Gathering Place Brewing Company
A Place to Gather, Then and Now
Gathering Place Brewing Company – like the city of Milwaukee it calls home – derives its name from the native Potawatomi word minwaking, meaning “gathering place by the waters.” Over time, people from around the world have followed the example of the Native Americans to gather at the spot where three rivers join Lake Michigan, forming the present-day city of Milwaukee.
Inspired by this land, Gathering Place Brewing Company (GPBC) is the newest addition to a long and storied tradition of brewers who shaped their city as they honed their craft. Our mission is to craft vibrant and unique beers that reflect the vibrant and unique community we call home.
We're thrilled to launch our Community Supported Brewery (CSB) program! Modeled after Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) programs, you can purchase a membership and receive a set number of growlers per month which are filled in the Gathering Place tap room. In addition to fresh beer, members get a 10% discount on all purchases at the brewery and first access to special release beers and events such as beer dinners and festivals.

Kickstarter Campaign is a Big Success!!!
We launched a Kickstarter campaign to help build a walk-in cooler and the bar for the tasting room, and boy did people respond. Thanks to the generous support of 222 backers, we blew past our goal and raised more than $33,000! We are truly humbled by the outpouring of support for our brewery and we're working hard to keep up our end of the bargain and create truly unique beer for our truly unique community.
