Point Brewery

Point Brewery


On January 28, 1971 the first beer was served on a Wisconsin State University campus (well, legally anyway) when it happened at WSU-Stevens Point. The Board of Regents for the system approved beer sales at a number of campuses, but Stevens Point was first. Of course, Point Special from Point Brewery was the first beer on tap.
Happy National Beer Can Appreciation Day! This holiday recognizes the day that beer was first sold in cans in 1935. The first canned beer was sold by Krueger Brewing on the east coast. Point Brewery didn't can their beer until 1953.

Here, Bud Konopacki of Whiting shows off his over 1500+ beer can collection in 1980.
Before Skyward began serving school districts and municipalities around the world, the company got its start working with local businesses, like Point Brewery, right here in central Wisconsin. Check out this video to learn how it all began over 40 years ago...

Stevens Point Brewery, in Stevens Point, Wisconsin, is the 5th oldest continuously operating brewery remaining in the United States. Today, the Stevens Point Brewery is proud to be Wisconsin-owned and independently operated.

The Stevens Point Brewery is steeped in a history that has transcended the trials of the Civil War, the Great Depression, and Prohibition. More than 160 years later, Wisconsin's Stevens Point Brewery continues to successfully brew quality beer, just as the brewery's founders, Frank Wahle and George Ruder, did in 1857. This undeniable endurance is a testament to why the Stevens Point Brewery is the 5th oldest continuously-operating brewery remaining in the United States.

Operating as usual
