Brewers and Bottlers

June 23 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Exhibit at the Nicollet County Historical Society

From the small pioneer breweries established on the territorial prairie to large modern bottling facilities, the Nicollet County Historical Society explores our rich history of locally produced beverages in their latest exhibit, Brewers & Bottlers: A Refreshing History of Beer and Soda Making in Nicollet County.

Beer and soda have long held an important place in American history, even here in Nicollet County. The brewmasters and soda makers of the area served the role of providing refreshment to the hard-working people who were building the landscape we have here today.

Brewers & Bottlers: A Refreshing History of Beer and Soda Making in Nicollet County showcases material from the collections of the Nicollet County Historical Society and other donors related to the history and heritage of brewing and bottling in Nicollet County.
