In 2012, Wisconsin ranked 11th nationally in craft breweries per capita.[1]

Breweries in Wisconsin produce many different styles of beer.[2][3][4][5][6]

Some breweries package their beer in bottles or cans for retail sale. Some breweries produce kegs of beer, to be sold on draft at taverns and restaurants, or at the brewery's own tap room. Brewpubs combine brewing operations with full-service restaurants. Commercially licensed breweries use one or several of these methods to sell their products.
