Racine added another craft brewery with the opening of Littleport Brewing Company, which debuted in 2021 after four years of active preparation.
The name “Littleport” refers to both an Iowa town one of the founders hails from, and Racine’s own status as a sizable, but still smaller city, port. Owned by Mark and Chris Flynn, the brewery focuses on a variety of cream ales, Australian pales, an Imperial Helles, and even a Finnish Sahti. Their tap wall delivers 21 beers in all, some Littleport crafts and others from various craft breweries around Wisconsin. They also have a variety of sodas for guests who aren’t into beer as much as you.
Littleport updated their brewing to a 10 BBL system shortly after opening and plans to expand capacity further as they grow.
At last check, Littleport Brewing offerings include:
- Down Under Australian Ale
- Belgian Sailor Wit
- Helles A Place On Earth
- Caramel Apple Cream Ale
- Scottish Mist
- Acai Cream Ale
- Mikko Suave Sahti
- Birch Beer Soda
- As well as options from breweries like Lakefront Brewery in Milwaukee, Door County Brewing in Baileys Harbor, Potosi Brewing in Potosi, Ale Asylum in Madison, Capital Brewing in Middleton, Raised Grain Brewing in Waukesha, Vintage Brewing in Madison/Sauk City, Wisconsin Brewing Company in Verona, and Mobcraft Brewery in Milwaukee.
They also have several seltzers on tap in a variety of flavors.
For food, Littleport offers Milwaukee Pretzel Co. hot baked pretzels and stone-fired Lotsa Mozza pizzas with a variety of topping options. You are also welcome to bring your own food in, or take delivery from one of the many restaurants in downtown Racine.
