First off, great beer and great food and company are the trifecta in life and Appleton Beer Factory has all of the above. First choose your beer - check, then order a serving of deep fried cheese curds with ranch dressing - check, then have...More

We used to drive up from Oshkosh to eat at ABF because we liked the food, service, and especially their Clock Out Stout. Somewhere along the line, things changed. The food quality is now inconsistent, the service is unpredictable, and it doesn't seem they brew...More

The place is well known for beer varieties. That is very true. Service is excellent. Dinner quality is just average and disappointing. Go for the beer not for the food.

You know you are in a brewery the moment you walk in off the street. The aroma of hops and grains, a line-up of sculpted tap handles behind the bar, and the stainless steel holding vats in the background welcome you immediately to a cask-side...More

We have an obvious and delicious priority - beer. Our goal is to put top-notch brew in your glass while putting you in a friendly and fun atmosphere. Appleton Beer Factory beers are crafted to deliver what is so often missing from many beers on the market today - balance. This balance was struck from passionate experimentation by knowledgeable brewers who have focused on respecting the ingredients they use and the people they serve.
