  3. Local Liquid: Lombard’s Noon Whistle

    Noon Whistle co-founder and brewer Paul Kreiner grew up vacationing in Marquette, Wisconsin where a local tradition left an indelible mark. Each day at noon a whistle blew signaling that it was time to take a break, relax and have lunch. For Paul and many others that also came to mean enjoying a nice, refreshing beer. Determined to prove that big flavor need not mean big alcohol, Noon Whistle set out to brew more “sessionable” brews, the kind of beverage you could enjoy at any time of day.  

    We recently stopped by Noon Whistle’s brewery in order to taste and see what they were all about. With a brand new canning operation up and running, we are happy to announce the arrival of three tap room favorites now available in six packs at a Binny's near you.
