“Free Root Beer Samples ---mmmmmm!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

While at the Amana Colonies, my wife and I just had to stop at the Millstream Brewing Company. As we don't drink beer, we just had to try the root beer and cream soda, both of which were out-of-this-world. We bought a couple of the root beer and 1 of the cream soda 6 packs. They were bottling root beer while we were there. The gal behind the counter was extremely nice and friendly. My wife and I really like this shop. There is beer to be drank here for those who do indulge...lol!

“Great beer!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2014 via mobile

If you are looking for anything fancy, walk away. If you are looking for great beer in a setting that is ideal for couples and small groups, look no further.

This is a small establishment, but has a really nice outdoor seating area for all of the road weary travelers that come to Amana, IA.

It doesn't bother us to get our own beer (because it is so good!!) and the staff have always been very nice.


Prepare yourself for the early closing time though. Typically it is 6:00 pm unless they have an event. That's ok though! Grab a growler or two and walk them back to the hotel or B&B you are staying at and have a wonderful night!

“Okay I guess”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014 via mobile

Went there recently for one of their yearly events. None of the staff were very friendly and they all seemed stressed out. The catered food was good but expensive. The beer and band were decent. They serve beer only... no wine, and no food other than caterers brought in for special events. I give them points for supporting local live music since that is hard to find in these parts. The beer garden was fairly spacious and nicely landscaped but gnats and mosquitos sent us packing before the band finished. An OK way to spend a summer evening but we won't be doing it again.

“Sit back and relax!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

Visited Millstream on a beautiful Saturday afternoon in May. A group of 8 of us were able to comfortably find a place to sit and share a pint (although in plastic glasses:(. Went back later in the day and could not get near it, the line was out the door.
