The Green Bay Distillery opened in 2011 right across from the Packers’ practice facility, Ray Nitschke Field. It’s now part of the “Titletown District,” within easy walking distance of Lambeau Field, the Resch Center, Brown County Arena, and more.
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.
Green Bay Distillery is in a pretty huge building, and they host plenty of events – especially Packer game parties. Their indoor/outdoor patio room shows games and is a great place to enjoy food and drink in the nice weather months.
You’ll find Green Bay Distillery along Mike McCarthy Way, just off Oneida Street near Lambeau Field. Highways 32, I-41, and 172 are close by, and Highways 29, 54, 57, and U.S. 141 also bring you to Green Bay to check this place out and enjoy.

They specialize in apple-based wines, hard ciders made with apples and pears (known as “perrys”), and a variety of spirits.

The Door Peninsula Winery started back in 1974 in a former two-room schoolhouse built in 1868. Taking advantage of the abundant and legendary cherry orchards nearby, they started out with cherry wine. Numerous expansions since have added on more wine storage and production space, a restaurant, and finally new distillery in 2011 where gin, whiskey, brandy, and bitters are made. Cherry moonshine recently debuted, too; we have yet to try that but we’ll head there again soon!
You’ll find the Door Peninsula Winery right along Highway 42 in Carlsville, about five miles north of Sturgeon Bay.
