Eagle, Wis. – Taste the history of Wisconsin brewing at Old World Wisconsin this fall!  In partnership with the Museum of Beer and Brewing, Old World Wisconsin will finish their historic brewing program this season with new featured guest breweries during the months of September and October.
“The history of brewing in Wisconsin began thirteen years before it became a state,” said Dan Freas, site director at Old World Wisconsin.  “By the late 1890’s nearly every community in Wisconsin had at least one operating brewery.  Guests will have the opportunity to learn more about the historic brewing process while our Master Brewers brew up an historic 19th century beer using brewing equipment and processes of that period.”
Guests can stop by the Sudhaus, in the German Area, to fully engage their senses as they treat themselves to a cold brew while learning more about Wisconsin’s rich brewing history.  Also available for purchase are traditional German pretzels and root beer.  Below are the dates of the remaining featured brewery days this season:
  • Saturday, September 2: Delafield Brewhaus.  Delafield Brewhaus prides itself in keeping a wide variety of award winning beers on tap that are sure to please any discerning palate.  Delafield Brewhaus will be serving Delafield Amber, Sommerzeit Hefe Weizen and Naga-Wicked Pale Ale.
  • Saturday, September 9: Lakefront Brewery.  Milwaukee’s own Lakefront Brewery Inc. started in 1987.  The industrious and inventive microbrewery located on the Milwaukee River has become a Milwaukee landmark.  Lakefront Brewery will be serving Eastside Dark, Riverwest Stein and Kilsch Pilsner.
  • Saturday, September 16: Mob Craft Beer.  Mobcraft is the world’s first completely crowdsourced brewery.  MobCraft beer is a small craft brewewry that makes custom craft beer by producing small batch “custom craft beers” based on user submitted recipies.
