'Bottoms Up' Book Event in Madison

Jim Draeger, co-author of "Bottoms Up: A Toast to Wisconsin's Historic Bars and Breweries," will speak about his exploration of Wisconsin's tavern culture, history and breweriana. The book 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. It traces the development of the megabreweries, dominance of the giants, and the emergence of microbreweries.

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.
