“tastiest brews in Wisconsin”
The Dan and Lori White family purchased the historic 1929 Free Mason's building after fire gutted the restaurant in 2004. The history of the building itself is something to boast. After it's use as a Masonic Temple, the building became a church, school and Library before transforming to a Brewpub in 1997. Although fire ripped the restaurant apart, the brew system stayed in place. Dan, Lori and their two sons, Dustin and Ryan, made the decision to continue building on the success of the Brewpub, making it one of the top places to visit when in the Minocqua area. The process wasn't simple – six months of remodeling, developing a menu and learning the process of producing a clean, well-balanced selection of craft beers. The pub opened for business, January 2006, and has continued a steep growth in business and production. Our Brewery boasts a modest 7 barrel system, but it's not stopped Ryan and his assistant from setting a record for production in 2012 with 388 barrels of Minocqua Brewery beer. There is no doubt that at our peak tourist season, both Ryan and his assistant brewer, have their hands full keeping up with the demand. It's not uncommon for a batch to be consumed, faster than it's produced. A good problem to have! Our building now operates on two levels – the main level Brewpub and restaurant located beneath our brewery lounge upstairs. Divano has turned into a well-known live music venue in Northern Wisconsin, featuring a full-service bar and some of the best views Minocqua has to offer. It has also been booked for private events such as weddings, rehearsal dinners, banquets and holiday celebrations.
