LOZ Brewing Co. is a family owned microbrewery serving craft beer by the glass and growler. Come watch on their “observation deck” and see how they brew! Their new backyard is the perfect spot to enjoy our brews with family and friends!
How They Started
Jacob Schuster, Brewmaster, received his first homebrew kit at age 21. He found this to be very entertaining and continued to brew as a hobby throughout college. In 2013, Jacob introduced his soon-to-be father-in-law, Rick Weber, to the art of homebrewing. Together, they brewed beer for the rehearsal dinner and bottled beers for the centerpieces/gifts at the reception. This was the start of a fun hobby for the two of them.
Until 2018, they had only brewed in the garage with a 5 gallon system. Once they realized this hobby could be something more, they purchased a 10 gallon system to further their knowledge on recipes and brewing processes. In January of 2019, Jacob and Rick purchased property to start Lake of the Ozarks Brewing Company and made every Homebrewer’s dream a reality!
Observation Deck Fun
If you enjoy experimenting with new recipes, or watching the brewing process unfold, come watch on their “observation deck” and see how they brew!
LOZ Brewing has a delicious menu, including freshly-popped corn and a meat/cheese tray, but the star is homemade beer cheese and a soft pretzel for dipping.
This cheese earns its creamy depth of flavors from the Damsel in Distress Blonde Ale, a light brew that customers enjoy and one that Jacob has been brewing for several years.
Equally light and refreshing ales with modest Alcohol by Volume (ABV) are Gold Nugget Junction Golden Ale and Little Niangua Pale Ale made with Cascade hops to deliver a smooth, lightly hoppy taste.
The names of LOZ Brews are nods to Lake of the Ozarks’ history and enterprise. Gold Nugget Junction Golden Ale recalls an Osage Beach amusement park while 19th W-Hole Wheat honors the myriad golfing options that bring thousands to the Lake year-round.
Lake of the Ozarks Brewing Company is open Thursday through Sunday in the off-season. Spending an afternoon learning a bit about the family spirit in the spirits is a good way to spend time in any season!
