SPLASH!: A Celebration of Water Conservation and Craft Brewing at Discovery World Museum,
Milwaukee,
October 26, 2009

Local "craft" businesses such as breweries and specialty cheese making and local restaurants can collaborate on local celebrations of "local business".  When combined around a water conservation theme, or an energy conservation theme...you can educate while providing valuable marketing opportunities for local businesses.

One such celebration is being developed in Milwaukee:

SPLASH!, a celebration of conservation and craft brewing, presents craft beer and cheese tastings and dinner catered by Bartolotta's at the Discovery World Museum, Pier Wisconsin, Milwaukee, WI, on Monday, October 26, 5-8 PM.

The event features representatives from leading conservation groups, artisan cheesemakers with sustainable operations, and craft brewers.

The special guest speaker is Jake Leinenkugel, president of the Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Co., Chippewa Falls, WI, the Platinum sponsor of the Great Lakes Craft Brewers & Water Conservation Conference, with in-kind support from Beer Capitol Distributing, Inc.

SPLASH! is the public portion of the Great Lakes Craft Brewers & Water Conservation Conference, which brings together water policymakers in the Great Lakes and experts in water-saving systems from Bridgeport Brewing Co. (Jeff Edgerton), New Glarus Brewing Co. (Dan Carey), Odell Brewing Co. (Doug Odell) and Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. (Fred Strachan). Guests at SPLASH! will be able to meet and mingle with the craft brewers attending the conference.

Artisan cheesemakers that will be present at the event include Crave Bros. Cheese Company of Waterloo, WI; Saxon Farmstead Creamery of Cleveland, WI; and the Cedar Grove Cheese Company, with a display about the biodynamic "Living Machine" wastewater treatment developed by cheesemaker Bob Wills.

Several conservation groups, such as Clean Wisconsin, Gathering Waters Conservancy, Milwaukee Riverkeepers, Shedd Aquarium's Great Lakes Conservation program Listen to Your Lakes, and the National Wildlife Federation, will showcase conservation tips and tools. The Shedd Aquarium will give away free shower timers made of 100% recycled plastic. This tool helps you shorten your morning ablutions to five minutes or fewer, to save water at home.

The event includes a buffet dinner catered by Bartolotta's Catering, with recipes from "The Best of American Beer & Food" cookbook (Brewers Association, 2007). Tickets for the event are $45 each; purchase with PayPal online, at http://www.conserve-greatlakes.com, or prepaid by check made payable to: F&B Communications LLC, and mailed to Lucy Saunders, F&B Communications LLC, 4230 N. Oakland Ave. #178, Shorewood, WI 53211.
