A great place for beer, pizza, wings and salads. Wood oven pizza and wings. A selection of beers brewed on premise. The owner is always friendly and checks to make sure that everything was good. Frequented by college students and families.

Stopped at Knuth's for lunch on the way to the Dells and were glad we did. Casual atmosphere - order at the counter then take your plates/silverware/napkins to your table. This is the kind of place that makes you feel good about skipping Subway and venturing off the beaten path. Good service, excellent home brewed tap beers (the brown ale... More

My wife and I were in Green Lake earlier in the evening for an event, and were looking for a place to stop for a beer and a bite to eat. In researching the options, we noticed that Knuth was actually a brewpub (we are partial to brewpubs), and decided to give it a try. We were glad we did!... More

Excellent pizza cooked in a wood fired oven. Top notch beers brewed right there. They also roast their own coffee.

We have been here a few times and the pizza is great. We wish they had domestic beer but only have their own house beer.

We discovered this fun dining spot last summer. The folks are friendly and they offer a great selection of wine, beers, pizzas and salad bowls. The pizza is cooked in a wood fired oven and the crust is great as well as the creative toppings.

We love Knuth's location and food. We love the Coulee and Cicero mixing bowl salads, which are enough to share. And Dave's Fave pizza is our favorite as well. We like they they use fresh vegetables, unlike "canned mushrooms" that another place in town serves. The atmosphere is very family friendly even with a bar in one part, which is... More

It was our first time eating here. We were impressed with the old architecture of the building. We ordered a pizza and it was excellent!! You place your order at the counter and get your own beverage (water, soda, etc.) and there is also a bar to order different beers that are made there and around Wisconsin. The menu is... More

Description
My name is David Knuth and I am the head brewer and founder of Knuth Brewing Company along with my wife Marie. My brewing roots began years ago with a homebrewing kit my father-in-law bought for me. Brewing quickly became a passion of mine, something that I truly enjoyed. Our motto is "Hand Crafted Artisan Beers". The word artisan refers to someone skilled in an applied art, or a craftsperson. Brewing is definitely an art. We may not be making paintings or sculpting a great monument, but we are creating something unique, from scratch, with our own hands for the enjoyment of all who choose to partake. All of our beers are brewed by hand in extremely small batches to ensure freshness, quality, and flavor. In addition to our brewery we also have our pub and restaurant located right in the heart of downtown Ripon in an old but newly restored building with original tin ceilings, hardwood floors, and really cool architecture. We have a real wood fired oven that we built ourselves to bake delicious artisan pizzas and we also offer fresh salads, paninis, and delicious breads and desserts baked from scratch. There is no better place to enjoy an ice cold Knuth Brew than at our custom made maple bar so thank you for visiting and enjoy the beer!
