Thursday on Lake Effect: Trans Activist Lou Sullivan, Beer Wars, 'Beer Lover's Wisconsin'

Thursday on Lake Effect:

We learn the story of Milwaukee’s own trans activist Lou Sullivan from a local author. Then, as the fight between Miller and Budweiser heats up once again, we look at the history of this rivalry and the state of big beer today. Plus, a Milwaukee writer brews up a “what’s what” and a “where’s where” about the state’s best beers.
