Hey all, sorry for the delay with this month’s Hoptellectual. This month is brewing themed as we trace the full-bodied history of Wisconsin’s brewing past with Jerry Apps’ Breweries of Wisconsin.
What to drink when you’re reading? I would say it’s time to drink a Schlitz, since a lot of Wisconsin’s brewing history is tied to the Schlitz brewing company, and that old formula. Something I learned from reading the first 50 pages: the Fauerbach building by my house was once home to Fauerbach Brewing Company, Madison’s first brewery.
Tell us what you’re thinking about! We’ll get back to the literature next month (and seriously, if you aren’t reading American Splendor, shame on you).
