Duesterbeck’s Brewing opened on October 26, 2019 on the Duesterbeck family farm along County O, north of Delavan. Calling it itself a “Premier Farmhouse Microbrewery,” it’s in the area bounded by Highways 11, 89, and U.S. 12 in Walworth County with an Elkhorn mailing address. But rest assured it’s several miles out of any actual city. Located in one of the barns on the family property that was impressively remodeled into a state-of-the-art craft brewery with a large Tap Room, Duesterbeck’s began with several signature beers and will work on more as they expand.
Signature beers at Duesterbeck’s include their Crop Duester Cream Ale; the Roosterbeck Amber Lager; Muddy Duroc Brown Ale; Oatmeal Snout Oatmeal Stout; two IPAs (Bine Bomb Traditional IPA and Bentist Candy Juicy IPA); and two weiss beers, the Bees Be Crazy Honey Weizen and Bees Be Cherry, a Cherry Weizen. You can pick flights of 4 or 6 beers in five-ounce sample glasses, do a pint (served mason jar-style), or take home a growler. Then again, you can probably drink the growler there too – but it’d be best to share.
You can get snacks at Duesterbeck’s, but they’re focusing on beer so there’s no kitchen. Food can be brought in, especially if you’re willing to share. Otherwise, there you can get good sized bags of chips – including salsas and other selections – that can pair well with their variety of beers. Seating is available at the bar and tables range from high-tops to picnic tables, including the seating outside during proper weather. This is open farmland, so it’s often windy around here!
Monday-Thursday 11am – 9pm
Friday-Saturday 11am – 10pm
Sunday 11am – 6pm
To reach Duesterbeck’s from Delavan, follow County O north from Highways 11 or 50 on Delavan’s east side. From Elkhorn, follow County H (Historic U.S. 12) to Sugar Creek Road and then head south briefly on County O right after the nearby Apple Barn Orchard & Winery. From Whitewater, follow County P to Sugar Creek Road and then head south on County O. Trust us, nobody just happens to stumble across this place – yet it was pretty busy on the random Sunday evening we stopped in!
