Featured Breweries: Sand Creek Brewery

The story of Sand Creek Brewery is actually the story of three breweries: The Oderbolz Brewing Co., The Pioneer Brewing Company; and the Sand Creek Brewing Company. In 1856, Swiss immigrant Ulrich Oderbolz founded his brewing company in Black River Falls on the very site of the present Sand Creek Brewery. He cut his brewery into the side of a hill, as was the practice in those days, and created thick stone foundation walls to make a brew cellar for keeping the beer fresh, using blocks of ice cut each winter from a nearby pond. Sand Creek still stores its bounty in the original 19th century beer cellar.

Through generations of hardships and tragedies, the brewery, the brews, and the legacy lived on, except for a “brief” 75-year-long hiatus from 1920 to 1995! Prohibition closed its doors, the building changed hands, and was nearly lost to fires and floods before winning Gold medals at the World Beer Cup in 2000. Today, they produce more than 29 different products, and Sand Creek still uses the historic gravity-fed brewing technique with the grains being introduced on the top floor, and systematically transferred through the brew process between floors, ending in the original beer cellar. Your favorite Beer of the Month Clubinvites you to enjoy -
