Following in his mother and fathers’ entrepreneurial footsteps, Bryan always knew he wanted to own an establishment in his hometown of Millstadt, IL. After spending 9 years homebrewing, winning several awards and becoming well versed in the craft beer world, Bryan and Lizzy Schubert decided it was time to take the leap and turn a passion into a profession, Millpond Brewing & Incubator.
The concept of Millpond Brewing & Incubator was developed alongside his brother in law Jeremy Schueler. Taking a different approach, Millpond Brewing and Incubator will offer beers professionally brewed by Bryan, but also provides an opportunity for homebrewers to brew their recipes and offer it for sale to the public. Homebrewers are a creative, passionate, and extremely talented bunch but can’t efficiently showcase their talents to the masses and Bryan hopes to change that, while also offering the public his approach to brewing.
Millpond Brewing & Incubator’s focus is and always will be on improving our community, focusing on local brewers and ingredients. Bryan and Lizzy hope to be able to welcome you soon.

Where did you get the name “Millpond Brewing and Incubator”?
The town of Millstadt has strong roots as a farming and milling community. At one time the town boasted three mills, and in a rare arrangement, these three mills shared the same millpond. In communities such as Millstadt, the millpond was a place for fun. In the summertime residents of the community would swim, fish, have picnics, and hold family gatherings at the millpond. In the wintertime they would skate on the frozen water and sled on its banks. Millponds became the first, defacto, city parks. Incubator – this portion pays homage to our homebrewing roots, and allows the community of strong homebrewers in the area to showcase their talents to their peers
Will you have food?
We hope to offer food soon through Millpond by leasing a space to a well-established, much-loved restaurant. In the meantime, you can order and bring in food, including food from any of Millstadt’s local establishments (Ott’s, Mariachi’s, Breadeaux, Papa Vitos, Smokin K’s, sorry if we missed anyone) and we will have food trucks on select days until the food service through the brewery is ready.
