By Brenda Magee, Introduction by Frederick Gettelman

Summary

Milwaukee is most famous for its booming brewing industry, which has a direct tie to a surge in German immigrants in the 1840s. These new citizens brought along their work ethic, culture, and a love for their native beverage. By 1860, nearly 200 breweries were in operation in Wisconsin, with more than 40 in Milwaukee alone. Of the original 40, four have stood the test of time: Blatz, Pabst, Schlitz, and Miller are still brewed in Milwaukee, right where they were born. The author, Brenda Magee, is a historian and a member of the Milwaukee County and Franklin Historical Societies. Her passion for research, along with her love for Milwaukee's history and its people, prompted the development of this book.
