Tribute Brewing Co. Taphouse has opened its doors in Eagle River. Co-owner Bill Summers pours guests beer from 12

other Wisconsin craft breweries. Tribute Brewing is located at 1106 N. Bluebird Road.

Tribute brewery, taphouse brings craft beer to Eagle River It’s a great time to be a beer lover with the opening of Tribute Brewing Co. and Tribute Brewing Co. Taphouse in Eagle River. Located at 1106 N. Bluebird Road, Tribute Brewing Co. will begin brewing its first batch of beer this summer. Co-owner and brewmaster Marc O’Brien, who has been homebrewing for 16 years, plans to brew his award-winning recipes on a much larger scale, using the same techniques to create high-quality, freshly brewed beer. “As a homebrewer, I’ve brewed 10-gallon batches at a time,” said O’Brien. “Now I’ll adjust my recipes to brew seven barrels at a time, equaling approximately 217 gallons of beer. I want to make beers that everyone would enjoy drinking.” O’Brien will brew with equipment previously used by O’So Brewing Company

in Plover and Lazy Monk in Eau Claire. Co-owner Bill Summers said many great beers have

passed through that equipment and he expects many more to follow. “Marc is a very talented

brewer and has won many awards on local and regional levels,” said Summers. “He really puts his heart into brewing great beer. I think visitors will be impressed with the variety of beer styles he is capable of producing on a high level.” While the brewery waits for its pending brewing license approval, Tribute Brewing Co. Taphouse has opened its doors and has been pouring guests beer from other Wisconsin craft breweries. “We visited three major craft beer hotspots, Asheville, N.C., Austin, Texas, and Fort Collins, Colo., to find the latest trends in the craft brewing industry,” Summers said. “We think the relaxed atmosphere we’ve created will offer beer lovers something unique to the area.” Tribute Taphouse is open Wednesdays through Saturdays from 4 to 9 p.m. and noon to 3 p.m. Sundays.
