Things Brewing at Old World Wisconsin

Old World Wisconsin, a 576-acre interactive outdoor living history museum that has 65 relocated historic Wisconsin buildings and many hands-on activities, has plans in the works to build a brewery and biergarten by 2020.

In the meantime, Old World Wisconsin is partnering with the Museum of Beer and Brewing to offer brewing programs this year on May 20, and June 3 from 10am-5pm. Equipment and techniques from the late 1800s and heirloom hops and barley grown at Old World Wisconsin will be used.

The historic Waukesha County Museum building is going through a transformation and is expected to reopen later this year with more regular hours for admission. The Waukesha County Museum is currently open Friday 10am-4pm and Saturday 10am-2pm or by appointment.


Casa del Rio Back by Popular Demand

Casa del Rio had been a local favorite for Mexican food in Waukesha for many years. After closing late last year for a short time they have reopened with the help of the original owners and new business partners. The menu will remain mostly the same with a few new additions including more soups and a small all-day breakfast menu. Inside the restaurant, new décor and lighting have been added. Casa del Rio will hold Margarita Fest on May 19 and 20, which is a fundraiser for the Humane Animal Welfare Society, featuring live music and festivities.
