A Virtual Tea

Join us to learn about the History of Beer Brewing in Wisconsin, presented by Jerry Janiszewski, President of Big Bear Consulting and a board member of the Museum of Beer and Brewing. Jerry will discuss how the European immigrants used their farming and brewing skills to build frontier farm breweries in the mid-nineteenth century. The environment was similar to their mother country, so they could grow crops such as barley and hops in the summer and brew beer in the winter. As rail shipping and road transportation improved several became a brewing powerhouse that lead to the wealth of the Beer Barons of Milwaukee including Pabst, Schlitz, Blatz and Miller.

This presentation will also include information on the beer brewing program at OWW and a box of goodies. Your goody box will be sent to you. It includes teabags, cookies, and a ticket for free admission to The National Brewery Museum in Potosi.
