In 1845 Jacob Leinenkugel immigrated from Meckenheim, Germany, with his parents and two brothers to Wisconsin. Its rich soil was perfect for growing hops and grains and when he got older Jacob opened his own brewery in the logging town of Chippewa Falls. A family man driven by an iron work ethic, Jacob knew that his family heritage would play an integral part of his brewery's success. Today, the fifth generation of Leinenkugel's continue to brew the same family inspired recipes that Jacob poured his heart and soul into. Over the years, the family has grown and so has the brewery, but its history and heritage remain at the forefront.

Moosehead Brewing Company

The Moosehead saga began in 1867, when Susannah Oland first brewed a solitary batch of brown October ale in her backyard in Nova Scotia. Encouraged by the welcome reception her beer received from friends and family members, she and her husband founded a brewery. The same Oland family still operaters the brewery today, Moosehead Breweries has occupied its current building in Saint John, New Brunswick, since it bought Ready’s Brewery in 1928. This building was coincidentally built in 1867, the same year Susannah Oland began brewing beer. Moosehead Breweries brews, packages and kegs all of its products from this building, that also serves as the head office for administrative staff and production.
