Sprecher Brewings & Doings

14th November 2008

Hey Everyone,

I’m kind of new at this so I’d appreciate if you cut me some slack during these first few posts.  For those of you who don’t know, Sprecher Brewery is located Glendale, WI, a suburb just north of Milwaukee.  Started in 1985 by Randy Sprecher (my husband), Sprecher is a microbrewery that makes award-winning beers and gourmet sodas.  Among others beer-related awards, we won the 2004 GABF Small Brewing Company and Small Brewing Company Brewmaster of the Year awards.

Many people know Sprecher Root Beer, more so  recently because the  NY Times ranked it  #1 of 25 tasted (6/25/08).   Not Bad.   If you want to see  the brewery, check out CBS Sunday morning on Sunday, November 23rd.  The show is doing a special segment on root beer and they filmed it on location.  Also on Sunday, November 23rd — for those of you in the Milwaukee area — check out Maltylicious, a presentation on craft beer I’m giving at Sugar Maple American Craft Beer bar in Bay View.  One caveat — it’s for women only!  Yep.  That’s right.  No boys allowed.  But it’s being held in the back room so guys, feel free to come to Sugar Maple and try some of their 60 craft beers while class is in session.  Sugar Maple is located at 441 N. Lincoln Ave.   If you haven’t been to our website and want to learn more about Sprecher,  stop by or visit www.sprecherbrewery.com.

Cheers,  Anne

p.s. I may not blog much on weekends but I’ll try my best.
