Millstream Brewing Co
PO Box 284/835 48th Ave
Amana IA 52203-0284
In 1985 Millstream Brewing Co. opened its doors - the first brewery to operate
in Amana since 1884. So the Millstream Brewery was born and so it has come to be
recognized as the home of quality brews of rewarding taste.
The Story Continues in 2000 with the sale of the brewery to Chris Priebe, Aaron
Taubman, and Teresa Sly Albert. Aaron is from a biochemistry background, and so
is good at keeping the brewing yeast happy, an important part of the beer making
process. Chris is naturally handy, and keeps the "classic" bottler in tip-top
shape. Aaron and Chris are also both trained brewers from the Siebel Institute
of Brewing Technology. Teresa is an excellent people person and handles all the
sales and marketing. It takes a good team to run a good brewery!
The new owners are committed to making quality brews, one batch at a time. The
brewers introduced the Millstream German Pilsner, a beer whose hop bite is
appreciated by today's beer drinkers. They were so excited by the Pils that they
kept on creating. Research was done into traditonal german bock beers, resulting
in the Schokolade Bock, and an improved Maifest (MaiBock). Also a new Ale, Warsh
Pail ale was created to spice up the product line. And of course, the Schild
Brau Amber is still the brewery's number one beer.
