Travel Wisconsin recently asked residents to nominate their favorite brewery on social media in the ultimate Wisconsin Brewdown. With a reach of nearly 124,000 people, and more than 2,500 responses, Pearl Street Brewery ranked among the top 20 in the state.
Beer aficionados and novices alike are encouraged to vote for their favorite brewery as often as once per day now through Friday, July 24th at TravelWisconsin.com/Wisconsin-Brewdown and help crown Wisconsin’s favorite brewery, “Top in Hops.”
“Glad to see so many Pearl Street beer lovers out there cast a vote in our direction! We’re proud of the beer we’ve brewed and the parties we’ve had. This year is a year of innovation for Pearl Street and we are really excited about the future” said Pearl Street Owner and Brewmaster, Joe Katchever, “It’s good to show support for your local brewery no matter where you live, especially during this extraordinary year, and big thanks to Travel Wisconsin for doing this.”
With a mix of mega-breweries that made Wisconsin famous for beer and innovative craft breweries, Wisconsin remains at the center of the beer universe. By mixing traditional European brewing techniques with local ingredients and a deft artist’s touch, these entrepreneurs have created some of the most highly regarded beers in the world – as well as vibrant tourist attractions.
Dozens of Wisconsin’s breweries and brew pubs offer tours or tastings and visitors looking for a unique culinary and cultural experience can visit a number of them within a short distance in every region of the state.
“With so many great breweries throughout the state, The Wisconsin Brewdown is a fun way to support your local favorites and learn about new must-try breweries to visit in the future,” said Tourism Secretary-designee Sara Meaney. “I encourage all to participate by visiting TravelWisconsin.com, vote for your favorite brewery, and plan your trip to discover what’s on tap in Wisconsin.”
Breweries are an important sector of the tourism industry. The Wisconsin Brewdown promotion is one of a series of efforts the department is undertaking to spotlight and support the tourism industry’s recovery.
