If you’re a student or a Menomonie local, you have definitely heard about the Lucette Brewery. The Menomonie based Craft brewery is celebrating its 5th year anniversary starting Sept 30 and ending October 4.
The Lucette Brewing Company was established in 2010 by co-founders, Michael Wilson and Tim Schletty. The two were determined to create a craft beer that was high in quality and competitive in price. Wilson and Schletty chose the name Lucette in honor of Paul Bunyan’s wife and to pay respect to the roots of the Midwest lumber industry.
The Lucette brewery offers a variety of beer, such as their Ride Again pale ale, Slow Hand American stout, The Farmer’s Daughter spiced blonde ale and the Shining Dawn Belgian golden ale, to name a few.
Beer isn’t the only thing offered at the brewery; if you’re hungry they also have a wood fire eatery.
To celebrate their 5th anniversary, the brewery will hold special events the whole duration of the anniversary; including the unveiling of six, never-before-tapped beers!
A fact that sets the brewery apart is its attention to detail.
“Most breweries strive to increase capacity and their distribution footprint,” said Wilson. “We will limit both of these and focus on a variety of other interests including food, arts, and research/development.”
Genuine people brewing amazing beer and great food; that’s what you will find at the Lucette brewery.
