Christmas Cheer and the Barons of Beer

Collect a whole set of Brad and Lynn Craig's Christmas cards and you'll have a history of Wisconsin beer-making.

For more than a decade, the Muskego couple have been mailing Christmas cards to their friends, bearing a photo of themselves next to the headstone of some great early Wisconsin beer baron or another.

Last year's card -- the 12th in the series -- captured the Craigs at the Madison gravesite of Peter Fauerbach (1831-1886), patriarch of the near-east-side brewery that bore his name until it went out of business in 1966. [Link]
