The Art of Brewing Beer
Three Amana men decided to revive the art that had not been practiced in the Amana Colonies for years – the art of brewing beer. Carroll F. Zuber and brothers James and Dennis Roemig dreamed of building a small brewery to produce small batches of hand brewed beer reminiscent of Europe’s finest.
To brew the best they needed the best, so they called on one of America’s premier brewers, Joseph Pickett Sr., who helped in the brewery design, in the development of the beers, Millstream Lager and the robust, Schild Brau. Later, Millstream brewers, developed the zesty Millstream Wheat Beer.
