An Online History of Beer in Oshkosh

I’ve been chipping away at the Oshkosh Beer Timeline for over three years now. The idea is to have an online space dedicated to the history of beer and brewing in Oshkosh. I’ve just completed a large number of updates to the site, making it far more comprehensive. There are still some gaps in the history presented there, but I’ll be addressing those before long.

The timeline presents a simple, fairly streamlined overview of beer in Oshkosh from 1849 to the present. Most entires have links to pages that explore topics in-depth. Currently, there are more than 70 linked articles.

Also included are a couple of guided tours accessible as downloadable PDF files. You’ll find those in the upper right sidebar. One is for touring Oshkosh’s brewing sites. The other is a beer-based walking tour of Riverside Cemetery.

The Oshkosh Beer Timeline is still a work in progress, but it’s also the most complete online source for beer history related to Oshkosh. There's plenty there, but if you crave more you can always check out The Breweries of Oshkosh.
