High demand has brewery in Plover planning new expansion


A brewery in Plover is looking to expand because of what owners are calling a huge demand.

The owners of the O'So Brewery say they're having a tough time keeping beer on the shelves.

Marc Buttera is one of the owners of the brewery. He started brewing back in college when his neighbor introduced him to the process.

"I just latched onto it and really enjoyed it, enjoyed the passion, and the technical side of things," Buttera said.

He adds that he's amazed on how popular their beer has become.

"They're just pulling it faster than we can make it," added Buttera.

City leaders say an expansion is a good thing because breweries are a selling point for tourists.

"As quickly as we've grown I didn't think we'd be talking about this amount of growth this fast," said Buttera. He attributes part of his success to the unique flavors of their beer.

"I think that people are just tired of regular old you know regular beer, they're wanting something unique," said Buttera.

"I like to think of it in terms of rap, rap music, it's like freestyle, we just kind of improvise and we do some different things that other breweries out there aren’t doing," said Keith Lehman, brewery employee.

Buttera says his brewery is helping put Wisconsin on the map.

"That's what we're trying to do here is not just make a name for O'So brewing but make a name for Wisconsin craft beer," Buttera said.

He adds the expansion will include more machines, a new building, and even more flavors of beer.
