Join Hinterland in Belgium

May 11, 2019 - May 19, 2019

Event Navigation

Join Michelle and Bill Tressler, Owners of Hinterland Brewery as we travel to the beer capitols of Belgium.  Bill is excited to share his love for brewing and his knowledge of beers along the way.  We’ll stay in wonderful first-class hotels in Brussels and Bruges and taste incredible beers.  You’ll tour these beautiful cities and the outlying areas known also for their scenery, Belgian lace, great food and chocolates.


Our Journey

Bill Tressler and his wife Michelle started Hinterland in an old cheese factory just outside of Green Bay, Wisconsin with nothing more than their own limited funds, sweat, passion and insanity.

In 1995, after I nearly burned down the brewery (not kidding), we decided to expand and renovate a turn-of-the-century Green Bay meat-packing warehouse into a production house—and a restaurant featuring farm-to-table culinary experiences.

Now twenty years later, Michelle and I still lead the spirit of Hinterland though a passionate and talented staff. Along the way, we’ve launched three restaurants because we believe in great ingredients and great tasting experiences. At the end of the day, we really enjoy hanging out with friends talking about killer beers and exceptional food.

We invite you to try our Hinterland beer at our affiliated restaurant, The Whistling Swan Inn and Restaurant in Fish Creek, WI. We are also more than excited to invite guests to experience our latest restaurant, located across the street from Lambeau Field in Green Bay’s Titletown District. This new location takes the pioneering, Hinterland philosophy to a whole new level. Come visit us and I’m sure you’ll agree.
