Located in the heart of Milwaukee is Mob Craft Brewery & Taproom—a fairly young addition to the Wisconsin brewery scene, but a favorite among locals nonetheless.

Esser’s Cross Plains Brewery

If you’re looking to brush up on Wisconsin’s extensive history with craft beer, look no further than Esser’s Cross Plains Brewery. Located in Cross Plains, Esser’s origins date back to 1852, when German immigrant George Esser settled into Madison. His love for traditional German beer inspired him to purchase 2.5 acres of land in Cross Plains—which he dedicated to starting his own brewery. The rest is history, and today, Esser’s remains one of the most popular breweries in the state thanks to its charm and unique menu. For more information, visit www.essersbest.com

The company offers 24 beers on tap, with six that are crafted especially by them. For more information, visit www.badgerstatebrewing.com
