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.
