Midwest Brewery, Pizza, Farm and Wedding Venue ( $879,000 )Hot
Once in a lifetime property!!
Here is your opportunity to live and work your dream! You could be the proprietor of your own brewery that serves wood fired pizza and an award-winning rustic wedding venue. The property sits across the Minnesota border in the lush Western Wisconsin landscape, a mere 65 miles outside the Twin Cities of Minneapolis & St.Paul. A scenic 1 hour and 15 minute drive later, from the MSP airport, you’ll find yourself in the peaceful countryside.
Located in a valley, on a dead end road, you will own approximately 105 acres, complete with a 15 acre private pond in your front yard. In addition to the three businesses there are two homes with outbuildings and 3 cabins.
The first home sits on 37 acres. It is a 5 bedroom 1.5 bath house with two large pole buildings, one is 30 x 40 and the other is approximately 40 x 50, complete with a 20 x 40 woodworking shop. There is a small rustic cabin that sits across the pond, up in the woods; a short walk or utv ride away- very private as well.
The second home is the remodeled lower level of a big red Wisconsin style barn on 24.5 acres. Built in 1930, the barn offers a spectacular rock foundation with 1 bedroom + office and 1 bath and features an open concept floor plan. It has in-floor radiant heating with a wood burning stove, in addition to a full HVAC system. The upstairs is still the old red barn in very good condition. The possibilities are endless as far as turning it into your dream home. There is a 40 x 60 pole building/garage, steps away from the barn, half of which is a spray foamed 30 x 40 heated shop.
The wedding venue has hosted 120 couples since opening in 2013. Seating is provided for 200+ guests, with handcrafted tables and a 20’ bar made from reclaimed lumber. The venue has two custom bridal suites, which are repurposed metal grain bins, spray foamed and climate controlled. Sharing the same sidewalk is a 3 bathroom structure, one of which has a shower. There is a complete cold kitchen in a grain bin adjacent to the wedding pavilion for catering; outfitted with a 3 door cooler, stainless tables and a stainless 2 bowl sink. The pavilion is 42’ x 80’ with a 16’ covered porch.
The pizza experience we provide has been featured in several publications, including the Chicago Tribune, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Star Tribune and Pioneer Press. The pizza kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need to make the best wood fired pizza around! It is complete with a 20qt mixer, utensils, stainless tables and 3 bowl sink, 3 stainless refrigerators, a soda cooler, and vintage decor. The dining room features a stunning pond view with multiple authentic chrome dining sets from the 50’s and 60’s. Countless times our guests have said, “my grandma had the same table at her house!” There are two wood fired pizza ovens housed in a grain bin, one custom built with field stone from the neighbor’s farm and the other a top-of-the-line Valoriani.
The 4,860 sq. ft. brewery was completed in 2017. It is a pickers’ paradise! Once you walk in you cannot take your eyes away from the signage and rustic decor. There is radiant in-floor heating in the taproom. It contains a 3BBL home grown system that includes kegs, keg washer, 4- 3 bbl fermenters, a 3 bbl brite tank which is very user friendly and produces great beer, along with a walk-in cooler and fermentation room. Walk-in cooler has taps leading directly through the wall to the backside of the taproom bar, eliminating the need for a separate draft system. The brewery also has 2 bathrooms- one with a ceiling you have to see in person! There are ample unique seating options, both inside the brewery and on the covered 18’ x 90’ stamped concrete front porch.
But wait, there’s more! Directly behind the businesses you will discover the Back 40, complete with two cabins, full electricity, quonset, shooting range and trails, all of which overlook gorgeous wetland with an abundance of wildlife: beaver, trumpeter swans, deer, bald eagles, sandhill cranes, and more. This property abuts 80 acres of DNR hunting and fishing land.
This will be a complete turnkey sale that includes FF&E, branding, logos, merchandise, social media, lawn care equipment, including John Deere zero turn mower, John Deere tractor with backhoe attachment, 2 Toro workmans and a four wheeler along with chainsaws and wood splitter. This will be the most comprehensive package you will ever find to start your new way of life and you can jump right into running your new businesses.
In addition to what has already been successfully established, there are countless opportunities for growth. Potential ideas include, but are not limited to: camping, farmers’ market, CSA (there is a 5 acre field ready to plant), multi-generational family living, retreats, hop field, airbnb, beer distribution…the list goes on! Currently, all three businesses operate seasonally, from June through October. The brewery and pizza businesses are open only on Sundays, with weddings held on Fridays/Saturdays. You can continue with this laidback business model and have your winters off or you can expand your vision and schedule for an even greater financial return.
2020 is a year we will never forget. Despite the concerns of COVID 19, the wood fired pizza restaurant and brewery have been able to safely open this month with outdoor and undercover seating. It has provided a safe and relaxing setting for our guests to enjoy the summer with their families and friends. So far, we are on track to have our busiest season to date!
That being said, we’ve decided to put things in motion now in order to give you a chance to visit us while we’re in operation. Should this be your destiny, we would be more than willing and wanting to have you get the lay of the land and swing of things with us by your side. Nothing would make us happier than for this to be as smooth (and enjoyable!) of a transition as possible for you.
Remember, you are not only buying a great brewery, Midwest pizza farm, and rustic wedding venue, you are investing in your new lifestyle! You can live where you will provide an atmosphere for the community to eat, drink & be married!
This could be the ideal option for 2 brewing families/couples to team up on and be able to walk to work!
