Old World Wisconsin and the Museum of Beer and Brewing are partnering and bringing to life 19th-century brews at their Historic Beer Brewing event at Old World Wisconsin. See the brewers use equipment and techniques from the late 1800s and learn about heirloom hops and barley.
By reconstructing immigrant brewing processes we are illuminating important aspects of our state’s culture, industry and German heritage. Historically, breweries were located in nearly every small village in Wisconsin during the 19th century and were cultural focal points.
Gather your friends and family and experience what your great-great-grandfather was brewing! See brewers use equipment and techniques from the late 1800s and heirloom hops and barley grown at Old World Wisconsin to bring the taste of 19th-century beer to you.
