Taste Traditions of Wisconsin: Breweries of Wisconsin with Jerry Apps (Sold Out)
Explore the rich culinary history, delicious indigenous ingredients, and remarkable foodways of Wisconsin. Celebrate Madison Craft Beer Week and join award-winning author Jerry Apps as he tells the story of the Dairy State's other major industry: beer. Discover how German immigrants brought beer to Wisconsin and spawned the creation of nearly 200 breweries, how Prohibition nearly ended the industry, and how a new wave of microbreweries and brewpubs in Wisconsin is bringing beer back to its delicious roots. A sampling of Potosi Brewing Company beers and a pub-style dinner by Brocach will complement the presentation. A book signing will follow the program. This event is being held in conjunction with Madison Craft Beer Week.
