Burlington becomes “Beerlington” when you walk into Low Daily Brewing Company, a microbrewery that opened in 2019 in a former electric railway terminal. Low Daily was started by Tim Sullivan, a Burlington native who cut his chops in San Diego and Portland, Oregon before boomeranging back home to bolster Burlington’s craft brewing scene, which only got going again in 2020 with the establishment of the single-room Runaway Micropub and Nanobrewery on nearby Chestnut Street.
The building itself was the terminal of an interurban railway that connected to Milwaukee in the 19th century. Today, a major freight rail line still roars behind the building in downtown Burlington, which hosts the brewery, a large Tap Room with a blend of high top tables and comfy sofas around tables and TVs as well as an outdoor beer garden out back with Adirondack chairs, fire pit tables, and a stage for live music.
Beers brewed at Low Daily (as of our last visit) include:
- Banjo, a Kolsch
- Antler, a Festbier
- Plum Expert, a Blueberry Lager
- Lounge Hours, an Orange Sour
- Cowboy Cowboy, a Hazy IPA
- Vector Stuff, a West Coast IPA
- Some Summers, a Farmhouse Ale
- Slow Prime, an English Pale Ale
- Splash City, a Sour with guava, pineapple, and coconut
- Just, a Stout with a very short name
Low Daily also makes a seltzer called Hard Water, with two flavor options – all comprising of a variety of berries.
Food options at Low Daily include DIY snack boards, where you select from a variety of cheeses, curds, spreads, breads, and crackers. You can also get Charcuterie (essentially the same thing, right?) that bring in sausages, olives, nuts, chips, salsa, and an almond dip.
You’ll find Low Daily in downtown Burlington on Pine Street. This convenient, walkable location is within 2-3 blocks of the Logic Puzzle Museum, the Spinning Top & Yo-Yo Museum, Fred’s famous burger bar, and local favorite Adriana’s Frozen Custard. Pine Street is the original Highway 11 through Burlington; Business (read: original) Highways 36 and 83 are a block away on Milwaukee Avenue; and Highway 142 originally came in from the southeast (including Kenosha and the famously-named Bong Recreation Area) before it was ended at the bypass, but 142 is another way into town. Essentially, almost all streets point you to this area! The Fox River and Echo Lake are also within a block or two. It’s a great downtown location!
