Last Call for The Breweries of Oshkosh

A couple years ago, Oshkosh Breweriana collector Ron Akin and myself gathered our resources and wrote a book about the history of beer and brewing in Oshkosh. The people of Oshkosh were especially kind to us and The Breweries of Oshkosh sold well. Ron kept a couple of boxes of books in reserve to sell at breweriana trade shows and now he’s releasing those remaining books to anyone who would like a copy.

The Breweries of Oshkosh, Their Rise and Fall tells the complete story of beer and brewing in Oshkosh from 1849 to the present. It’s a hardcover book printed on high-quality paper and includes more than 400 illustrations, many of them in color. Beer Cans & Brewery Collectibles Magazine says, “Readers will have no problem sticking around to the end of this entertaining book... highly recommended, and not just for Cheeseheads.” It would make a great gift for that beer and history lover in your life.

The Breweries of Oshkosh is available for $39.95 at the following locations in Oshkosh:

  • Camera Casino
  • Caramel Crisp
  • Jansen’s Restaurant
  • Originals Mall of Antiques
  • Paper Tiger Book Store
  • Star Gallery Art & Antiques
  • Or you can call (920) 233-0865 for free local delivery

This is the last call for this book and there won’t be a reprint.

  1. Does this book have any photos of railroad brewery cars with billboard signage for a S-Scale modeler located in Stoughton Wis.Wher can I buy a 6 or twelve pack of Peopls brew on my next trip to Oshkosh. Is thjs a short run or new production by one of the local pubs. This was a long time family favorite at area bars on Puckaway lake where I spent my youth. Can some one help me on brewery photos.
