OUR STORY

We are a family owned and family run microbrewery operation located in the heart of Brookfield, Wisconsin. We focus on crafting unique beers using the simplest and purest ingredients. We also strive to be strongly rooted in our community. It is our intention to do both exceptionally well!

Biloba Brewing has been a long-time dream for husband-wife team Gordon and Jean Lane. Gordon recently retired from Briess Malting Company in Chilton, Wisconsin, has been passionate about brewing since the 70's, and has finally seen his dream of opening a brewery come to fruition! 

 

Jean, owner of Biloba Brewing, is the true backbone of the company and brings her creativity, friendly personality and great customer service to the tasting room and microbrewery.  Daughters, Kathryn Glomski, and Kristen Giljohann also play critical roles. And lastly is Patrick, our hard working, friendly, do-it-all guy!

Gordon and Jean have lived in Brookfield for 24 years, and both previously lived nearby for 20-plus years. Aside from having a short commute to work, they wanted to offer the community they care so much about a unique place where people can get to know their neighbors.
