Rock River Archaeological Society Presents “History of the Storck Breweries”
The Storck Breweries were located in Schleisingerville, WI., which is now Slinger, WI. In John’s talk we will learn how the name went from Schleisingerville to Slinger. He will also share how the brewery made it through Prohibition and beyond. The fact that it was active during Prohibition makes it an oddity. Some Prohibition breweries were able to stay in business by producing “near-beer” which was very low alcohol, some switched over to bottling sodas or other beverages, some became ice-houses or other related businesses. How did the Storck Brewery make it? We will find out.
A variety of items will be brought to the meeting for display such as a wooden half-barrel and signs of the brewery. It will be a very interesting program about the Storck Breweries that operated in Schleisingerville where only 3 breweries ever exhisted.
The public is invited to attend and enjoy the snacks after the program that are contributed by the members of the Rock River Archaeological Society. For more information one may call 920-928-6094.
