  • More About This Book
Although often overshadowed by Milwaukee’s brewing reputation, Green Bay has its own rich and proud brewing heritage. Beginning in the mid-nineteenth century, Blesch, Rahr, Hochgreve, Hagemeister and Van Dycke pioneered the art of brewing and brought the love of beer to the city and beyond. When Prohibition struck, some breweries couldn’t make it, others could and some pushed the limits of the law to bring people the beer they wanted. Today, Green Bay is a thriving beer city once more. The names are different—Titletown, Hinterland, Badger State and more—but the love and passion for tasty suds remain the same. Grab a pint and join author Cameron Teske on his beer journey from 1850 through today.
