Amherst Tap Room

Welcome to Amherst!

What better way to enjoy the distinct, masterful taste of Central Waters brews than right at the source, amid sweet brewing aromas and floor-to-ceiling tanks fermenting thousands of future sips.

Check out what’s on tap today.

Indoor seating is first come, first served. Patrons who wish to drink indoors must have a table or seat at the bar. While we cannot accommodate large groups indoors, there is plenty of room in the beer garden. Service from the patio window will remain an option for those enjoying the sun.

Not in the Central Wisconsin area? We now have a Milwaukee Tap Room location.

Plan Your Visit


We do not serve food at this time. However, you are welcomed to bring food in with you. We also have a food truck here from the beginning of April through the end of October. Chef C’s Munchie Mobile is always a hit and serves a variety of appetizers. Visit them on Facebook for menu options. We do have a variety of flavored popcorn and peanuts for sale.

Do you take reservations?

Unfortunately, we do not. Looking for a spot for a group? We have a room that is attached to our taproom available for rent. We require a non-refundable deposit of $200 to reserve the room, and $168 of the deposit is credited toward your drink bill. We do not provide wait staff or food but you are welcomed to have catering brought in. Our room accommodates about 50 people. Please call the brewery at 715-824-2739 for more information.

Bring the family!

Our facility is family friendly. Anyone under 21 is welcomed at the brewery and on our tour if they are accompanied by a parent or a legal guardian. However it is our policy to only serve alcohol to people if they are 21 or over. Our taproom is not pet-friendly but you are welcome to have your pet accompany you in the outdoor beer garden.

Beer not your thing?

Aside from the products featured on our tap list, we do offer a variety of wines and organic sodas. We also have Point Root Beer and Crispin Hard Cider on draft.
