He has not been able to make beer for a few months, but Bridge Up Brewing’s Trent Snyder is still smiling about the future of the venture. His brewing tanks have been disconnected while a large portion of the basement at Sonny’s Italian Kitchen in Sturgeon Bay gets transformed into Bridge Up Brewing’s new taproom. Visitors will still be able to enjoy a pint while watching ships float past on the water or during Snyder’s final touches on his next brew recipe. He never imagined how fast Bridge Up Brewing would grow in the year-plus since Jason Estes hired him as the head brewmaster, but Snyder is excited about what is ahead.
It is not just the taproom that is growing for Bridge Up Brewing in the near future. After Snyder gets to work at a contract brewery next week, Bridge Up Brewing is teaming up with Flanigan Distributing to make its three top-selling beers available throughout Door and Kewaunee counties in kegs and 12-ounce cans. You can see a video update of the taproom ahead of its late spring opening online with this story.
