Featured Events

Randy Sprecher To Be Honored
Join us in October to honor Milwaukee's own Sprecher Brewing Company. Reserve Sunday, October 5th for the ninth Karl Strauss Award Dinner. This year's dinner will be held at the Pfister Hotel in downtown Milwaukee. The dinner will be $90 per person. Corporate or private tables of 8 will be available for $700 which will include a  complimentary half page ad in the evening's program. The museum dinner is held to recognize contributions made by corporations, families, or individuals to the brewing industry. This year's recipient will be Randy Sprecher from Sprecher Brewing Company.


Sprecher Brewing Company was founded in 1985 by Randy. He previously worked as a brewing supervisor at Pabst Brewing in Milwaukee. For ten years the Sprecher Brewing Company was located in Milwaukee's Walker Point neighborhood. The brewery steadily grew which facilitated a move to its present location. The brewery was recognized as the Small Brewing Company of the year in 2004 at the Great American Beer Festival. Production for beer is approximately 22,000 barrels annually and growing.


The menu for this dinner will include your choice of: Sprecher Amber braised short ribs; Asiago risotto stuffed chicken; or a vegetarian option - Risotto made with Sprecher dark and roasted shallots, charred in fennel succotash and topped with shaved asiago. In addition a salad and dessert will be served.

Please register your choice when you sign up on this website's Store Page.
