The Greatest Place on Earth Girls Taste Test
The Greatest Place on Earth gives the Al. Ringling Brewing Co.’s Original Recipe two thumbs up! Not only does it have a unique flavor it is easy to love and drink casually throughout your night! It has a light crisp lemon flavor similar to a shandy. Everyone was super impressed and excited for more!
Order a Mustache Flight! A fun way to sample a couple of beers and find your favorites! One of our Al. Ringling Brewing Co. favorites was the Ballyhoo. It is a Mango Wheat beer that has just the softest mango scent. Great for any time of year!
This menu is one of a kind and brings so much to Baraboo! The Al. Ringling Brewing pub’s menu offers delicious authentic empanadas, giant pretzels, beer soups and so much more! A great mix of Spanish and German options along with some classic options.
The Outdoor beer garden is the perfect spot to hangout outside with friends. Plenty of seating and even Hammerschlagen available. Hammerschlagen is a German game reportedly dating from 1940, in which several contestants try to hammer a nail into a stump. They even have an outdoor walk up window for refills and food!
