Stubborn Brothers Brewery, along Highway 22 in downtown Shawano, Wisconsin

Stubborn Brothers Brewery

Along Highway 22 in downtown Shawano, things get stubborn. Inside a former movie and playhouse constructed in 1910, Stubborn Brothers Brewery got things going in June 2020 – yes, right in the middle of the pandemic – and today they brew up over two dozen beers and ciders across a multitude of styles.

The beers at Stubborn Brothers are brewed right inside the building, a very cool former performance venue complete with the stage and the former orchestra pit intact. A large wall of windows lets you see the tanks, fermenters, and everything else in action. The bar is fairly long, with a beautiful barback. Seating is available in the airy, spacious main level and up on a mezzanine. You can even sit in the former orchestra pit; sometimes musical and other performers showcase their talents on stage.
