Looking for craft beer rich with flavor and local history? Find a long list of seasonal and year-round beers at Point Brewery, one of the oldest continuously operating breweries in the country. Not sure where to start? Here are three to-try brews from Stevens Point's oldest brewery.
Cookies 'N Cream Stout
Curb your sweet tooth with this seasonal brew. New to Point Brewery in 2022, this delectable dessert stout tastes just like everyone's favorite sandwich cookie. Experience sweet cream flavors sandwiched between a dark chocolate malt as you pour back this craft brew. More of a peanut butter lover? Try the PB Cup Peanut Butter Porter, blending tastes of dark chocolate and smooth peanut butter.
Hoptastic American Pale Ale
If you like a beer with a hop-forward finish, then you'll love Hoptastic! Featuring Cascade, Citra, and Centennial hops, Hoptastic is a fan favorite that can be enjoyed year-round. Pair this beer with blackened chicken, spicy dishes, and shellfish to fully bring out the flavor.
Ciderboys Strawberry Magic
Get a taste of Cider Boys' Strawberry Magic Hard Cider and you'll think it was brewed with a little bit of magic! In this year-round brew, tart meets sweet for a magical blend of crisp apple hard cider and refreshing strawberry.
We know this pushes us past three suggestions, but it is definitely worth an honorable mention! Check out their line of gourmet sodas that includes Root Beer, Vanilla Cream, Black Cherry Cream, Orange Cream, and Kitty Cocktail. For an even tastier sip, make it a float with a scoop of ice cream!
