Gathering Place Brewing Company to open next week in Riverwest

Yet another craft brewery is due to open in the Milwaukee area next week.

Gathering Place Brewing Company, located at 811 E. Vienna Ave. in the Riverworks Business Improvement District, has announced that it will host its grand opening party on Saturday, Aug. 19.

During the event, which will take place from 3 to 10 p.m., Gathering Place will open its taproom to the public, offering a first look at the 4,300-square foot facility, which features new brewing equipment from Stout Tanks & Kettles and a tasting room designed and built by Flux Design.

"We are incredibly excited to open our doors and share our beer and our story with the community," said Joe Yeado, founder and president of Gathering Place Brewing Company. "It's been a long journey to reach this point and we're thrilled this day has come."

The brewery, which is built upon a commitment to creating unique well-crafted beer and supporting the community. As a result, Gathering Place has committed to donating at least 1 percent of sales each quarter to local non-profit organizations.

Among the beer Gathering Place will debut at the grand opening are:

  • Spirited Debate IPA: four varieties of hops present an array of flavors and aromas.
  • Treffpunkt: a German golden ale that is balanced, crisp, and refreshing with a touch of hops.
  • Grüss Gott Hefeweizen: a German-style wheat beer with subtle bitterness and a spicy yeast character.
  • Prière: inspired by the table beers in Belgian monasteries, this pale ale has a unique floral aroma and fruit flavors.

"We want to challenge the palate and push people to try new flavors and beer styles," said Head Brewer Corey Blodgett. "We use the best ingredients, both locally and globally, to create unique beers that unite and inspire friendly conversation."

Additional beers will be released in the coming weeks, including a dark lager, double IPA and a Belgian-style triple fermented with Door County cherries.
