Thursday on Lake Effect: Best of Drinks

Thursday on Lake Effect:

We look back at some of our favorite conversations about drinking. First, a local beer writer gives his top picks from Milwaukee-area breweries in 2018. Then, we revisit our Lake Effect On Site in Bayview, with beer writer Kathy Flanigan. Later, we go behind the scenes at a Milwaukee distillery to learn how flouting conventions in the liquor-world can lead to better results. Plus, the people behind a Wisconsin soda company say their soda’s competitive edge is due their product being healthier than your average pop.
