Museum of Beer and Brewing and Old World Wisconsin Partnership

A partnership has begun between Old World Wisconsin and the Museum of Beer & Brewing, teaching the process of brewing beer, from growing the ingredients to fermentation, done the same way as the 19th-century brewmasters.

Check out the story in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel!

Milwaukee Historical Society turns a popular beer exhibit into a permanent one.

"The Milwaukee County Historical Society has moved a popular brewing exhibit into The Shops of Grand Avenue — where you'll be able to get a beer with your history lesson. The idea is for visitors to come in, look around and leave with some knowledge of Milwaukee's brewing roots. A bonus is that the museum's $10 entry fee includes a beer at the Milwaukee Beer Bar".

"The last surviving building from the old Gettelman Brewery, established on Milwaukee's west side in 1856, is being demolished. MillerCoors owns the 19th-century building where Gettelman once brewed $1000 Beer and Milwaukee's Best".
