fireplace, six TVs, plus billiards, shuffleboard, darts and other games. The main dining area includes comfortable “snug” booths and a private room with seating for up to twenty-four guests. If the weather is nice enjoy your meal in our 100 seat Beer Garden or sample some beers on the outdoor deck. If not, find your niche inside with “WAUSOME” views of the brewing tanks and enjoy the excellent products, service and atmosphere that make The Great Dane Pub & Brewing Company America’s quintessential brewpubs!
