Sprecher Brewing Co. was founded in 1985 by RANDAL SPRECHER, formerly a brewing supervisor at Pabst Brewing Company, Milwaukee, Wisconsin. From 1985 to 1994, the brewery was located in Milwaukee's Walker's Point area. Through the first ten years the company grew steadily as more and more people found out about Sprecher's high quality beers and sodas. Finally, the company had outgrown its original facility and began looking for a new location to continue its growth.

In 1994, Sprecher purchased its current building, a former elevator car factory, located in Glendale just north of Milwaukee. The new, larger brewery enabled the company to continue growing, and allowed more people to enjoy all of Sprecher's fine products.

At the 2004 GABF:
Sprecher was named small brewery of the year;
Craig Burge was named small brewery Brewmaster of the year;
They won gold medals in the Oktoberfest and Scotch Ale categories.
