Wisconsin is home to thousands of bars and breweries, so it’s nice to know people out there like Jim Draeger, who feel compelled to put them all together in one place through compilations like Bottoms Up: A Toast to Wisconsin’s Historic Bars and Breweries. Draeger’s book focuses on 70 of Wisconsin’s most treasured establishments to provide snapshots of each, examining their architecture and history and why they’ve endured. He’ll discuss the book as part of a celebration of American Craft Beer Week at the Wisconsin Brewing Company, 1079 American Way, Verona, in partnership with the Verona Public Library. Books will be available for purchase and signing. Admission is free.
