With a passion for hospitality, Mike and Joan Doble founded The Explorium Brewpub in 2016. Mike grew up traveling the world as a child of the military; Joan is a Wisconsin girl with strong roots in Milwaukee. A few years ago in 2014, they ventured to Florida to lend a hand in the family brewpub business in Tampa, FL. Armed with new-found knowledge and experience, Mike and Joan came back home to Wisconsin in late 2015 to develop a brewpub of their own bringing together the best of their experiences. They are grateful for the support of their family and partners who helped make this all possible.
Why the name The Explorium? We believe humans are endowed with an innate desire to learn about the world around us. We are certain that folks like Livingstone, Shackleton, and Earhart would have loved a place to gather around a fire, lift a glass in toast, and enjoy learning about each other’s discoveries. These were bold humans who lived in different eras and hailed from different lands, but all were endowed with an innate desire to explore and discover new people and places. The famous explorers of our past inspire us to travel to new places, meet new people, enjoy new customs, and try new flavors. Come gather around the fire, share your tales of travels near and far while exploring the flavors of hand crafted beer and food inspired by cuisines from around the world with plenty of homegrown roots.
The Explorium is the gathering place we created for all who love to explore, taste, and discover all of the possibilities our world has to offer.
