The Wisconsin Historical Society Speakers Bureau offers an exciting opportunity for our historians, curators and authors to visit your community and share the stories of our great state.
Join Architectural Historian Jim Draeger, co-author of Bottom's Up: A Toast to Wisconsin's Historic Bars and Breweries, as he leads you through a suds-filled romp through evolution and change in Wisconsin’s beer and bar culture. Learn about the evolution of the tavern from stagecoach stops to sports bars. Trace the social, cultural, and technological changes brought about by liquor regulation, temperance, prohibition and its aftermath, and our postwar, media savvy society.
