“Dirt floor, holes for windows and doors …It was love at first sight.”

So says Deb Donaghue, of her first visits to what would become Brewery Creek Inn in Mineral Point. The three-story limestone warehouse that dates back to the 1850s is now a 7-guestroom B&B with rustic exposed stone walls and pampering whirlpool tubs. Travel writer Brian E Clark reports: “I pedaled my bike nearly 50 miles from Madison to Mineral Point — through numerous rain showers — to get there and was more than a bit mud- and rain-splattered upon my arrival. But it was more than worth the effort.” You’ll want to explore Mineral Point’s artsy shops – and be back at the inn’s brewpub for, well, the brews and dinner. Read the full story at jsonline

Origin unknown, the ornate bar is right at home in the Brewery Creek Inn.  Brewmaster Jeff churns out European beer styles such as biere de garde, Scottish porter, and dunkelweiss. Cheers!

Theatre in the Open

Wednesday, August 8th, 2012

You’ve heard of theatre in the round.  How about theatre in the forest.  Or in a tent.  Or on a lakeshore.  In Spring Green, the American Players Theatre is world renowned for its classical theatre performed under the stars in an amphitheater on a hill with trees all around.  In Door County, the Peninsula Players is America’s oldest professional resident summer theater, and there’s also American Folklore Theatre with musicals that are often Wisconsin-themed, and Door Shakespeare which stages its performances in a garden.  Lake Superior’s Big Top Chautauqua, Bayfield,  has a full summer season of plays and concerts and, yes, they are performed under a big tent.  In Mineral Point, there’s Alley Stage, and in Milwaukee the Peck Pavillion on the lakeshore has lots of free events.  Get outside, take a seat, enjoy the show, and then return to the B&B of your choice, knowing our member inns are also famous for receiving rave reviews.   

 

Mineral Point is known for its artist’s community and artisan shops … just a short stroll from Brewery Creek. As its name implies, Brewery Creek is more than an historic inn – it’s a brew pub, and restaurant known for a locally sourced menu.
