Ken Notes: It is SOOO important that Wisconsin`s tourism industry recovers in a bug way this summer! If your brewery, winery, or distillery can play a part DO IT. Reach out to your local Visitors Bureau, Chamber, or business group and ask how you can help. Host events, let people camp in your parking lots, host a food truck, and make Wisconsin the place to visit.
