Ale Trail WI - Northeast Wisconsin Brewery Tours

McFleshman's Brewing Co - Appleton

Fox Cities Beer Scene

It wasn’t more than 7 years ago that the Fox Cities had only one brewery. Now our area features 8 craft breweries. You could argue, enough to build a brewery tour business around.

The beer is scene is diverse, fun, collaborative, and delicious. Between all these breweries, there is lots of great food but there is also some kind of beer or seltzer for everyone. Beyond that, it’s incredible to see how many breweries work together and support one another on specific recipes, events, and just promoting the craft beer culture in Northeast Wisconsin.

Currently, the Ale Trail stops at 4 breweries which means that sometimes several of our great local breweries are left out. However, we’re here to uplift all breweries in our region and want to make sure you know about all the great craft beer right here in your backyard.
