Pabst Blue Ribbon recently underwent an ownership debacle when they were almost bought out by a Russian beverage giant, but things are looking up: the beer company will be opening a new brewery at the site of its original brewery in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
The new brewery is expected to open to the public next summer. It will feature tours, historical memorabilia, a tasting room, a beer garden, and a restaurant and bar, which will serve food and feature exclusive small-batch brews only available on-site.
Pabst was based in Milwaukee until 20 years ago, when the beer company relocated all operations to San Antonio. Eugene Kashper, chairman and CEO of Pabst Brewing Company, said in a statement:
“The launch of this brewery in Pabst’s original home represents a long-awaited return to our roots. Milwaukee is our home — the Pabst Mansion, the Pabst Theater, Pabst Farms, and this beautiful brewery complex — these are all part of Frederick Pabst’s amazing legacy, which we are honored to continue by returning to our hometown and birthplace.”
