This presentation is offered in conjunction with the display of MKI’s traveling exhibit “Neighbors Past and Present” at the Chippewa Valley Museum in Eau Claire.
The story of Wisconsin is the story of many different cultures. Each made their contributions, often by bringing important elements of their culture with them when they arrived here. In the case of the German community, that meant the establishment of many small breweries. While most of these breweries went under before Prohibition, a few limped out of it and now many new ones are springing up! Join Dr. Wolter with a look at breweries from Chippewa Valley’s past, some of which would have been within sight of the Museum! Free admission.
