Originally located in Denmark WI, Green Bay Brewing moved to downtown Green Bay's "Brewery District" in 1999. More to the point, they're just three blocks from my old house, and I've downed quite a few enjoyable pints there! They changed their name in 2009.

Hinterland also operates a restaurant at 222 East Erie Street in Milwaukee WI.

Hinterland relocated to a much larger facility in 2017, located at South Ridge Road and Lombardi Avenue.

      Overall Impression (3½)
      Reddish, hazy, moderate carbonation and head. Blast of caramel malt aroma followed by a BLAST of spicy hops. Big body, richly malty, big hop flavor and bitterness. Fairly oaky, but not as oaky as the Marzenbier. Mildly warming. What will it taste like in 2002?

      Bright deep red, massive dense pinkish head. Intense perfumey raspberry aroma. Light-medium body, creamy-yet-fizzy, surprisingly mild raspberry flavor on a big malty background with a nice dose of noble hops. Despite the name, there's no "Belgian" character here - more like a good German lager with a shot of fruit.

      Bright amber-brown, thick head. Rich toasty malt aroma, with an alcoholic character. Medium-big body, lots and lots of candy-malty sweetness with hints of toast. Real nice sweet malty finish.

      Golden, very high carbonation, thick head. Smoky honey aroma. Light, malty, big wheat flavor in the finish, with the honey showing up very late.
