Bent Rail Brewpub – Westfield, WI
First up is the Bent Rail Brewpub in Westfield, WI. Bent Rail serves craft beer brewed in-house, and delicious homemade pizza. They have five brews available year-round, as well as other seasonal varieties.
At Bent Rail, you’ll find a unique, family-friendly environment, resembling an old train depot. In the summer, you can enjoy a flight on the beautiful outdoor covered patio. Alternatively, if you prefer to stay in, online ordering and delivery are available.

The AL. Ringling Brewing Co. recently opened at the end of September 2020 in downtown Baraboo, at the newly remodeled AL. Ringling Mansion.

Tumbled Rock Brewery & Kitchen – Baraboo, WI
Tumbled Rock Brewery & Kitchen opened in September 2019, in Baraboo, WI and features a large outdoor patio & full menu. Because of their proximity to Devil’s Lake, they are a great option before or after a long hike!
Tumbled Rock boasts a story behind every beer and old world food with a modern twist and full flavors. They even have some great vegan and vegetarian options. The space is open-concept with a full bar, a wood-fired oven, and a huge fireplace to cozy up to.

Gravity Box Brewing Company – Mauston, WI
Gravity Box Brewing Company is a new brewery coming soon to Mauston, WI! The last brewery in Juneau County closed in 1941, so Gravity Box is on a mission to bring a local brewery back to downtown Mauston. And it’s only a few blocks away from where the last one once stood.
It sounds like they are getting close to opening, and we can’t wait for Mauston to be home to a local brewery again!
