Millstream Brewing Company was established in the fall of 1985 in The Amana Colonies by locals Carrol Zuber and brothers James and Dennis Roemig. Joseph Pickett designed the brewery and created the original recipes. Originally Millstream's only products consisted of the Millstream Lager and the Schild Brau Amber. In 2001 three employees formed a partnership and purchased the brewery. Since that time Millstream has continued to grow and expand their product line, now offering almost 15 different beers throughout the year and two types of Soda.
