“Milwaukee’s Beer Line” Photographic Exhibition Opening at Capital Brewery
February 5, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The Center for Railroad Photography & Art is proud to partner with Capital Brewery to present the historic photography exhibition Milwaukee’s Beer Line.
The traveling exhibition, on display in the brewery’s newly remodeled Grain Room, is comprised of a collection of 1950s-era photographs that chronicle the little known history that link together Milwaukee’s railroading and brewing industries. Using images from the Center’s Wallace W. Abbey Collection, the display shines a light on the impressive railroad line, the Milwaukee Road, and the blue-collar work force that help build the city’s legendary Schlitz, Pabst, and Blatz breweries. This rail line was instrumental to the growth of Milwaukee’s favorite breweries and became commonly known as ‘The Beer Line’.
Join us at Capital Brewery on Tuesday, February 5, 2019, from 6-9 PM for a night of history and beer to celebrate the exhibition opening. At 7 PM John Kelly, author of Railroads of Milwaukee will give a multimedia presentation on the history of the beer line.
Capital Brewery will also commemorate the exhibition opening with a special tapping of ‘Iron Bender Dark’, a Munich style dark lager.
