Wisconsin is a tavern state, and its bars and breweries have provided a place for communities to gather, offered a home for new immigrants, shaped local politics and influenced generations of families in the state. We will explore, in this PBS documentary, the rich history of Wisconsin’s taverns and breweries, from the earliest stagecoach stops to the German brewing empires in Milwaukee, as well as the neighborhood bars and saloons in communities across the state.
