Badger Bars & Tavern Tales
An Illustrated History of Wisconsin Saloons Northwoods Reader

by Bill Moen and Doug Davis

Badger Bars & Tavern Tales
Journey back to the days when neighborhood taverns were the social hubs of all small towns. Relive the days when wild revelry was the norm. Old newspaper articles and photos are highlighted throughout the book. Interviews with "old-timers" give a personal glimpse into the days when Wisconsin was wild. Taverns and towns throughout the state are featured.

Let's just say that the significance of taverns and the associated drinking culture, integral components of the societal history of Wisconsin, is a topic that lacks a comprehensive and intelligent study. Until someone does that, this book will have to do. In the meantime, pour yourself a cold one and look through this chronicle of places filled with smoke, jokes, the music of jukeboxes, and of times less stressful, more casual and less sober. We hope you enjoy your time spent here, in the words of Buttsy and Evie, "Your Pleasure, Our Success."
