About Us

Born on Lake Superior

Founded in the picturesque town of Ashland, Wisconsin, in 2023, Ashland Beer Works is a craft brewery that has become a beloved icon in the local brewing scene. The founders, Mary and John Anderson, shared a deep passion for the art of brewing and a vision to create exceptional beers that would capture the essence of the town's rich history and natural beauty. Inspired by the pristine shores of Lake Superior and the lush forests that surround Ashland, Mary and John set out to craft beers that celebrated the region's unique flavors and traditions. They believed in using only the finest, locally-sourced ingredients, paying homage to the community that had embraced their venture from the start. With unwavering dedication and a commitment to perfection, Ashland Beer Works quickly gained a loyal following. Their flagship brew, "Superior Ale," is renowned for its smooth, balanced profile that mirrored the tranquility of Lake Superior itself. Ashland Beer Works expanded its offerings to include a diverse range of styles, each inspired by the natural wonders and history of the area. From the refreshing "Northwoods Wheat" to the robust "Ore Dock Stout," each beer brewed by Ashland Beer Works tells a unique story.
