The O'so Brewing Company, 1812 Post Road, Plover, is ready to offer local residents a taste of the unusual as they begin to brew their first batch of beer.
The company, founded by Marc Buttera and Bart Peterson, has one goal: brew beer differently. "I don't think anyone around here offers what I'm looking at ... we want to fill some voids,I don't want to make a regular brown ale, or pale ale. I want to do something that fits in between."
The dream for Buttera started when he was in college, and a friend turned him on to home brewing, which he has been doing now for about 13 years. Four years ago, his love of home brewing led him to open the Point Brew Supply, 1816 Post Road, Plover, with his wife, Katina.
"It (Point Brew Supply) has opened my eyes to all the different ingredients that I think a lot of brewers don't have exposure to," "I've played with every single strain of yeast and grain and hop in there.
O'so Brewing Co. is planning to have a varied lineup of beers, with interesting names and flavors. They will have a red ale, a West Coast Pale Ale showcasing American hops, as well as a Black Cocker Bock.
"I'm ready to show the world what I've learned, and I'm definitely not going to do things like other people are, but I think I'm on some sort of weird cutting edge.
The brewery has a capacity to brew about 280 gallons per batch, with plans to brew twice a week. A unique aspect of their marketing technique will be in the tapper. The design, a "Big O" will be the brewery's signature.
"The local breweries have just been awesome. We have an open invitation if we need anything to call (Central Waters and Point Brewery) up," Buttera said. "Hopefully, we can fit in without encroaching and fill a void."
Quality ingredients, Old world craftsmanship. Plus a little new age thinking equals beer with attitude!
We carefully craft our world-class ales using only the finest ingredients; premium malted and roasted grains, hops, yeast, and pristine water straight from our own unique aquifer, and we never heat pasteurize or sterile filter our beers. Our tradition of carefully crafting inspired, flavorful, ales of the highest caliber has earned us a local following.
Here at O'so Brewing Company, we strive to produce consistent high quality beers. With the current market conditions of hops and malt, there maybe times that your beer tastes just a little different from the last time you had it. This is because we were forced to use a new ingredient in place of something that is not available at the time. Some of these new ingredients we have never used before. We embrace this challenge and hope to learn more about what these new malt and hop varieties can do to improve our beer. One thing is for sure, we will continue to create the highest quality beers while melding the art and science of brewing in uncharted waters. Drop us a line and let us know what you think. We would love to hear from you. Thanks Marc and Katina Butter
