Did you know that at one point, in the early 1870s, Chicago brewer Conrad Seipp led the United States in beer production? This was short lived however as the death of his business partner and competition from those industrious brewers “up north” changed the American brewing landscape forever, making Milwaukee the Beer Capital of the World.

Desimone will give an overview of the Seipp Brewing Company as well as Black Point Estate and Gardens, the Seipp summer residence that is now a historic house museum operated by the Wisconsin Historical Society.

Dave Desimone is the director of Black Point Estate and Gardens. Dave holds a bachelor’s degree in history from Youngstown State University and a master’s degree in public history from Kent State University. Desimone has held prior positions with the Ohio Historical Society, Stan Hywet Hall and Gardens and the Cleveland Botanical Garden before moving to Wisconsin in 2013.
