Central Standard Craft Distillery Expands with New Crafthouse & Kitchen
Central Standard Crafthouse & Kitchen (320 E. Clybourn St.) opened last month in the historic Wisconsin Leather Building. The 11,000 square-foot restored structure features a tasting room and a gift shop on the first floor. There is private event space and for-lease office space. Topping off the Central Standard experience is The Aviary, a striking rooftop bar and patio.

Upon entering the tasting room, leather-wrapped railings give nod to the building’s history. Deep blue upholstered chairs and benches, and stylish lighting accent the room’s exposed Cream City brick walls. To the left of the bar is a lounge and gift shop displaying Central Standard spirits and merchandise for purchase....

Beer Baron: Brewpub closes, but Next Door lives on in cans and bottles
It’s nice to have a brewery closing story with a silver lining, and that’s exactly what Next Door Brewing has delivered.

Isthmus broke the news last month that the 8-year-old Atwood Avenue brewpub would close, with a new ownership group taking over the property and operating it as Starkweather Brewing, named for the creek that runs through the neighborhood.

With Starkweather, one of Madison’s most interesting brewers lands in a permanent home. Peter Schroder, who most recently was head brewer of One Barrel Brewing, is one of four owners of Starkweather and will head up the brewing program....

Craft distillery could be coming to former West Allis industrial building, next to a brewery
A craft distillery with an events center could be coming to a former West Allis industrial building.

Kenosha-based Witico Development Corp. hopes to develop that project at a former Kearney and Trecker Co. building, 6771 W. National Ave. — next to a craft brewery that`s under development.

That’s according to documents filed with the West Allis Community Development Authority, which has been negotiating a possible sale of the city-owned property to Witico since last November...

When their farm was in decline, Elkhorn couple started Duesterbeck’s Brewing Co. `in the middle of nowhere`
As family farms drop from the Wisconsin landscape, Laura Johnson took a look at the farm where she grew up in Elkhorn.

The buildings on the 150-year-old farm were run down, no longer used. She had a vision for what the farm could offer. It wasn’t agriculture she saw as the future. It was a taproom.

Brewing beer has long been a hobby for her husband, Ben Johnson. He freely admits he spent several years in college at UW-Madison making not-so-great beer from kits.

Wisconsin`s MobCraft Beer Teams With Mexican Eatery Dee Tacko in Former Liberati Space
MobCraft Beer, an unusual Wisconsin brewery that builds its recipes based on customer votes and gained notoriety with a 2017 appearance on Shark Tank, is moving into the former Liberati Brewing space at 2403 Champa Street. The high-profile building has been empty since March 2020 when Liberati closed, leaving behind a short but delicious legacy of Italian food and beer/wine hybrids dubbed "oenobeers."

 Henry Schwartz, who co-founded MobCraft in 2013, grew up in Lakewood before his family moved to Wisconsin when he was a teenager. But with family members and friends still here, he’s been wanting to open a Denver location; in fact, he’ll partner with his cousin, Justin Weber of Highlands Ranch, on the project. "My roots are in Denver and I`ve missed Colorado ever since I moved in 2003," says Schwartz, who returns often for beer events. "I also loved the thought of being in a beer Mecca." ...
