Valkyrie Brewing Company is a small family owned and operated microbrewery in Dallas, Wisconsin. Randy and Ann Lee established the brewery in 1994 when it became the first microbrewery in Northwest Wisconsin. For many years the brewery was called Viking. In 2010 we sold the Viking trademark to a brewery in Iceland and changed our name to Valkyrie - a Woman Viking Warrior.
Many people ask us, "why Dallas?" Dallas has perfect water that is so soft that we can brew any style of beer. Through the years we have brewed over 38 different beers of our own plus a large number of contract brews. We LOVE beer!
Dallas may seem like it is in the middle of nowhere, but it really isn't. It is a short jaunt from the Twin Cities and is located along a shortcut from there to Northwest Wisconsin's "Vacation land". We are only 10 miles off of Hwy 53 and 12 miles north of Hwy 64. It is a beautiful drive no matter which way travel to Dallas!
Stop by. We'd love to visit with you ! -Ann & Randy

People enjoy touring the countryside and visiting breweries and wineries. We are interested sharing our 20,000 square foot building with someone who would like to start a winery. Sharing space in the same building would be beneficial to both businesses since: the building's infrastructure is suitable for beverage industry (i.e. Loading Docks, City Water & Sewer, Tasting Room), there is ample room for both businesses; Valkyrie Brewing Co is already an established tourist destination, and both businesses share a similar customer base. This is a great opportunity for a start-up business. If interested, call: 715-837-1824.

After the battle, the Valkyries chose half of those who had fallen and carried them to a place called Valhalla, the Vikings’ version of heaven (a drinking hall) which was ruled over by the god Odin. There, the deceased warriors prepared for the great battle at the end of the world (Rognarok) while the Valkyries brought them drink.
