Some people on the Peninsula think they have to drive up north to get a delicious wood-fire pizza. They have no idea that Sonny’s Pizza on the waterfront in Sturgeon Bay has been creating pizzas exactly like this for years. But an even bigger surprise is to discover that Sonny’s now has their own micro-brewery …right on the ground floor.
It’s called Bridge-Up Brewing. And it’s run by Trent Snyder. Landing here was somewhat serendipitous for the former Sister Bay resident. But Trent and his wife wanted to move from Minnesota and decided that Sturgeon Bay would be a great place to raise a family. Fortunately, Trent’s long time love, passion and hobby was brewing beer. Sonny’s was looking for a Brewmaster and, as they say, the rest is history.
Nestled on the ground floor you’ll find a small room with some big tanks for making the beer and a cooler for storage. For the past year Trent has been fine-tuning some of the recipes and the results of his success can be sampled upstairs at the bar or in the restaurant. And I can tell you first-hand, they are really, really good.
