My husband, Randal (Randy) Sprecher, started Sprecher Brewing Company in 1985. It is the first brewery established in Milwaukee since Prohibition.
Randy moved to Milwaukee to brew for Pabst. He’d been a homebrewer for many years then studied fermentation science at UC-Davis, which is where Pabst found him.

Sprecher is located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and are as well known for their great craft beers as their delicious sodas. I especially enjoy their famous root beer in a homemade float. Mmm!
