Knuth brewing company is worth the drive from anywhere in central Wisconsin. They have an amazing array of outstanding beers brewed in house, and great food, as well.

We were in town visiting Ripon College and decided to grab a bite at Knuth. It was a great wood-fired pizza. We will definitely visit again when we are in the area. We may even make a special trip.

Been here twice over the last few months. Interesting beer choices and, on the second go round, we found a pizza we liked that was prepared well with ample toppings. The Prosciutto Blue Fungi. Aaron definitely made our second visit worth us trying Knuth’s again....More

This restaurant is a gem for an individual, couple, or family to try something different than a chain restaurant. Their wide variety of handcrafted beer is perfect for all pallets, and their pizza is some of the best around!

Had a brick oven pizza and beer for late lunch. Grest atmosphere, good food ( as has been the case since it was called Fat Bruce's) and super friendly staff. This is a " must visit" in Ripon.

The atmosphere and "vib" of this restaurant is very cool. The food is limited and average at best. Hang out here and drink, then head to the BBQ joint down the road to eat

Description
My name is David Knuth and I am the head brewer and founder of Knuth Brewing Company along with my wife Marie. My brewing roots began years ago with a homebrewing kit my father-in-law bought for me. Brewing quickly became a passion of mine, something that I truly enjoyed. Our motto is "Hand Crafted Artisan Beers". The word artisan refers to someone skilled in an applied art, or a craftsperson. Brewing is definitely an art. We may not be making paintings or sculpting a great monument, but we are creating something unique, from scratch, with our own hands for the enjoyment of all who choose to partake. All of our beers are brewed by hand in extremely small batches to ensure freshness, quality, and flavor. In addition to our brewery we also have our pub and restaurant located right in the heart of downtown Ripon in an old but newly restored building with original tin ceilings, hardwood floors, and really cool architecture. We have a real wood fired oven that we built ourselves to bake delicious artisan pizzas and we also offer fresh salads, paninis, and delicious breads and desserts baked from scratch. There is no better place to enjoy an ice cold Knuth Brew than at our custom made maple bar so thank you for visiting and enjoy the beer!
