Major changes brewing at Bull Falls


Bull Falls Brewery is growing big time. A multimillion dollar expansion is almost finished.

Drive down Thomas Street in Wausau and it will be hard to miss the giant silo.

"It will hold 58,000 lbs of grain," said Bull Falls Co-Owner, Mike Zamzow.

It's just one of many new additions the new bull falls brewery will have to offer.

"For us, we knew we needed to expand or do something," explained Zamzow.

Renovations began last year. When it's all said and done, the brewery will double in size, increasing production which means more beer.

"We used to brew 1,000 barrels, now we'll be producing 8,000 barrels," explained Zamzow

That's not all. Partnered with Mid-Wisconsin Beverage Company, for the first time, Bull Falls will put their beer in cans. Owners say they will sell the most popular brews in 11 Wisconsin counties.

"You'll be able to drink Bull Falls beer in the fishing boat, at the cabin, all over the place and that's something we're not able to be at right now effectively."

Bull Falls began operations six years ago. Father and son co-owners say they can't believe the progress their once little brewery has made.

"To imagine a couple years ago to think we'd be getting into a production unit like this, it's almost unbelievable," said Don Zamzow.

An official opening date has not been set. But owners say they plan to brew their first batch of beer by August and officially open the doors in September.

"You'll see a Bull Falls presence wherever you go."

Something many have been waiting for.
