Inventors Brewpub brought active brewing back to Port Washington – a beautiful harbor town with a brewing history dating back to 1847 – when they opened in June of 2017. Located inside the American Legion Post 82 right across from Lake Michigan, Inventors strives to be a family-friendly restaurant and watering hole with a nano-brewery located behind the bar and kitchen.
Some of the flagship beers at Inventors Brewpub include their 7 Hills Pale Ale, Edison IPA, Ozaukee Wheat, PW Golden Ale, Archimedes Amber, Witbier von Braun, Tesla’s Coil Double IPA, Reverend Reaper Scottish Ale, SS Porter, Beach Rock Extra Special Bitter, and Flughosen – a Berlinerweiss-style sour ale. They also feature a series of rotating beers to discover on each visit, primarily seasonal selections. Check out their unique Wright Flight sampling tray, too!
