"Hinterland says it will be a ‘key tenant’ of the much-anticipated Titletown District next to Lambeau Field.

Action 2 News learned before today’s 11:45 news conference that the new brewery location in the district will be 20,000 square feet–nearly 4 times larger than the current Hinterland in downtown Green Bay.

The new brewery will produce 20,000 barrels of beer each year. There will be tasting rooms, a gift shop and a 50-75 seat restaurant."

So I wonder how Titletown BREWING feels about their local competitor being the beer focus in an area called the "Titletown District."

Packers own the rights to "Titletown". not sure why the brewpub is allowed to use that name. 

http://www.digitalbrandinsider.com/green-bay-packers-defend-titletown-trademark/


though, they just announced that their beer will be available at Lambeau this year.

http://fox11online.com/news/local/green-bay/titletown-brewing-co-canning-its-beer-for-lambeau-field


eta:  this, i guess:  http://www.intellectualpropertynews.com/trademark-news/superbowl-champion-packers-protect-titletown-trademark/

There are several established businesses in Green Bay that have been using the Titletown trademark for years.  There is Titletown Brewing Co., Titletown Train Show, Titletown Oil, and the Green Bay Chamber of Commerce’s web address is www.titletown.org, and the city includes Titletown U.S.A. in its logo.  However, most of these entities have priority of use and so wouldn’t have to cease use if requested by the Packers.

Most of these businesses with priority of use are practicing their “common law” rights, in which a federal registration is not required to establish rights to a trademark.  These rights are based on actual use of the trademark and may allow the common law user to successfully challenge a trademark application or registration.  Common law trademarks are related to products and services in a particular geographic region and are established by years of use.

In the case of Titletown, it appears that local businesses and municipalities are respectful of how the name was derived and use the name harmoniously with the NFL team.

The Force is what gives a brewer his power. It's an energy field created by yeast. It surrounds us and penetrates us. It converts polysaccharides to ethyl alcohol.

I remember popping into the restaurant in Milwaukee a few years back, it was pretty fancy which struck me as odd for the area. (near the bro district)

Hinterland Brewery is set to relocate to the Titletown District this spring. Before they move, team brewed one last batch, a blackberry Berliner weisse, at their location on Dousman Street in the Broadway District, home since 1999.

http://www.wbay.com/content/news/Inside-the-Titletown-Districts-new-Hinterland-Brewery-418284113.html

ASHWAUBENON, Wis. (WBAY) - The Titletown District west of Lambeau Field, behind a construction fence for months, is showing signs of life.

The new location for the Hinterland Brewery is just days away from opening. It's the brewery's largest operation yet.

Owner Bill Tressler calls the journey long and winding but well worth it.

"This business is not much different than any other business. You really have to grind it out, do the heavy lifting, and make sure that at the end of the day you're proud of what you've accomplished and put out there."

Five years in the planning, it has much of the same flavor as their former downtown Green Bay location.

Upstairs will now be the more personal high gravity kitchen. "It's a very chef-driven experience where you can sit right here at the chef's table and have them cook to your liking," Tressler said.

Physically it's a larger building, meaning the room to do a lot more brew-making than they're used to. They're now capable of making up to 12,000 barrels of beer compared to 5,000 in their previous location.

"We have a 30-barrel brew house in which we can do four brews a day," head brewer Joe Karls said.

And now their craft is a little more high-tech. "This brewhouse is automated. Not fully automated, it's a partially automated brewhouse. Our old brewhouse was all manual control."

But still old school.

"This is where our beer will ferment," Karls shows us. "Lagers will ferment out for about 10-15 days, our ales will ferment out for about four or five."

Tressler says the transition to the Titletown District has been special -- and an honor.

After more than 18 years with his business, Tressler says the previous locations were just stepping stones.

"It's unbelievable as a kid growing up in Green Bay. This is hallowed ground, right? So it's pretty special to be a part of this -- even chosen to be part of it. Still definitely pinching myself on that one."

"It doesn't seem real," he said, "but the Titletown District is going to be amazing, and the Packers have really put in a lot of thought and detail into it, and we just can't wait to see it all unfold."

No opening date is set, though they expect sometime in the middle of next week.

They still have some job openings.

New place is set to open Wednesday.   Looks like they'll be opening at 11:00 each day.

I'm more curious about the restaurants than the beer.  Wonder what the new menus/prices will be like.

Finally checked out the new Hinterland last night.

I had one beer - the dunkelweizen - and it was not good.  Much too sweet. 

Food was very good, as usual, and very expensive.  Didn't even consider an entree, since I didn't bring any gold bullion with me. 

The new environment sucks.  It's a large open warehouse space, with a very crowded seating arrangement, giant TVs everywhere, and much too loud music.  The old Hinterland had a much more intimate, relaxing vibe.  It's always been expensive, but it used to be much more of a "fine dining" experience.  Now, they have similar food and prices, but they've dumped it into a stadium district sports bar.  They also don't seem to have any type of happy hour specials anymore, so get ready to fork over $7 for a beer and $16 for a small appetizer.

Can't think of any reason to go back.

it's definitely a different feel. that said, the downtown spot always felt underused.

something tells me the new building is way too much to maintain and it won't be there lon.g.

Seemed like a totally different type of customer at the new spot.  I was wearing khakis and a polo and felt overdressed.  I'd be curious to know how many of their old customers frequent the new place. 

I don't mind going to a big, open warehouse/beer hall type of bar for double bubble, a plate of nachos, and a burger.  But don't expect me to pay $38 for a plate of baked halibut in a place like that.  The space just doesn't seem to fit the menu, imo.

i'd bet they rake in cash from the tourists coming to visit Lambeau who have no nostalgia for the old place... or who never knew it existed at all
