The Joseph Huber Brewing Company was founded in 1845 in Monroe, Wisconsin. Originally called The Blumer Brewery, it adopted its current name in 1947. It is the oldest continually operating brewery in the Midwest and second oldest in the United States.
In 2006, Mountain Crest Brewing Company of Calgary, Alberta, Canada purchased the Joseph Huber Brewing Company, the Huber and Rhinelander brands of beer, and the Blumers brand of soda. The Monroe brewery was renamed Minhas Craft Brewery. Until 2013, the Berghoff Brewing Company contracted with Mountain Crest to brew Berghoff beer, the brewery's most popular label, at the Monroe plant. It continues to produce Berghoff's root beer, which is sold in traditional glass bottles in the Midwestern United States. The Berghoff brand was named after the Berghoff Cafe and Tavern in Chicago.
