An exceptionally light-colored beer fermented at slightly lower than normal ale temperatures to produce a lighter drinking, smooth and crisp beer. It’s not a light beer, but rather light-bodied ale with a slight hop nose.
A light-hopped version of the world's favorite beer style. Who would have thought that a hitchhiking yeast from Patagonia would create the world's most widely consumed beer?
A true hop head beer! This hoppy IPA is bittered by generous portions of Equinox and Mosaic hops, finished with Equinox in the kettle and dry-hopped with Mosaic.
What the Russian royalty drink when the Vodka runs out! Full-bodied, intense alcohol, roast, chocolate, and coffee tones all balanced out by 67 IBUs of Fuggle and Northern Brewer hops.
South German-style wheat beer produced with German grains, hops, and Weinstephan yeast. Expect a effervescent beer with a hazy or cloudy appearance due to suspended yeast and wheat protein.
Named for the Scottish explorer, this ale is deep amber in color, with roast caramel character, and a warming alcohol presence. This big, charismatic Scotch Ale will cure what ails you.
Sir David Livingstone needed a porter for his many adventures. This roasty, full-bodied Imperial Porter is brewed with easy quaffing in mind with hints of smoke on the finish.

Established by Mike and Joan Doble in 2016, The Explorium Brewpub brings together friendly service, tasty house-made beer, and great food at a reasonable price. The Doble family has a long history in brewing and brewpubs, with four breweries and restaurants in three states. Drawing from the best of the original Doble family brewery, Tampa Bay Brewing Company in Ybor City, FL, Mike and Joan offer small batch, hand-crafted beer and a menu with lots of flavor from our Wisconsin home.
The goal of The Explorium Brewpub is to have a broad offering of beer styles and flavors that appeal to a wide range of palates. Our brewers pride themselves in producing beers that appeal to the craft beer enthusiast, but also the beer drinker who may not have explored the flavors of craft beer.
We love to educate those who are unfamiliar with hand-crafted beer.
