From the soil to suds and spirits: Where to find creative cocktails and beer on Wisconsin farms

DANE, Wis. - We're ready for a bit of day drinking at 1:30 p.m. on a Monday and know where to begin.

A tree-lined driveway near Dane, 20 miles north of Madison, leads to expansive lawns and a farmhouse with pillars and shutters. Doors are locked, but on a chalkboard is this: We'll be right back. We're touring the rickhouses.

Sprinkled through Wisconsin are farmers with a thirst to quench the public's cravings for beverages from small-batch beer to vodka. It's a way to add streams of new revenue from farm-grown grains, and visitors can sample these farm-based spirits and suds across the state.
