The Leinenkugel family brewery was founded in Chippewa Falls, WI, in May 1867 by Jacob Leinenkugel. 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.

The leaves are turning. The wind is brisk. And suddenly the air is rich with the aroma of fall. But the season just isn’t complete without Leiniekugel’s® Autumn Explorer Pack. It’s the perfect way to fall into Autumn
Crisp wheat beer gets a little lift from an enticing blend of blackberries, elderberries and loganberries that are all indigenous to Wisconsin. Our Leinenkugel’s® Berry Weiss brings them together for a flavor that’s deliciously different and available all year long.
Our spring seasonal, Leinenkugel’s® Big Butt Doppelbock™ is inspired by the Bavarian tradition with five varieties of malted barley. It has a smooth, rich flavor and deep, dark color that stands up to those last cold days before spring. Our beer gets its name from an icon of the Bock style, the goat, and while they’re known to butt heads over disputes, we still prefer to just talk it out over a beer.
Bittersweet chocolate and coffee-like malt character blends beautiful with the subtle tartness of Door County, Wisconsin cherries to create a decadent, yet amazingly balanced Big Eddy Cherry Doppelschwarz. The result is everything an Imperial Schwarzbier should be…with a cherry on top.
Once dubbed “the purest water in the world” the Big Eddy Spring runs right through our brewery in the heart of Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin, and is where our Big Eddy Russian Imperial Stout gets its name. Brewed with a blend of robust malts, distinctive hops and notes of chocolate and toffee our stout is bold in character yet remarkably balanced.
“O’zapft is!” It is tapped, indeed. Oktoberfest, arguably the greatest festival in the world and the beer that bears its name, was born from a Bavarian royal wedding celebration. We’re paying homage to that celebration with a bolder, toastier take on an Oktoberfestbier that can only be described as “Über.” With a tawny orange hue, toasted malts and spicy hops, our Big Eddy Über-Oktoberfest is then dry-hopped for added hop complexity.
In 1906, the Kölsch-style beer originated from the Cologne region of Germany as a crisp and light beer to combat the summer heat. All Kölsch-style beers are easy-drinking and crisp, but Leinenkugel’s® Canoe Paddler® adds a touch of rye for a slightly spicy flavor and a clean, dry finish. It’s our take on a German classic that’s perfect for winding down and relaxing.
Did you know the great state of Wisconsin produces more cranberries than any state in America? Our hometown pride inspired us to brew Leinenkugel’s® Cranberry Ginger Shandy. The combination of traditional wheat beer with natural cranberry flavor and a note of ginger is as refreshing as a toboggan ride Out Here.

ABV: 4.9% Category: Craft Seasonal Availability: Year Round Beverage Type: American Style Dark Lager
Our most award-winning beer, Leinenkugel’s® Creamy Dark is brewed with a special blend of seven malts for a rich, nutty, cocoa flavor and crisp finish. That makes it one deliciously dark, surprisingly smooth brew
A traditional shandy is beer mixed with a little something extra, like lemonade, soda or ginger ale. Leinenkugel’s® Grapefruit Shandy is our take on this tradition. Each batch begins with our traditional Weiss beer. We then combine it with natural white grapefruit flavor that adds a note of fresh-cut citrus to brighten a great day by the lake.
Bring out the best of the season with our Leinenkugel’s® Harvest Patch® Shandy. It’s our traditional Weiss beer that we blend with natural pumpkin spice flavor to give you notes of nutmeg, allspice and clove for a refreshing fall seasonal. It’s crisp and smooth, just like a perfect fall day Out Here
Featuring a touch of real Wisconsin honey, Leinenkugel’s® Honey Weiss is a golden-hued American wheat beer inspired by a classic German style. It’s traditionally garnished with a lemon wedge for added citrus aroma that perfectly complements the sweet, subtle flavors of the beer.
Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.00%
Everything you love about hops comes through more clearly because IPL® is a lager instead of an ale. We brew ours with five varieties of hops including Mandarina Bavaria from Germany and Citra® from right here in the U.S. We taste citrus, tropical fruit notes and a little spicy pepper followed by a refreshing crisp finish. Give it a try and see what you discover.
The perfect beer for anyone who wants to join in the spirit of arguably the world’s greatest festival. A traditional Märzen-style beer, our Leinenkugel’s® Oktoberfest has a toasted malt flavor and subtle, spicy hop notes that make it perfect for celebrating fall in true German fashion.
A fuller-bodied brew with hints of cocoa, coffee and caramel brought out by roasted malts and aged on real vanilla, our Leinenkugel’s® Snowdrift Vanilla Porter® is smooth and creamy, making it ideal for winter
A shandy is beer mixed with a little something extra like soda, juice or ginger ale. Leinenkugel’s® Summer Shandy® is a traditional weiss beer with refreshing natural lemonade flavor that makes it perfect for the sun-splashed summer months.
Spring and summer are made for adventure. It’s the perfect time of the year to get back outside and discover something new.

Our award-winning Belgian-style witbier, Leinenkugel’s® Sunset Wheat has notes of orange and blueberry, and a tart, citrusy finish. Top it with an orange wheel to add another note to the aroma and settle in for a sunset

flavors of winter.
