Capital Brewery was founded in 1984, and brewed their first batch of beer, a pilsner, in the spring of 1986 and was founded to brew traditional German style lager beer in America. It has branched out to include American style ales, barrel aged beers, and several distinct IPA’s. Capital Amber (the largest seller) has been available in cans since 1999.
Capital is committed to sustainability and installed solar electric panels in April of 2014. Spent grain is provided to feed cattle raised by an area farmer. The Capital Brewery Bike Club was formed in 2009 and now over 100 riders meet regularly at the Brewery every Tuesday and Thursday when the weather is pleasant.
La Crosse Beverage is excited to take on the responsibility for bringing Capital's beer into the La Crosse area.
In November of 2015, Ron Bores and Nick Muller were awarded the “Patriot Award” through being nominated by Nathan Schuelke, a former driver for La Crosse Beverage. We are very proud to acknowledge these two distinguished employees. Ron Bores, Operations Manager, and Nick Muller, Driver Supervisor, for their contribution and efforts in assisting military personal working at La Crosse Beverage. These outstanding role models have been recognized not only by their peers but fellow employees for their hard work and dedication in accommodating the needs of Citizen Soldiers in their Guard or Reserve duties with the United States Armed Forces.
The “Patriot Award” is a reflection of the efforts made by employers to support Citizen Warriors through various measures. In this particular case, Nick being a veteran of the United States Air Force Reserve (8 years), was able to accommodate to Nathans military training, combat reading exercises, and requirements for updating possible deployment essentials shortly after being hired. Ron, acting as the Operations Manager was able to make certain that Nathan would be able to adhere to the demands from both the State and Federal Government. Ron and Nick both have continued to provide outstanding patriotic support and cooperation with their employees. We congratulate you both on receiving the “Patriot Award”!
