Thrasher Opera House


A vintage 1910 theater built by Charlie Thrasher to showcase vaudeville acts and (very) early movies, the Thrasher Opera House was a community hub for decades after it first opened. After being shuttered for decades, it was refurbished and once again hosts musical acts, plays, theatre and comedy performances, events, and more – though we didn’t see any actual opera on the schedule.

The charm of the original building’s inside remains, and it’s once again a hub of community activity in downtown Green Lake on Mill Street. Check their schedule of events and maybe you can catch something fun when you come through! Highways 23 and 49 bring you to Green Lake.

Muk Luks Museum


Ah, Muk Luks. The comfy, fashionable footwear originated in Princeton and gained worldwide acclaim. The Muk Luks Museum opened in 2014 with Muk Luk artifacts and a variety of styles to show. Original Muk Luks, the tools used to make them, old shipping boxes, and more adorn the small but interesting museum. And there’s plenty there to keep you warm.

The museum is open Saturdays, 11am-3pm. It’s part of Princeton’s Shops of Water Street District, just south of Highways 23 and 73.

Plymouth Brewing Company sign

Plymouth Brewing Company


Plymouth Brewing Company is a small craft brewery producing small batches of ales in their downtown location and also a facility across the street, all on Mill Street in the heart of downtown Plymouth. Established in 2013, Plymouth Brewing is a resurrection of the original Plymouth Brewing Company, which operated in the town before the era of Prohibition. Their slogan of “Unfiltered. Unpasteurized. Unsucky.” wasn’t part of the original brewery back in the day, but it is now!

Their “unfiltered, unpasteurized, unsucky” selections change regularly in their Tap Room. It usually includes anywhere from 8-10 of their own beers and selections of others from craft breweries all across Wisconsin. Their brews vary from pale ales to porters to a unique saison with blueberry, which was our personal favorite as the blueberry balance was just right.

Their Tap Room is laid back and adorned with some very classic brewery items on the walls. They don’t serve food per se but you can enjoy popcorn and pretzels or get food ordered in from the City Club, 52 Stafford, or any of the other nearby restaurants. The Dairy Heritage & Cheese Cultural Center across the street is also a great place for a grilled cheese sandwich before or after a tasting. The awesomely-named Mullet River is also within a block.

3 Sheeps Brewing Taps

3 Sheeps Brewing Company


3 Sheeps Brewing logo3 Sheeps Brewing is based in Sheboygan. It started, as may craft breweries, as a home brewing hobby by Grant Pauly. Meanwhile, along Highway 42 the Hops Haven Bar housed the Port Washington Brewing Company for several years before that brewery went under in 2012. That provided an opportunity for 3 Sheeps to open up shop in the bar, with the brewing operations in the back. They stayed there for four years before a new opportunity presented itself.

3 Sheeps won the 2012 RateBeer Award for “Best New Brewery in Wisconsin.”

Top year-round beers at 3 Sheeps include the Cashmere Hammer Nitro Stout, the First Kiss IPA, Rebel Kent Amber Ale, and their Really Cool Waterslides IPA.  Seasonal beers include Nitraberry, a tart wheat ale; the Paid Time Off, an Imperial wheat ale; Uber Joe Imperial Stout, and Happy Summer. They also brew a variety of small batch beers and ales.

3 Sheeps Tap Room

Their beers are now available across Wisconsin, the Twin Cities metro, down into central Illinois, and plenty of craft beer festivals across the Midwest, but why not try them at the source??

3 Sheeps has its brewery and Tap Room just north of its previous location. The large building hosts the brewing equipment, the full bar, and an event space. The tasting glass holders, which are really cool, were forged out of old barrel staves. Tables and chairs were repurposed from Sheboygan’s old Armory building.

You’ll find 3 Sheeps Brewery and Tap Room along North Avenue, just a few blocks east of Highway 42 (Huron Avenue.) It’s not too far north of the big intersection where Highways 23, 28, and 42 begin and end together just west of downtown Sheboygan. It’s less than 10-minute drive off I-43 and only a few minutes from downtown and Sheboygan’s beautiful lakefront and harbor area.
