Rookery Brewing Company specializes in farmhouse and sour brewing, with an emphasis on how barrel-aging and environment interact in their products. Through the use of barrel aging and the addition of adjuncts, like fruit and spices, we deliver a high-quality and diverse product that will pique the interest of all beer drinkers.
We will be located in the already-existing Mobcraft Brewery and will maintain a unique monthly release schedule that will consist of different styles of beer including farmhouse beers, fruited sours, IPA’s, and Stouts. All these beers will be of the highest quality and are extremely limited in production. Rookery Brewing Company will deliver an experience of creative libations that can satisfy Milwaukee’s most creative and inspired beer drinkers but also appeal to the novice.
Our background at Rookery Brewing Company is art. We want to bring our artistic style and representation to our beers to create a unique experience. Beer is a blank canvass. It is our job as brewers to use a mix of media to create, market, and sell a cohesive piece of liquid art. We love to do this by using unique fruits, hops, and malts that enhance the beers flavor and give it a creative edge. Our beers represent how we see and experience the world, and we seek to bring these to the public.
Our IPAS are always unfiltered and bursting with flavor. Through our journey of craft IPAs we have found a true love for all variations within this style and desire to show the world our creative take on Juicy, Belgian, Bretted, Sour, and traditional West coast styles of India Pale Ales. We developed our own signature yeasts and love for fruit to help enhance the beer and make for a more unique and enjoyable drinking experience. We also love to experiment with hops and the unique flavors that different varieties add to the beer.
Through our travels, we have developed an incredible appreciation for foreign cultures and ethnicities and use that inspiration to create beers that represent specific, histories, and geographies. Our specialty beers are our canvass for creating these pieces of liquid art. Weather it is sourcing a barrel from our favorite scotch producer or getting that rare fruit from around the world, we strive to show how passion for combining unique and delicious flavors can result in a truly special beer experience.
