'Bottoms Up: A Toast to Wisconsin's Historic Bars and Breweries' at the Wisconsin Science Festival

"Bottoms Up: A Toast to Wisconsin's Historic Bars and 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.

Jim Draeger, co-author of 'Bottoms Up,' will be at the Wisconsin Science Festival in Madison to participate in a panel discussion on the history of beer making in Wisconsin.

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.
