|Wisconsin Breweries History: Milwaukee - Beer Town
For generations, Milwaukee has been known as "Beer Town." It used to be considered the beer capital of the world and its name has been immortalized by such beers as "Old Milwaukee" and "Milwaukee's Best." The image is reinforced every time the city's professional baseball team, the Milwaukee Brewers, goes on the road or plays before a national audience. Milwaukee ranks as a leader in the production of malt beverages and is home to the nation's second-largest brewer – Miller Brewing Company.
At the time of the Civil War there were about 25 breweries in the city, each producing just enough beer to serve their local neighborhood. Breweries didn't begin their aggressive expansion until after the Civil War when a war tax made whiskey too expensive.
By 1872, nearly half of the beer brewed in Milwaukee was being shipped out of town. When the Great Chicago Fire destroyed the Windy City's breweries, an overnight market was created for Milwaukee's beer barons. In one year alone, sales of Pabst Brewing Company, the Jos. Schlitz Brewing Co., Miller and the Blatz Brewing Co. increased an average of 44 percent.
In recent years several microbreweries have emerged, catering to the same types of niche markets common before the Civil War. Among them are Port Washington's Harbor City Brewing Company, and the Lakefront Brewery, which is located in downtown Milwaukee.
The area's most famous microbrewery is Sprecher Brewing Company, which was founded in 1985 by Randal G. Sprecher, who had been a brewery supervisor at Pabst Brewing Company. The brewery is not only known for its many flavors of beer, but also for its root beer and cream soda, which are sold regionally. Several brewpubs have also opened in and around Milwaukee. These facilities brew beer on their premises and serve a variety of food as well. Water Street Brewery was the city's first brew pub, but several others have opened within the last few years, including Rock Bottom and the Milwaukee Ale House, both of which have outdoor decks along the Milwaukee River.
