Highlighted are the creativity of Milwaukee’s big breweries, who restructured their production lines for snow plows, malt syrup, and cheese; the selective enforcement of Prohibition from Milwaukee’s government; and the ways in which local citizens responded to a law that significantly impacted their livelihood and way of life.
