Capital Brewery’s Bier Garten opened in Middleton, Wisconsin during the spring of 1986. It was originally founded to brew traditional German-style lager beers, although the portfolio has expanded since to include American-style ales, barrel-aged beers, and several distinct IPA’s. Capital Brewery is committed to sustainability; solar electric panels were installed in April of 2014, and spent grain left over from the brewing process is regularly provided to local farmers for feed cattle. The Capital Brewery Bike Club was formed in 2009 and provides a troop of bike- and beer-enthusiasts with local routes to enjoy when the weather is pleasant.
The Capital Brewery Bier Garten is open April through October and often hosts live music as well as numerous public and private events. It is known as ‘Middleton’s Backyard’ due to its close proximity to and collaboration with numerous local businesses. The Middleton Trolley makes regular stops to provide patrons with safe transportation to local hotels, restaurants, and attractions.
During winter months (approximately November through April), the indoor Bier Stube is available to the public and for private events. Tours of the facility can be scheduled via the website or purchased in person year round. Carry-in food items are welcome.
