OBC Bull

The Oshkosh Brewing Company had a history of telling ridiculous stories about its connection to Chief Oshkosh and the native people who had lived here. Here's a whopper 1953: “Our own 515 foot well produces water so delicious that the Indians used to trek for miles for a taste of it.”
Oshkosh Daily Northwestern; November 25, 1953

Total nonsense. The brewery’s 515-foot well was drilled in 1949. Nobody was trekking to Oshkosh for a taste of that well's water.
