Where Bayfield Meets

The Pier Lounge is known to locals and friends as The Pickled Herring. Whether you join us inside at the bar or outside on our (dog friendly!) deck, it’s a great place to lay back and enjoy the lake view along with one of our Wisconsin-brewed tap beers or daily drink specials. Bayfield strawberries and raspberries, when in season, make the best margaritas and daiquiris! As the leaves start to change colors in the Fall, so do the seasonal favorites - people come just to taste our Bayfield Apple Cider Sangria. Order an appetizer or food from the restaurant for yourself or the kids.

Draft Selections

Alaskan White

5.3%. Soft, slightly sweet base with the unique spice aroma of coriander and crisp, citrus finish of orange peel. A light and effervescent body combined with the smooth palate creates a complex and delicate beer that is deliciously refreshing in any season.

Miller Lite

4.2%. American light lager.

Central Waters Mud Puppy Porter

5.8 %. ABV Robust and Refreshing porter pours like a dark cola with a fleeting tan head, but its aroma hangs in the air. Sweet toffee scents with rich milk chocolate and dash of roasted coffee.

Earth Rider Superior Ale

5.7%. Brewed for Northlanders who live near the greatest lake. American hops lend citrus notes to this crisp, clean, and easy drinking pale. Hold fast.

Milwaukee Brewing Company Hazy IPA

MVP-5.5%. ABV A Hazy IPA with Citra and Mosaic Hops joining forces for this shop forward IPA. Bright, Juicy and refreshing full of citrus and tropical notes.

Stella Artois

5.2% ABV. Sophisticated Belgian beer has a well-balanced flavor profile - pleasantly bitter with a refreshing finish.

Surly Furious IPA

6.7%. ABV American IPA Brewed in MN with a dazzling blend of American hops and Scottish Malt, this crimson hued ale delivers waves of citrus, pine and caramel toffee.
