Fox River Brewing Company
Dating back to 1846, the city of Oshkosh has deep roots in brewing fine beers http://oshkoshbeertimeline.blogspot.com/. Fox River Brewing Company opened on the Fox River in Oshkosh, late 1995. Under the name of Fratellos (meaning brothers) and Fox River Brewing Co., the Supple Brothers, long-standing restaurateurs, dove into the brewing industry.
