Sawmill Brewing Company is now Open, featuring 16 craft Wisconsin Brews!


After an extensive 2 year renovation by local artists and crafts people, Merrill’s 1940’s DNR Headquarters was transformed into a community gathering place that founder Stan Janowiak envisions as “a center of activity that spills over to the parks”.  With comfortable lounge areas, outdoor open space and an historic conference room, the Sawmill is quickly becoming a popular hang-out and the perfect venue for both public and private events. 


On-site brewing has now begun! We are using locally-sourced ingredients to create unique flavors. We also feature a variety of Wisconsin craft brews with an emphasis on brewers from Central Wisconsin. The list of brews changes daily, and the announcement of what is available has become a fun in-house event (be prepared to ooooh and ahhhh!). You can see what we’re serving by following us on Facebook and Twitter.



We offer a variety of tasty snacks which we prepare daily using fresh, locally-sourced ingredients. We also welcome you to bring any food that you wish to enjoy at the Sawmill. Feel free to bring your favorites from a local restaurant or enjoy your own home cooking!  In addition, we host a variety of Food Trucks on weekends, select weekdays, and for special Sawmill Brewery Events.  Follow us on Facebook and Twitter or visit our Events page for the latest information.
