About Us:

In 1916, the Mount Horeb Creamery and Cheese Company constructed a brick building on the corner of South Second Street and Front Street on the former site of the Herman Dahie Ice House. Most of the dairy farmers in the area were patrons and hauled milk to the creamery in horse drawn wagons. Over time, the company expanded, and a new building next door enabled the production of Swiss cheese. Over 30,000 pounds of milk were processed each day. In 1945, the building was sold to the Ryser Brothers Cheese Company who manufactured cheese in this location for over 40 years. When the business closed, the building sat vacant for several years.

In 1998, after an extensive two year remodeling project, this historic building was given new life as the Mount Horeb Pub and Brewery. In 2000, the building was remodeled again, and re-opened as The Grumpy Troll Brewpub.
