Gnarly Cedar Brewery

Our Story

Founded in 2019, Gnarly Cedar is a part of LedgeStone Estate.


Prehistoric Roots

Formed before the age of dinosaurs, the Niagra Escarpment is a unique geological formation located behind the property.


The Gnarly Cedar

Perched high on the cliffsides behind the brewery lives the oldest tree in Wisconsin. Estimated at 1322 years old.


LedgeStone Vineyards

Vineyards were first planted in 1999. Over 10 acres of cold hardy grapes are planted on the property


New Owners

Adam and Katrina Magnuson purchased the property in 2017 and began its transformation.


Brewery Formed

In 2019, the brewery began operation with a 1 Barrel System.



In 2021, the brewery and winery were expanded. A 7 barrel system was installed and is now in operation.

Visiting the Brewery

Any time of year is a good time to visit. Whether it is Winter snowshoeing around the property or enjoying live music in the summer - there is always something to check out.

At Gnarly Cedar we are surrounded by cropland and the beauty of the Niagara Escarpment. A reminder of place and the farmers that support what we do as a brewery. We embrace the outdoor life, and the freedom that comes with exploration of your passions.

We love clean and refreshing beers that keep you coming back, and often find that simplicity in the recipe prevails.


Our Team

Love what you do.
