We are passionate about brewing exceptional, award-winning, craft beers. We are West O Beer.

In West Okoboji, Iowa, we built a state-of-the-art brewery from the ground up, and opened in May, 2013. You can saunter through our doors, go right up to the bar, and order up a cold one, you know, like in those cowboy movies. When you’re in the Lakes Area, be sure to have us on your to-do list. In the meantime, have a look around and get to know us. You’ll really like our story. You’ll really, really appreciate knowing how to locate us on the map. And, of course, sign up for our awesome Beer:30 email list (because we give stuff away, randomly, including beer.)
