Join Architectural Historian Jim Draeger, co-author of Bottom's Up: A Toast to Wisconsin's Historic Bars and Breweries, as he leads you through a suds-filled romp through evolution and change in Wisconsin’s beer and bar culture. Learn about the evolution of the tavern from stagecoach stops to sports bars. Trace the social, cultural, and technological changes brought about by liquor regulation, temperance, prohibition and its aftermath, and our postwar, media savvy society.
In addition to the meeting a presentation, we will also have Foxtown Brewery providing a beer sampling. Foxtown Brewery recently opened in Mequon in the historic Zimmerman-Optiz Brewery dating back to 1857. It should be a fun and interesting evening.
