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.
