Wisconsin Brewing Co., Verona, Wis., announced a new brewing agreement with Toppling Goliath, Decorah, Iowa.

Founded in 2009 by Clark and Barbara Lewey, and under the leadership of Brewmaster Michael Saboe, Toppling Goliath has won numerous regional, national and international awards and is about to embark on its second expansion. Citing the increased demand for its beer and the commitment to building a new brew house, Lewey and Saboe researched regional breweries that could assist with producing their flagship beer, Dorothy’s New World Lager.

“We’ve had a relationship with Wisconsin Brewing for some time; we’ve shared a few beers together and really hit it off,” said Clark Lewey, president and founder of Toppling Goliath, in a statement. “They’ve built a state-of-the-art facility and their quality control is phenomenal. We felt the best way to expand our distribution into Wisconsin was to brew in Wisconsin.”

Carl Nolen, president and chief executive officer of Wisconsin Brewing Co., added: “Working with our sister-state, Clark and the team at Toppling Goliath will leverage opportunities for both breweries. As we look to the future, we’re considering cross-promoting new beers especially made for beer lovers in Wisconsin, Minnesota and Iowa. We’re really proud to be working with Toppling Goliath and looking forward to many new projects together.”
