'Bottoms Up: A Toast to Wisconsin's Historic Bars & Breweries' Book Event in North Lake

"Bottoms Up: A Toast to Wisconsin's Historic Bars & Breweries" celebrates Wisconsin's taverns and the breweries that fueled them. Beginning with inns and saloons, the book explores the rise of taverns and breweries, the effects of temperance and Prohibition, and attitudes about gender, ethnicity and morality. The book features 70 taverns and breweries from around the state.

Join Jim Draeger and Mark Speltz in celebrating Hanson's Pub's 150th anniversary. They will be speaking and signing copies of 'Bottoms Up,' which features the pub.

Jim Draeger is an architectural historian and deputy state historic preservation officer at the Wisconsin Historical Society with more than 25 years of historic preservation experience. From roadside architecture to Northwoods resorts, Draeger celebrates the importance of ordinary buildings to our daily lives through his research, writing, and lectures.

Mark Speltz is a senior historian at American Girl and recently completed a master's degree in public history at the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee.
