Named after the sound an old-school car horn makes (“Ah-oo-gah!” according to their website), the Ooga Brewing Company occupies a cool little building that once served as a car dealership just off the main drag in downtown Beaver Dam. Launched in June of 2018, they were the first craft brewery back in Beaver Dam since the 1950s.
