For more microbrew fun, embark on a picturesque microbrewery tour through Sauk County. Visit Moose Jaw Brewing Co. and Port Huron Brewing Company in Wisconsin Dells—you may want to stop at the Carr Valley Cheese Company store in downtown Wisconsin Dells for some locally made, award-winning cheese—and then head southwest to Wisconsin’s smallest microbrewery in downtown Reedsburg, Wis., the Corner Pub & Brewery, all within 40 minutes of the Inn.
The oldest operating tavern in Sauk County, Corner Pub brews 100 barrels of beer a year, two barrels at a time. Microbrewer Pete Johnson only serves his brews on tap and only uses American-grown hops and grains to make his ales. He further distinguishes himself from other microbreweries by using the grains from the brewing process to make whole-grain bread, which he serves in sandwiches in the restaurant. Grab some lunch to fuel you through your tour of central Sauk County.
From Reedsburg continue through the autumn-decorated rolling hills on your way back to the Inn. Take state highway 23 south to county highway W, then briefly on county highway D until it connects with county highway PF. From PF hop onto Rustic Road 21 and poke along Schara Road, Ruff Road, Orchard Drive and Slotty Road for some of the county’s most pristine and quiet landscape.
You’ll find Natural Bridge State Park along Orchard Drive where it connects to county highway C, which offers a short loop to stretch your legs, and longer trails, through the wooded hills.
As you meander the rural roads, keep your eyes peeled for signs of small farms selling apples, honey and their fall garden produce like winter squashes and pumpkins.
Travel county highway C east until it connects to U.S. highway 12, which you’ll drive north to bring you back to the Inn. Turn east on Ski Hi Road to go past Ski-Hi Fruit Farm and then through Devil’s Lake State Park’s south shore or past the north shore for the last leg of your scenic county loop.
By then you’ll be ready for our complimentary wine and cheese hour, and a rest beside the campfire.
