Chippewa Falls in Chippewa County, Wisconsin — The American Midwest (Great Lakes)
The Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Company
Here is where Jacob Leinenkugel found the essentials for brewing truly exceptional beers; pure spring water from the Big Eddy Springs and access to the finest barley and hops. For sixteen years the original partnership continued with Jacob Leinenkugel functioning as the brewer and John Miller selling the beer. Then in 1883, Miller sold his interest to Leinenkugel. A major building program was undertaken in 1890 when a new brewhouse was built. In 1898, Leinenkugel incorporated the business as the the Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Company.
Originally available to the locals, Leinenkugel's popularity has grown and is now sold in many states. Quality standards remain unchanged as Leinenkugel's still uses the finest ingredients and handcrafted brewing methods. Today, the fifth generation of Leinenkugels takes pride in the brewing of beers carrying the family name.
