Friday on Lake Effect: Best Of On-Site

Friday on Lake Effect:

Our "On-Site" series heads to the Pabst Milwaukee Taproom & Brewery in the heart of the city's Brewery District. Historian John Gurda and the late former architecture critic Whitney Gould discuss the evolution and transformation of the area. Then, photographer Paul Bialas talks about his work documenting the once abandoned brewery site. Later, the owner of Milwaukee Brewing Company and Pabst Milwaukee's head brewer talk about their craft. Plus, musicians Trapper and Tanner Schoepp underscore the evening as the show's house band.
