Yes, it’s more upscale than what most are used to but the food is the best in GB as is the beer. This is one place in GB you must visit. Their beer is the best in the city and one of my favorite breweries.
First time at this location, but my brother dragged me down to do a flight of beers. We ended up in the lounge upstairs sitting in some comfy leather chairs with our feet firmly planted on a bear skin rug. Man, this upscale beer drinking at its finest!!! Anyway, a very nice upstairs with very helpful staff who are beer enthusiastic. The style of the place is modern with an industrial twist. Although we did not order the menu looks pretty damn good. Anyway, a flight for the happy hour on Saturday 4 to 7 and some boubon aged beers makes this a great place to stop.
Hinterland moved from their central GB location to a prime spot next to Lambeau in March 2017. The new location is extremely nice, large parking lot, tons of table seating inside, much of it communal, and a large bar. The place was totally packed at about 7PM Tuesday evening, but we managed to find seats at the bar. Reservations are recommended if you want a table. Taplist consisted of a bunch of Hinterland beers as well as about 10 guest taps, which is cool. All beers available in flights of six, or as individual 5 oz samplers. The bartender was willing to do the samples even though he was slammed, which not all places will do. Food was quite good as well. I thought the beer quality varied a lot, but as with the girl with the curl, when it is good, it is very very good. Recommended for the experience as well as the beer.
Some of the best service I’ve had. My friend was on crutches, so they let us sit in the fancy dining area but let us order off the bar menu. Food was a bit pricey, but was pretty damn good. Beer selection was small, but the white ipa was pretty fucking good. Really, the service was very impressive which skews my rating a bit, but next time I’m in Green Bay I’ll be stopping back because of it.

My wife and I went to the lounge and had six beer sampler and few food items. We were impressed with the ambiance of the lounge and selection of both beers and food without going to the level of the high-priced restaraunt area. The service was excellent and the food and beers were as well. If you want drinks and/or a light meal, the lounge is probably the way to go. Highly recommended!
been back several more times since the original rating.
very very happy with this place every time we go. food is outstanding if a bit overpriced for what we’re used to but as a special occasion dinner it’s perfect.
service is "cool" but i prefer the hands off approach rather than waitresses dancing next to my table while country music blares. the bartenders upstairs tend to be very friendly. no problems that way.
very relaxed atmosphere.. been there many times for beers while wearing shorts and a t-shirt. mostly around happy hour. you’ll see a mix of people ... lots of business types but also some people dressed as casually. no need to feel out of place.
all their beers are worth a try. each is well done. given the choice between this and Titletown across the street for choice of beer i pick Hinterland every time.
Stopped in at 4:30 p.m. and the bar wasn’t busy at all. Bartender was very pleasant and was glad to give us some samples. Beers were well made. I enjoyed the Bourbon Barrel Doppelbock. Wish I would have had time to sample more.
My wife and I stopped in here on the way to Door County, and were surprised as this was the fanciest meal of our trip! The decor was a northwoods kind of fancy, and the staff were very well dressed. The food was gourmet several-star dining (with matching high pricetags), and was just excellent! The beers were very good, but they only had a handful on tap.. although they seem interested in experimenting with bigger/crazier brews. Very cool atmosphere and attentive service. This seemed out of place in Green Bay, though.
When I first entered this place, I though, wow, this is very New York...what the hell is it doing in Green Bay? - well, it turns out that the owner actually IS from New York (ironically enough, he grew up about 2 miles from the town I grew up in) - yea, the place is pretty fancy, but not at all snooty (perhaps by Green Bay standards it is, but I’m used to NY style snoot, so it didn’t bother me) - the servers were friendly, but sometimes slow - the food was pretty good, but some of it was a little pricey, as were their drinks that weren’t beer (but who drinks THAT shit?) - the beer ranged from good to excellent - not a bad one in the bunch - and the selection was decent (8 or so beers) - apparently they cater to local and out of town pharmaceutical company employees, which would explain the more highbrow ambiance - overall, I liked Titletown better, but this place has better beer.

The only drawback to this place is it is a little stuffy for Green Bay, or Wisconsin for that matter. Otherwise it is fantastic. Food is excellent, staff was great and beer was great. I was not dressed for success, but everyone was cool with it and had a fine time.
