WAUSAU

Vibin’ Up North.

Our brewers like to head up north as much as anyone. So, the only thing to do was to open a pub in Wausau. The only Dane outside of the Madison area, our Wausau location is spacious but warm for those chilly Wisconsin winter nights, while offering a large patio that’s often home to live music.

Friends & Beers for more than 25 years.

Two college friends set out to do something relatively unheard of in the mid-90s: Open a pub that brews its own beer, while providing food that’s fresh, worldly and comforting. Nearly three decades later, our pubs remain true to that mission. Always local. Always welcoming. And always committed to the craft.
