3 Sheeps Brewing Co.
Founded in April 2011, 3 Sheeps Brewing Co. is brewed with Heart & Science in Sheboygan, Wisconsin.
We have an aversion to doing things the way they’ve always been done. We prefer to set our sights on something once thought impossible, and bury ourselves in scientific process until we achieve it. We’re equal parts creativity and scientific process. Experimentation and balance. Heart & Science.
We’re equal parts heart and science. We let our hearts inform our creativity and ask big questions like, “Can we brew a beer with ghost peppers?” or “How do we make an IPA that hasn’t been done before?” Then we use meticulous research and scientific process to figure out how to make our ideas work. We like to make beers that nobody else is brewing, in ways that nobody else is brewing them, but in a way that’s so balanced, you wouldn’t have noticed if we didn’t tell you. Because we believe the best beer you can drink is one you enjoy… and that it’s even better if you didn’t see it coming.
3 Sheeps Brewing was the winner of the 2012 RateBeer Award for Best New Brewery in Wisconsin. The brewery currently distributes throughout Wisconsin and Illinois.
Somewhere in a corner of our brewery sits a very dusty case of beer — a case of beer that served as the seed that would blossom into 3 Sheeps Brewing Co. The story starts in 1926, when our founder Grant Pauly’s great-grandparents purchased a failing brewery, renamed it Kingsbury Breweries and took it nationwide. Grant never walked those floors, but his father did, and the stories Grant grew up hearing would be the initial spark in a lifelong passion for beer. Fast-forward many years later when a home brew kit, a birthday gift from Grant’s wife, would start a hobby, which turned into a passion, which turned into a dream: to open his own brewery.
At the time, Grant was pouring concrete in his family’s business and growing more and more unsatisfied every day. Working for a large corporation wasn’t for him. So when the only brewpub in town went out of business, he went to meet the new owners of the building, looked at the equipment and within a few hours had formed a hand shake agreement — Grant would open his brewery in the back and the owners would open a bar in the front. They would share the bathrooms.
A few months later, 3 Sheeps Brewing Company opened its doors. That year we won RateBeer’s Award for Best New Brewery in Wisconsin, a state overflowing with fantastic beer, and Grant knew he was on to something. Since then, he’s been joined by men and women who share his passion for creating unique, meticulously crafted beer in the heart of Wisconsin, where together we make beer we call One Off Of Normal.
Join us for a drink at the brewery. We may be biased, but we think it’s a pretty nice place to drink our beer. For one thing, it’s a stone’s throw from where the beer gets made which means you can’t find it fresher anywhere else. For another, we’re really proud of it.
We built the taproom ourselves. We made the bar, poured the concrete, forged the tasting glass holders out of old barrel staves. We even repurposed the bleachers from Sheboygan’s historic Armory building and turned them into the taproom’s tables and chairs. It was a blast.
In addition to the 17 beers we’ve got on tap, we have a variety of taproom-only offerings, a growler fill station, and regular tours of our production brewery.
