Wisconsin has some of the best breweries in the country, so we’re proud to only serve beer and cider from this great state. We have 20 taps, but we get our brews from a variety of breweries across Wisconsin to make sure we always have an assortment of quality ales, lagers and ciders.
Since we love each of these Wisconsin breweries (and their beer) so much, we thought, “Why not take everyone on a road trip to visit them?” But then we remembered we can’t do that
and make our one-of-a-kind Juicy Lucys, so we decided on a blog instead to give you some ideas for your summer bucket list.
Join us on our Summer Road Trip to Lucy’s favorite Wisconsin breweries as we head west of Beloit for our first five stops!
Fun Fact: The Potosi Brewing Company was founded in 1852 and was once the fifth largest brewery in Wisconsin. They survived Prohibition, but ended up closing in 1972, then reopened in 2008 after a major renovation by the Potosi Foundation, a nonprofit and sole owner of the brewery. Their facility is also home to the National Brewery Museum.
Lucy’s Favorite: Gandy Dancer Porter
Fun Fact: The brewery has been around for over 160 years and has had multiple different names with many owners who were prominent in the Monroe area AKA the cheese capital of the U.S.
Lucy’s Favorite: Blumers Root Beer
Location: New Glarus

Lucy’s Favorite: Spotted Cow
Fun Fact: The brewery sources ingredients from local growers whenever they can and every piece of the brewery that could be made in Wisconsin was made in Wisconsin. At Wisconsin Brewing Company, they “live, eat, breathe and brew Wisconsin.”
