Historic Beer Brewing

Old World Wisconsin and the Museum of Beer and Brewing are partnering and bringing to life 19th-century brews. 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.

Old World Wisconsin is pleased to welcome Second Salem as our Featured Brewery on July 14.
