The Green Bay Distillery opened in 2011 right across from the Packers’ practice facilities, Ray Nitschke Field and the Don Hutson Center. It’s now part of the “Titletown District,” within easy walking distance of Lambeau Field, the Resch Center, and more. It’s a big, family-friendly place that features a restaurant, games for kids and adults alike, and plenty of room to move around. If loading up on carbs is your bag, try “Green Bay’s Largest Beer Pretzel,” which weighs in at a pound and a half, is brushed with Wisconsin lager beer, and comes with three sauces. At the other extreme, they pretty darn good salads, too.
The Distillery started as a restaurant with specialty vodkas, Green Bay Classic and Green Bay Cherry, with cherries from nearby Door County. They have since expanded into gins and whiskies as well as vodkas with lime and grape flavors, great for mixers and their menu of cocktails and martinis. The bars also stock a wide variety of other spirits, wines, and beers, including a nice variety of Wisconsin craft beers from the Green Bay area and beyond.
Green Bay Distillery is in a pretty huge building, and they host plenty of events – especially Packer game parties. Their Banquet Room alone covers 8,000 square feet and features sky-high ceilings, antique wooden wall art, a private bar, and a large stage with a 20-foot drop-down projection screen. So yeah, you can get a good look at the games. Their indoor/outdoor patio room also shows the games on massive TVs. It’s a great place to enjoy food and drink in the nice weather months.
You’ll find Green Bay Distillery along Mike McCarthy Way (even though he coaches for the Cowboys now, they’re keeping the name), just off Oneida Street near Lambeau Field. Highways 32, I-41, and 172 are close by, and Highways 29, 54, 57, U.S. 141, and I-43 also bring you to Green Bay.
