The Beer Barons of Milwaukee was started in 1989 by a group from the Wisconsin Vintners and others who were interested in making and enjoying beer.
The Beer Barons of Milwaukee Cooperative became a registered cooperative in the State of Wisconsin in 2008. We are an AHA registered Homebrew club, supporting homebrewing and beer enthusiasts throughout our community. We co-sponsor the Wisconsin State Fair Wine and Homebrewing Competition and are co-sponsors of other homebrew competitions such as the Blessing of the Bock. See the competition page for more information.
