Moosejaw & Dells Brewing Co.
Locally owned, Moosejaw Pizza & Dells Brewing Co. is centrally located between Chicago & Minneapolis in the heart of Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin. Moosejaw seats 600+ customers within the 3 levels of our full service restaurant which specializes in fresh, piping, hot pizzas (with dough made fresh daily)! Moosejaw also features freshly prepared comfort foods such as burgers, pastas, salads, sandwiches, entrees & kids’ meals.
During Prohibition, alcohol was legal in Canada & with ready access to Chicago by rail, it was a relatively simple matter for Capone to distill & ship alcohol in great quantities directly to Chicago for sale to fund his criminal empire. When in Moose Jaw, Al Capone supposedly (Although there were several reports by people who said they saw him, no photographs or documentation exists) lived in a motel directly across the street from the Canadian Pacific Railway depot/freight yard & operated his enterprises in a network of steam tunnels & rooms under the streets of the city.
The history, whether fictitious or not, of the city was so interesting; we thought it would make a great restaurant concept. Also, the fact that we make our own microbrew at Moosejaw lent itself wonderfully to Al Capone using the city as a hub of action during the Prohibition.
