Overview

As a family-owned micro distiller, we are known for our single batch whiskey. Our copper pot still is a beautiful backdrop to the Public House where our guests enjoy our Yahara Bay spirits and craft cocktails. We now serve housemade flatbreads crafted with Wisconsin artisan cheese and finished with fresh herbs. Enjoy cheeseboards as well as pairing menus and spirit flights. Live music Fridays and private events are held in our Big Room. Our Art Gallery is perfect for an intimate gathering for guests to browse local art during a special event.

Mr. Bosse - we agree! Hopefully by this summer we will be expanding our hours. In the meantime, we have introduced a cheeseboard menu and will add hand tossed pizzas and grown up grilled cheese soon. Come visit us!

We had visited Yahara Bay several times at its old location, so this was our first trip to new one. Very nicely done inside. We did not do tasting but came for Thursday night public house. Fun cocktails that showcase their liquor, but they are...More

They have really nice tours at this place and their whiskey is pricey but very good. If I had more money this would be one of my go to spirits.
