    Art of Brewing/Distilling

    There aren’t many better ways to spend a weekend than sampling the craft beers and spirits through the Central Wisconsin Craft Collective in the Stevens Point area.

    Start your weekend trip at the Point Brewery, one of the oldest continuously operating breweries in the country. Tours at the recently expanded facility occur at specific times Monday through Saturday. Be sure to check out their website and find a time that works for you! Reservations are encouraged. Have a little more time? Stop in at District 1 Brewing, grab a beer, and play some games like their giant connect 4. 

    Stop and grab some food in the area at the iconic Hilltop Pub & Grill or downtown at the fine dining restaurant, Father Fats

    Next, head to Amherst to visit Central Waters Brewing Company, which offers a free tour on Saturday (see their website for times). When you’re done with the tour, sample the latest seasonal releases in their taproom or out on the patio. 

    Looking for a bite to eat after your craft beer excursion? Try some of the nearby dining options, including Ambrosia Pub & Grill or Two Lakes Restaurant in Almond.

    Kick up your feet and rest at one of the Stevens Point Area’s great lodging properties and get some rest before Day 2 of your tour.

    On Saturday, you can stop in for a beer straight off the canning line at Plover’s O’so Brewing Company. And don't miss out on great sips from Great Northern Distilling by grabbing a bottled cocktail through curbside pickup. 

    While in the Plover area, don’t miss authentic Mexican food from Tulum or the expansive beer list at Mikey’s Neighborhood Bar & Grill.

    There are several don’t-miss brewery events throughout the year. Be sure to check these out if you’re in town:

    • Point Bock Run, March
    • Food Truck Festivals at District 1, April, July, September
    • Pointoberfest and Blubber Run, September
