Author event and Book signing: Jim Draeger
January 24 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
Join 702WI at Working Draft Beer Company on Thursday, January 24th at 7pm for a talk and Q&A with author Jim Draeger about his book Bottoms Up: A Toast to Wisconsin’s Historic Bars & Breweries. Draeger will share fun and entertaining stories about Wisconsin bars and breweries, and Working Draft will serve up a special flight of beer paired to his talk! A book signing will follow.
Bottoms Up celebrates Wisconsin’s taverns and the breweries that fueled them. The book traces the development of the megabreweries, dominance of the giants, and the emergence of microbreweries. Contemporary photographs of unusual and distinctive bars and breweries of all eras, historical photos, postcards, advertisements, and breweriana illustrate the story of how Wisconsin came to dominate brewing and the place that bars — and beer — hold in our social and cultural history.
