    didn't much like beer until I was a teenager and then it was mainly the locally brewed Heileman's Old Style and Special Export. My dad and grandpa had taken me to bars and taverns ever since I was very young and I always enjoyed the camaraderie and general feel of the places. I started enjoying other beer when I joined the Navy after high school. Then later in college dating foreign ladies I got to trying foreign beers. In my late 30s I tried a little home brewing while I was off injured from train service as a railroad conductor. Then, needing a new career, I bought the historic building downtown La Crosse that had been a locally famous restaurant and turned it into a pub. After a rocky start we brewed beer for a couple of years using a Brew Magic 1/2 bbl system. Then a more skilled and larger capacity moved in for five years. That didn't work so well either so we just became what we think of as a classic pub: great beer and food to accompany. And the same camaraderie that I'd enjoyed over all those years. Now I do a lot of world wide travel and seeking out the best beers and places to enjoy them.
