O'so Brewing

The O'so Brewing Company, 1812 Post Road, Plover, is ready to offer local residents a taste of the unusual as they begin to brew their first batch of beer. The company, founded by Marc Buttera and Bart Peterson, has one goal: brew beer differently. "I don't think anyone around here offers what I'm looking at ... we want to fill some voids,I don't want to make a regular brown ale, or pale ale. I want to do something that fits in between." The dream for Buttera started when he was in college, and a friend turned him on to home brewing, which he has been doing now for about 13 years. Four years ago, his love of home brewing led him to open the Point Brew Supply, 1816 Post Road, Plover, with his wife, Katina. "It (Point Brew Supply) has opened my eyes to all the different ingredients that I think a lot of brewers don't have exposure to," "I've played with every single strain of yeast and grain and hop in there. O'so Brewing Co. is planning to have a varied lineup of beers, with interesting names and flavors. They will have a red ale, a West Coast Pale Ale showcasing American hops, as well as a Black Cocker Bock. "I'm ready to show the world what I've learned, and I'm definitely not going to do things like other people are, but I think I'm on some sort of weird cutting edge. The brewery has a capacity to brew about 280 gallons per batch, with plans to brew twice a week. A unique aspect of their marketing technique will be in the tapper. The design, a "Big O" will be the brewery's signature. [+]
