Door Artisan Cheese Brings Home First Place

Perfect Beer for the Perfect Night

Far north on the Door peninsula, away from the bustle, you’ll find Newport State Park: Wisconsin’s only designated International Dark-Sky Park. There the skies are so dark that the Milky Way looms bright, and occasionally the northern lights come out to play. 

Inspired by this quiet place of wonder, Door County Brewing Co. has created Dark Skies Dark Lager, brewed with a selection of dark malts to provide notes of freshly roasted coffee, dark chocolate and crusty bread. It’s hopped with classic Czech Saaz and fermented with a crisp, clean German lager yeast strain.

Dark Skies Dark Lager will be released in cans and on draft Sept. 3 at the Door County Brewing Co. taproom, 8099 Hwy 57 in Baileys Harbor.
