1840 Brewing Company is Milwaukee’s Urban Farmhouse Brewery. We blend classic styles with modern flavors to create truly unique products. Many of our beers are fermented or aged in oak barrels for months or even years. We are well known for making high quality IPAs, Lagers, Fruited Sours, Stouts, and many other classic and modern styles. Our motto is Drink Slow Beer. Not only because many of our products take a long time to make, but also because we put the same care and planning into crafting all of our beers, regardless of production time. Come check out our rotating selection and Drink Slow Beer!
