O'so Brewing Co. - Experience the Home Brew
O'so Brewery may not be as well known as New Glarus or even Central Waters, but after 3 years of brewing they are already pushing the "new-comer" status. Located in Plover, WI this brewery can be found next to Point Brew Supply.
My husband and I had the pleasure of meeting the owner, Marc Buttera; whom also was kind enough to give us a private tour of the brewery. Although their operation appears to be smaller than the average brew company, they have obviously figured out a way to distribute quality beers to their consumers. According to Buttera, the company and brewery is looking to expand to a larger location soon.
The experience of visiting O'so is unlike that you would get at Lakefront Brewery or Sprecher. The location is small and intimate. You are able to sit and enjoy a sample or pint in the brew supply store. Buttera is extremely knowledgeable in the brewing industry and appeared to know his regular customers very well.
My personal favorite is the Rusty Red, which is a classic but very smooth amber. I also sampled Night Train, which is a dark lager. Typically I do not like darker beers but the Night Train was very creamy and rich.
If you are live near or in the Fox Valley, you can try an O'so Brewing Co. beer at Bazil's Pub which is located downtown Appleton.
