By the late 1800s, Chicago’s brewing industry was booming. The middle-west was a land of beer opportunity and a young and ambitious German immigrant, Conrad Seipp, became major player in this story. Beginning his career as a beer wagon driver, Seipp eventually created a brewing powerhouse – becoming the largest producer of beer in the city and dominating much of the 19th century beer industry. His success led him to build Black Point Estate in Lake Geneva, a locale that would become a special place for the beer baron and his family.

Join us and the Wisconsin Historical Society for a conversation that provide an overview of Chicago’s brewing history and the role Conrad Seipp played in the industry.  Worry not, there will be beer!

This event is hosted by the Wisconsin Historical Society and takes place at Horticultural Hall in Lake Geneva.  Tickets may be purchased by following this link.
