About Mr Brews


Mr Brews Taphouse concept began in March 2013 in Weston, Wisconsin. Craft Beer has always been an intriguing specialty to the owner as well as the public. Research indicates that the Craft Beer franchise market is still in its infancy. Projected growth in the Craft Beer industry over the next 8-10 years indicates that the market will grow to over 16% of the total beer market, which is a 50% increase from today’s 8% market share (Bloomberg Businessweek).

Fresh Ingredients & Good Beer

Along with Craft Beer, the company took a hard look at how to best compliment this specific concept related to food. For over decades, the burger has been an American staple. Instead of average beer and burgers, our company sought out the exceptional All American Burger when starting a brewpub. Our gourmet burgers begin from Certified Hereford Beef that is hand pattied in house daily. To complement the burger, we have also worked with numerous bakeries to perfect our signature bun. To enhance the flavorful experience, it is important to offer fresh sides with our burgers. Fresh cut chips and fries are the perfect match to our juicy burgers.
