“And don’t think the garden loses its ecstasy in winter. It’s quiet, but the roots are down there riotous.”

“By 1870 Madison had ten times the population of Sauk City (10,000 vs. 1000) and supported five breweries. Sauk City also had five breweries, although smaller in size. Mathias Leinenkugel established Sauk City’s first brewery in 1846.” The Sauk City Brewery, as shown here in 1910, was one of the five breweries. Built in the 1850s, it was the longest operating brewery in town, finally closing during Prohibition in the 1920s. --Jack Berndt - Sauk Prairie Area Historical Society.
