Vineyards & Breweries

La Crosse’s brewing tradition is nearly as old as the state of Wisconsin, dating back to the 1858 founding of the G. Heileman Brewing Company and the iconic Old Style brand. Since Heileman’s doors closed in 1996, City Brewing Company has taken up the standard, and today you can see the World’s Largest Six-Pack dressed up as their popular La Crosse Lager. Despite the tradition behind City Brewing, the darling of the local industry is undoubtedly Pearl Street Brewery, a craft brewery operating out of the historic La Crosse Footwear Building. Visit their tasting room to try any of their outstanding microbrews. Or if vineyards & wine better suits your palette, Lost Island Wine has more than 30 varieties, and several more vineyards in our neighboring counties or across the river in Minnesota await your visit.
