“We keep evolving; with new specials every week, and seasonally changing entrees and flavor profiles. We’re always having fun with what’s in your glass and on your plate,” said Executive Chef Ashley Turner.
Eager to cultivate a meaningful relationship with the brewery’s customers, Turner said they have worked to create a community.
“Hand-made, from-scratch, highlighting many various local partnerships; these things are foundational at the brewery,” she said. “We’re always thinking of our community, our beer, and how to showcase what is unique to us here in Walworth County. A culture of family and community guides us.”
East Troy Brewery is currently featuring its Brazos Steak – 8 oz. Prime Angus Bavette Steak with compound butter, marinated and paired with smoked veggies and Southwest Rice.
Turner comes to East Troy by way of Texas, bringing her background in southwestern and smoked foods to East Troy Brewery.
The seasonally-evolving menu pairs fan favorites like hand battered Hill Valley Dairy cheese curds, ET Square Pizzas and Friday Fish Fry with inventive plates like the “Glazy Boy” (sliced house-smoked pork in between two Grebe’s glazed doughnuts) and the brand new scallops and littleneck clams with a brandy-bacon sauce.
Toast’d Trio – This app is perfect for just grabbing a quick pint. It includes garlic flatbread, Curried Tomato, Chimichurri, and Black Garlic Hummus.

Location in this case is everything as visitors can get a spot near large windows in the space overlooking East Troy Village Square Park, a downtown attraction known for regularly hosting festivals and events.
“We’re hopeful to see a busy patio season that is lively, full of music, and great new flavors!” said Turner. “We have new things on the horizon that we’re extremely excited about (no spoilers yet, though..) and we’re looking forward to being a part of several events this summer where we’ll get to share how great our town is with larger audiences.”
