Places to Explore in Algoma

Yardstick Books

317 Steele St.

Yardstick Books was established in 2019 by Heidi Raak, who owned a bookstore in Kansas for 10 years before moving to Algoma. The store carries new releases, but it specializes in translated works and books published by small presses. When you visit, keep an eye out for the store’s furry feline friend, Carrotpants, who makes an appearance from time to time.

322 Steele St.

Algoma now has a home for classic cocktails in a building that dates to 1905 and feels like a place where cocktails should be savored.

Ahnapee Brewery

202 Clark St.

The maturing brewery that originated as an offshoot of von Stiehl now boasts a second location in Suamico and a new location in Algoma. The new space maintains the old garage vibe of the original location, but it provides a little more space to spread out and enjoy the brewery’s acclaimed brews.
