5th and Final Commemorative Glass

The 5th and Final Commemorative Glass in the original River Time series will go on sale August 31, 2019. This glass commemorates the life of our recently fallen Founder, Darren Huether – #73.

One of Darren’s passions was racing, and it is fitting that the 5th and Final word is “Pace”. We will all catch up with you some day Darren; until then, we will keep you in our hearts.

Proceeds from the sale of these glasses will go to Paisley, the daughter of Darren and our amazing Madison.

Founder’s & Mug Club Party 2019

It was great to see so many of our Founders and Mug Club members out at the old brewery location for this year’s party!

DSC07813Members and their guest enjoyed some great River Time Beer, and amazing food prepared by Kristin – including a smoked beef brisket and homemade ice cream sandwiches!

Members enjoyed each other’s company and talked about this year’s brewery happenings – especially the recent changes and the private reveal of this year’s last-in-the-set commemorative glass.

Enjoy some more photos of the party, and enquire at the brewery about becoming a Mug Club member to participate next year…

4 years in town!

River Time has officially been open 4 years in the town location. Though we still love being out on the river enjoying a beer, we are so happy to have space to keep 9-10 of our beers on tap for you, and serve you delicious food!

Enjoy this picture from the Mighty Sauk, and have a safe 4th of July!

P.S.: Limited amounts of River Time magnets and our throwback shirts are available right now ๐Ÿ™‚

Gingerbread Houses – Dec 15, 2018

It’s that wonderful time of year again when Shawna Jean makes gingerbread houses for you all! Bring your family to the brewery between 1:00-3:00 on December 15 (2018) to make a gingerbread house with us!

Due to the large response last year, we are changing things up slightly to ensure we have enough houses on hand. This year you will need to purchase a refundable gingerbread house reservation for $5 per house.

When you show up at the brewery you can use that $5 towards anything at the brewery, or request a refund. There still will be no cost for the gingerbread house making. The $5 helps us ensure we make enough houses and reserve them for those who reserve ahead.

Purchase one $5 reservation per house you want to build:


Again, this is fully refundable in person from 1:00-3:00 on December 15 (show up, get your refund, or spend it). If you don’t show up, Shawna will use the $5 for a latte at Mountain Loop Books ๐Ÿ™‚

If you have questions, let us know. We look forward to seeing you on the 15th!

You have a Choice

Beer is big business around the world. With Budweiser being a Belgian-owned company attempting to trick you into believing it represents the USA, and now a new Guinness brewery on the east coast, it can be difficult to tell where you money is going.

What you can be certain of is that seeing the Independent Craft Beer seal on a product means that the beer is made HERE in the USA, by an Independent company owned HERE in the USA.

Look for the seal, and support beer made here, by people who live here. You have over 6000 Independent Breweries to choose from, and River Time is one of them.

One thing we are in agreement with is what Guinness says on their web site:

“The U.S. is the worldโ€™s epicenter of beer innovation. American brewers excel at re-interpreting traditional styles and creating new ones. “

2018 Commemorative Glass!

The 2018 Commemorative Glass (4th in the series) will be available for sale, beginning Friday, August 31st! As the name states, it is “appropriate” that it is a Mason jar!

Even if you haven’t been collecting the series, this is one worth having around for your favorite beverage! Straying from the rest of the series and our standard glasses, this one is laser etched to allow the artwork to stretch completely around the glassware. This gives a unique ‘sparkle’ effect to the words and logo.

River Time – always Beer At An Appropriate Pace!
