In 1962 Lenny and Marge Meyer opened Meyer's Supper Club
in St.Nazianz, Wisconsin. Lenny loved serving his customers
Old Fashioned cocktails made from scratch. The Supper
Club was always busy with thirsty old fashioned cocktail
drinkers. Since time was of the essence, Lenny created his
own homemade old fashion mix to keep his patrons’
glasses full. As children, the six sons would often help their
parents with restaurant duties. The boys recall never
being able to keep up with cleaning the cocktail glasses.
After Lenny and Marge retired, the brothers continued to
hear strong reviews from past patrons of the supper club.
They miss the “best tasting old fashion cocktail” in the
In late spring of 2009, the annual Meyer brothers fishing
trip was soon approaching where lots of old fashioned
drinking occurs. Steve Meyer decided to ask his father for the
recipe. The brothers reminisced over the memories and the
drinks, a few weeks later, sitting on a deck overlooking a trout
stream in northern Wisconsin, a new company was born.
By mid-summer of 2009 the Meyer Brothers formed “The Meyer
Brothers LLC,” purchased a license, and started producing
small batches of the old fashioned mix. They conducted various
market tests by offering free tastings and sample size bottles.
The reviews were very positive. In 2010, the Meyer Bothers
decided to take their venture to the next level and began to
produce their old fashioned mix in 750 ml bottles. The brothers,
together, chose to use the family crest as part of their label.
With persistence and determination their business continues to
grow. By September 2012 they partnered with General
Beverage who presented their products throughout the state of
Wisconsin. With the assistance of Badger wholesale, General
Beverage, and Saratoga Liquor Company the retail accounts
have flourished to 340 which continue to grow daily.
The Meyer Brothers have decided to head quarter the company
in St. Nazianz Wisconsin, the same village it was created in by
their father in 1962.
