“It’s Miller Time”: Three Guys Having a Beer in Milwaukee, Wisconsin

miller-time

This Cabinet card depicts three guys out for a beer. They look like they are going to do some serious drinking and have a pitcher ready on the floor for refilling their glasses. The photograph was taken by F. W. Streit of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. How appropriate! Milwaukee is and was the unofficial beer capitol of the United States. The city was once the home to four of the world’s largest breweries and was the number one beer producing city in the world for many years.
