Stevens Point Brewery
Flavored with History
Start with a brewery steeped in history by visiting the Stevens Point Brewery. A local favorite since 1857, the Stevens Point Brewery is one of the oldest continuously operating breweries in the United States. The location hasn’t changed since the beginning; although the buildings have continued to expand as does the business, having completed four expansions since 2010. Schedule a tour to walk through the brew house, aging cellar, bottling house, and warehouse to watch the history in action. After the tour, visit the hospitality room for samples of their best brews and specialty sodas.

The Stevens Point Brewery is located at 2617 Water Street in Stevens Point (at the same location where it started in 1857). Think you’ve seen it all? With continued expansion, the tour has changed and, it's worth another stop.
During the summer months, hang out on the Point Patio, the perfect outdoor beer garden oasis next to the brewery. Serving up brews on tap, in a variety of sizes, you'll find Point beer, Ciderboys, Whole Hog, Tea Runner, and Point Soda available for purchase.
