Back in 1867, Jacob Leinenkugel son of a German brewmaster, founded the Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Co., in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin. Here he found the essentials for brewing truly exceptional beers-spring water from the Big Eddy springs and access to the finest barley and hops. Leinenkugel's popularity has grown, but the quality remains unchanged. We still use the finest ingredients and crafted brewing methods. Today, the 5th generation of Leinenkugels take tremendous pride in the beers carrying the family name.
Indian Head Country. The Northwoods of Wisconsin have long been known as "Indian Head Country," because it was thought that the St. Croix River, which forms the western boundary between Northern Wisconsin and Minnesota, formed the profile of a Native American. It's for this reason that Jacob Leinenkugel chose the image of a Native American woman to grace the label of his first beer--to pay homage to both the local people and their home. Today we're proud to carry on that tradition of honoring the source of our rich heritage--Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin--and of brewing beer that would make Jacob proud. The Northwoods: it's an area of wooded hillsides, swift-flowing river, prosperous farm, and one very special place--Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin, home of the Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Company. Since 1867, for five generations, we've been brewing our authentic specialty beers using only the finest ingredients and the same time-honored traditions.
