This Friday, 6/29, we are releasing MOTEL CITROEN, a Norwegian-inspired farmhouse ale brewed with key lime zest & lemon verbena and fermented with a Norwegian kveik strain. This bottle conditioned version of Motel Citroen is pure magic—a subtly complex combo of lemon/lime aroma/flavor and a wide array of tropical fruit notes produced from fermenting this Norwegian farmhouse strain at extremely high temperatures.Read More
Today we’re are releasing our third canned beer—WHATEVER FEELS RIGHT, our peach milkshake IPA brewed with lactose sugar.

Due to the small number of cases, these will only see limited distribution—but more will be making their way into distro soon.Read More

We are excited to announce the release of Le Printemps, our Spring seasonal saison brewed with raw Wisconsin honey and dry hopped with Huell Melon hops. Le Printemps is brewed as a reflection of the Spring season—snow melting, weather warming, green slowly returning. Expect a rustic, dry beer with notes of citrus, spice, melon, and honey.
Le Printemps was the first batch we brewed on our new 15-barrel brewhouse back in late January. This beer also represents another important milestone for both our Hacienda Beer Co. and Door County Brewing Co. brands, as this is our first beer ever bottled in Baileys Harbor.Read More
In late March, we received a shipment that we've been eagerly awaiting since announcing this Hacienda project back in February—three oak foeders from Foeder Crafters of America in St. Louis. Foeder Crafters have made foeders for a bunch of well-known sour producers in the US, including New Belgium Brewing, Side Project Brewing, The Bruery, and Trillium Brewing, among many others, and are the only producers of American foeders. Although ours are on the smaller size (7 barrels each), these oak vessels will allow us to substantially increase the production of our mixed fermentation beers. The first of these three foeders will be the home of a rye Brett saison that is currently undergoing primary fermentation with our house saison yeast strain. We can't wait to see how this first beer ages in its new home.Read More

Two weeks ago, we bottled our first beer for Hacienda—Le Printemps, our Spring seasonal saison brewed with raw Wisconsin honey and dry hopped with Huell Melon hops. Le Printemps is brewed as a reflection of the Spring season—snow melting, weather warming, green slowly returning. This rustic saison has a dry finish with notes of citrus, spice, melon, and honey.
This bottling day marked an important achievement for our team—for both Hacienda and Door County Brewing Co. Not only was this the first bottled beer under our Hacienda label, but this was also the first time we bottled a beer produced in Baileys Harbor (under either brand).Read More
In February, we shared our first beers with a handful of bars and restaurants in Milwaukee, Madison, and Appleton. With this new Hacienda venture, we have the ability to send these markets more beer produced in Baileys Harbor than ever before—this is something we're thrilled about.Read More
If you weren't able to make it to our Launch Event this past Saturday, don't worry—we have a brief recap for you here, along with photos that perfectly captured the vibe.
The beers started flowing right at 11AM. We launched our first three drafts—Vertigogo, a milk stout with espresso and cinnamon; DNT LSTN, a funky, tart Chardonnay barrel fermented saison; and Velvet Bulldozer, a double-mash imperial stout, coming in at a meager 11.5% ABV.Read More
This past Friday and Saturday, we were finally able to put our new 15-BBL brewhouse to test.

Le Printemps is brewed as a reflection of the Spring season—snow melting, weather warming, green slowly returning.Read More

This past week, our new 15-barrel brewhouse from Quality Tank Solutions in Oconomowoc, WI arrived at our Baileys Harbor brewery. It's a big upgrade from our 7-barrel system residing at the old Door County Brewing tap room down the road—it terms of both aesthetics and functionality. To start, this system will be paired with four 15-barrel fermenters, which are currently on their way to the brewery.Read More
