Ken Notes: Ah to be young again, in the 70`s I lived in Waupaca and worked as a sheriff in an amusement park where we sold 3 Ounces of Point Special for a nickle.

Of course nickle beer is gone but both Point, Minhaus and New Glarus are crafting some great new product. Actually both Point and Minhaus brew custom batches for smaller craft labels so technically you can start a company with nothing but a recipe. Finally Deb Carey (New Glarus) may be the most brilliant marketing person on the planet.
