1840 Brewing Company to open bar in West Bend

WEST BEND, Wis. — 1840 Brewing Company opens a new tavern in downtown West Bend at The District.

The district is a mixed-use development near Washington and the Main.

Construction of the building is currently underway and includes a 177-unit luxury apartment complex and 6,400 square feet of retail space. The south building and future location of the 1840 Brewing Company is expected to be completed by the end of the year. The buildings to the north will be completed in the spring of 2023.

“We explored a number of Wisconsin breweries and 1840 is the perfect match for The District,” said Tyler Hawley, principal at HKS Holdings, LLC. “1840’s award-winning craft beer, hip atmosphere and collaborative events will be an amazing addition to the development and downtown.”

This is the second dining room at 1840 Brewing. The first opened in 2017 at 342 E. Ward St. in Bay View.

“We immediately fell in love with the history of this place as the former West Bend Lithia Brewing Company and its location on the Downtown Riverwalk,” commented Kyle Vetter. “We will be very proud to continue the site’s craft brewing legacy and look forward to being part of the West Bend community.”
