From grain to glass—a complete illustrated history of brewing and breweries in the state more famous for beer than any otherCheers! From fine lagers to wicked ales—the complete history of brewing in Minnesota told here for the first time

Doug Hoverson, author of The Drink that Made Wisconsin Famous: Beer and Brewing in the Badger State and The Land of Amber Waters: The History of Brewing in Minnesota, will join the Wisconsin Historical Society for the Grand Opening of the Brewing Experience at Old World Wisconsin on Saturday, June 18. 

Purchase Old World Wisconsin tickets here. The Brewing Experience will be open from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, with presentations by Doug at 12:30 and 2:00 p.m. (30-40 minutes each). 

From the global breweries that developed in Milwaukee in the 1870s to the “wildcat” breweries of Prohibition and the upstart craft brewers of today, Doug Hoverson tells the stories of Wisconsin’s rich brewing history. Going beyond the giants like Miller, Schlitz, and Pabst that loom large in the state’s brewing renown, Hoverson delves into the stories of the hundreds of small breweries started by immigrants and entrepreneurs that delivered Wisconsin’s beer from grain to glass.

"This beautiful book is to Wisconsin what Doug Hoverson’s Land of Amber Waters is to Minnesota: the state’s definitive history of beer and breweries, a highly readable, exhaustively researched work that is as fun as it is informative. What a story!" —Kevin Revolinski, author of Wisconsin’s Best Beer Guide

"Anyone following contemporary craft beer in Wisconsin will appreciate the historical value of The Drink That Made Wisconsin Famous. That IPA in your hand owes a lot to the brewers of the past, and Doug Hoverson’s profound research and lively storytelling puts the state’s proud and sometimes scandalous heritage into context." —Kathy Flanigan, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel beer writer and author of Beer Lover’s Wisconsin

"The Drink That Made Wisconsin Famous becomes the essential resource for anyone with an interest in the state's beer and brewing history. There's simply nothing else like it." —Oshkosh Beer
