If ever a story were published on how Walnut River Brewing Co. began, it might be titled, “How to start a brewery on Craigslist” or on more than one occasion we’ve called it, “This Old Brewery” as if we had Norm Abram working alongside us. Of the many items purchased locally on Craigslist we found our pallet racking, an 11 foot long stainless steel sink that had been used to feed cattle (we scrubbed it, don’t worry), and our 3 inch thick 9 foot long chunk of Kansas white oak sales counter that everyone signs when they visit. Our cash register is a used iPad and the holder is homemade of walnut from Greenwood County. Even the street signs that decorate the sales area are from Kansas. Rest assured, we did pay for them! Everything unapologetically screams “Kansas” when you step into the brewery. That passion we have for our home State also drives us to use quality ingredients in our brewing. Like many Kansans we work hard and expect quality, Walnut River Brewing Company is no different. We’d like to invite you to visit 111 W. Locust Ave in El Dorado, KS and we think you’ll see and taste what we mean. Cheers!
