1840 Brewing is opening an “enhanced” West Bend taproom

Bay View’s 1840 Brewing Company will open a new taproom in downtown West Bend mixed-use development called The District at Washington and Main Streets.

The 6,400-square-foot taproom is expected to open in the 177-unit luxury apartment complex by the end of the year. The District should be entirely complete by next spring.

Unlike Bay View, this one will have other aspects you might not expect, says Vetter.
