This Wisconsin Farm Brewery Is Unexpectedly Awesome
Amery is small town about 60 miles northeast of Minneapolis all the way in the western part of the state. Tucked into a barn in this small, out of the way place is one of the coolest new breweries in Wisconsin. This awesome, rustic chic spot is what happened when the owner found herself newly single and in possession of a barn. Amery Ale Works was born. Maybe in other states that story ends up another way, but in Wisconsin, we absolutely understand how the next logical step was a brewery.
This list of things to love about this newcomer is long, but the coolest might be how this small spot has quickly become a local favorite. This small town a bit of a destination now as people come check out Amery Ale Works. These folks have integrated quickly in the community, hosting trivia nights, craft nights and a whole host of other events. More than just a bar, this place has become a community gathering spot.
The other thing that makes Amery Ale Works amazing and unique is how they're partnering with their neighbors to grow the ingredients necessary to make the beer. This is a hyper-local spot in a small Wisconsin farm town that's embracing their roots.
Basically, Amery Ale Works looks like the backyard bar you dream of having. Folks everywhere spend thousands of dollars trying to create the sort of inviting rustic chic charm this place just authentically exudes. It's warm and welcoming, with a fire pit and cornhole boards. Some days you'll find a s'mores bar, others you'll find a whole smorgasbord of Bloody Mary fixins.
Whenever they refer to themselves online, they call this place the Bar(n), which pretty much fits perfectly. Yes, it's a rustic barn in a small farm town, but it's also the best local bar you could imagine having the luck to go to.
Hanging out at Amery Ale Works feels like having a neighbor with the very best backyard you've ever thought to imagine. It's easy to imagine spending a whole day here with friends, relaxing, unwinding, drinking some fabulous beer and supporting a small business.
It's easy to imagine that this lighted Amery sign inside will grace many an Instagram photo. You can see friends coming back here again and again and telling everyone they know.
In addition to the beer, made in partnership with local farms, you'll also find a locally-sourced menu here with nibbles and noshes that pair perfectly with what's on tap.

Amery Ale Works hosts a huge array of events, from local showcases to a great Oktoberfest celebration. Everything here is authentic, both in practice and in spirit. This is one local spot that's embraced being in small-town Wisconsin and has been embraced right back by the community.
This truly is the perfect farm brewery. It's as Wisconsin as you can get and the perfect small-town gathering place.
