Celebrating great beer!
Bill Rogers and many of his closest beery friends celebrated the first anniversary of the Malt House Tuesday night.
For the naysayers who continue to write off craft beer as a minor niche, I have to point out that what struck me as I walked into the place Tuesday (but really just about any night I stop in) is that the faces in the crowd aren’t all the usual familiar beer geeks I know, but people of a wide range of ages, occupations, backgrounds, tastes, and on and on.
Whether they already know great beer or are just learning, Bill’s success with the Malt House can be seen not only in that he selects wonderful beers, but also that he and his bartenders have made it a friendly place where people want to stop in and enjoy good beer and conversation. It has often been said of Wisconsin that the tavern is an extension of the living room at home, and we can certainly see that at the Malt House.
Congratulations, Bill, on a successful first year, with many more to come!
