Chippewa Falls is home to some of the best-kept secrets. One of them is the Rumble Bridge located in the north end ravine of Irvine Park. This historic bridge was constructed in two phases in the early 1900s. It was originally known as the Bridge of Pines, a name that described its scenic surroundings.
The bridge deck was designed so the boards ran diagonally along its roadway, and only the alternating ends of every board were secured. Back when vehicles were allowed to cross the bridge, the loose ends caused a unique noise. Thus, the bridge was nicknamed “Rumble Bridge”.

Imagine what life was like working in the logging camps of northern Wisconsin in the early 1900s. The work was hard and dangerous, and the days were long. Loggers like Fred might make $2.00 per week for a family of 11. Yet for all they had to endure, some loggers wouldn’t have traded the serenity and beauty of the woods for anything.
While life may be different now, it’s no less hectic. For many, the slower pace of life in the North Woods is a welcome escape. Nothing beats kicking back and taking in nature’s masterpiece after a long, busy day. After all, those moments are rare.
Slow down and celebrate life with this golden pale ale that has a light citrus aroma.
Enjoy a good beer with a little bite.

You know the type. Feisty, sassy, exquisite, enticing.
You love her and hate her at the same time. Too much of her gets you in trouble, not enough of her makes you miserable. You just can’t resist. She draws you in. She taunts you with her flaming red hair and her fireball attitude. Yet she calms you with her inner strength and regal beauty.
Go ahead. You know you want her. Everyone wants a little Ginge.
Immerse yourself in this beer’s toasted malt flavor and spice notes. A well-balanced red with an attitude.

Some of the most remarkable feats are achieved with finesse. Take horse logging, which typically involves using a team of draft horses to remove heavy logs from wooded areas. One horse typically weighs about 1,600 pounds, and can pull 8,000 pounds. That’s a lot of horsepower! Despite their size and strength, draft horses are calm, majestic and elegant.
Take a load off with this big, robust hoppy/malty IPA.
An impressive beer that packs of lot of power and has a touch of class.

Passions – we all have them. For Jim and Kurt, one of those is elk hunting. Nothing compares to being in the mountains out West and spotting the very thing you have been searching so long for. Elk are not comfortable in wide open spaces so they tend to hang out in the dark timber. This doesn’t make it easy to hunt them. But great things are not achieved easily.
From the mountains we bring you the splendor of Dark Timber. This American Stout is a little earthy and has flavors of chocolate.
Avoid the mundane. Feed your passion.

Portersville, also known as Porter’s Mills, was a logging boom town located on the Chippewa River in the late 1800s. The sawmill was owned by Northwestern Lumber Company, and at its peak it employed 500 workers. When the pine timber upriver ran out, the company moved its offices to Stanley, Wisconsin. The population eventually moved on, and the town ceased to be.
Portersville lives on in this balanced, smooth and creamy porter that you will love.
Timeless. Sophisticated. A taste that is unforgettable.
Tilden Weizen Hefeweizen
Malt Cologne, Wheat
George Meyers, a German immigrant, first set foot in the area now known as Tilden in 1847. He knew he had found the perfect spot for the first farm in the Chippewa Valley. His instinct was right - the land produced 27 consecutive years of wheat crops.
In celebration of wheat beer originating in Bavaria, Germany, Jim and Kurt are proud to bring you Tilden Weizen Bier. We salute our German ancestors and their contributions to the economic development of the Chippewa Valley.
Experience this traditional German Hefeweizen with hints of clove and banana.
The ideal beer for summer sipping.
