Hinterland might be the only place worth visiting in Green Bay for beer aside from Titletown Brewery across the street. The establishment is housed in a rehabbed warehouse building with all the original concrete exposed, and minimal interventions of ducts and lighting throughout. The overall atmosphere is filled with the aroma of the fireplace on the first floor, which would be the only coplaint about the surroundings. overall it carries a quiet dignity.

The prices are among the highest in town, but the food is quite good and the beer is solid. It is somewhat of an anomaly in that sense, with the general lack of upscale fine dining establishments in and around the city.

The quality is good. the beers are served in clean glassware, though not always the correct style, but the bartenders seem to know quite a bit about brewing, and seem to be glad when patrons share their level of knowledge.

service is great; prompt and friendly.

selection is decent. around eight to ten taps, all from Hinterland, with a fairly diverse set of styles. there are four or five flagship brews, with a couple seasonals thrown in. apparently the seasonals are rotated whenever the previous brew runs out, so it is a bit sporadic.

food is great, albeit a bit pricey when considering the context of Green Bay. when put in line with a market like Chicago, it fits right in.

overall this is a solid stop for those passing through town en-route to Door County or anywhere else. It seems like the local crowd avoids the place (from what this BA hears) because of the prices. The good news is Titletown Brewery is literally across the street, and the two sum up the brewpub population of Green Bay.

In town for a short time and stopped at Hinterland for dinner/beer. Had an IPA which was very smooth with a nice hoppiness. The Baltic Porter was quite a treat. It was $3 taco night and the Mahi tacos were excellent for the Midwest. I'll probably go back tomorrow to try more beers. Sat at the bar and service was fine. Menu kind of high-end but if the tacos are any judge, probably well worth it.

Nice selection of beers. The smell of smoke in the air from the wood fired grill permeates the restaurant. Can't wait for the duck wings

This is the best place for food and great beer in the city. I stop here every time I am in town. They make some of the best beer. The food is great and the beer is exceptional. I have been to several breweries around the country and they make some of the best beer.

I was on one of semi-regular business trips to Green Bay and asked my customer where he wanted to meet for dinner. Last time he suggested Title Town and this time he suggested Hinterland. You got to like customers like that!

Hinterland sits kiddy corner from Title Town and is very close to the river. You enter through the doors off the parking lot and not the main street entrance (that appears to be the brewery entrance).

There is a small bar to the left of the entry. Lots of brick and exposed duct work.

I think this place was an old cheese factory and its industrial roots show but they have been given a fancy gloss.

They had 8 house beers on tap and a few macro bottles (including PBR!).

The amber I had was solid and to style. I really liked and can recommend their IPA as I had several.

The food is definitely on the fancy and pricy side of the equation. My “porterhouse” pork chop was $38 but it was really good. Try the fried goat cheese curds for an interesting variation on a Wisconsin staple.

Service attentive and beer savvy.

Well worth a stop, glad I was on the expense account!

Another stop on our Green Bay tour.

I've always been curious to see what the parent location would be like compared to our brewpub location on Milwaukee. Well it's just as pretentious for sure. I simply can't get into a brewpub that comes off like it's trying too hard to class itself up. When your main attraction is beer I feel you should cater to a more casual atmosphere. Just my opinion. White table cloths and low lighting do nothing for me when looking to enjoy a few pints of beer.

The service was pleasant and the beers were good as always. I've had pretty much all the Hinterland stuff so i wasn't terribly shocked by anything on the menu. We didn't order any food but I've eaten at the Milwaukee location several times and the food is fantastic.

If you are looking to impress someone or are interested in an upscale dining experience this is your place. If you're like me you would be better served across the street.

The atmosphere is a little upscale and yuppie. It is odd because on one hand it has some gorgeous natural stuff that is like entering an art gallery, on the other hand it is a little cold and sometimes hard to find out what's going on.

There's a downstairs bar and upstairs bar. If you're a beer fan go to the upstairs bar. Otherwise if you are at the downstairs one and you want a sample you have to run up to get it.

They have some great food items. I like their wood fired pizza and creme brule and their shredded pork tacos are to die for. (they have coleslaw in them)

The beers they have are mostly good, especially the winterland and the maple bock (like dark chocolate and chocolate respectively), in fact I like both of these beers in ice cream (hint, hint)

If you're young and want to impress your date this is the place to go, especially if your date wants wine or a fancy martini instead of beer. You get the beer you like, they get their fancy shmancy drink.

IPA wasn't as much to my like but as long as they don't take the other two beers off the menu I am happy.

Stopped here on a whim in October after many tastings at events. Had a feel of a supper club type place, and service was excellent. Of the beers I had, the Oktoberfest was very good... probably the best I have had of that style although not my favorite style. Really liked their scotch ale which I believe might have been barrel aged and joked they should bottle it. The rest of the line up at the time didn't really distinguish themselves. Ambiance hurt by parking lot being between building and the Fox River, but considering the building's age that is unavoidable.
