- Sprecher Brewery of Glendale has created a special label for its root beer that will be served as part of Gov. Scott Walker’s “Beer and Brat Summit” with state legislators Tuesday at the governor’s mansion in Madison.
The label has an American flag as a backdrop with an inset of a Wisconsin map with the words “Moving Wisconsin Forward” and the June 12, 2012, summit date.
After his win in the June 5 recall election, Walker invited members of both political parties and their staff to attend. The governor’s office said 98 legislators — 37 Democrats, 60 Republicans and one independent — and 236 staff are planning to attend.
The event will be closed to the public and the news media.
“We’ve got some fantastic, authentic Wisconsin products that we will be sharing with legislators of both political parties and their staff,” Walker said in a press release. “I am hopeful this get-together will forge relationships that will make it easier to work together to help create jobs.”
In addition to Sprecher, numerous Wisconsin employers donated food, beverages and supplies for the event.
Brats will be provided by Trig’s grocery, the Brat Stop and Usinger’s. Beer will be provided by MillerCoors, Sconnie Beer and Title Town Brewing Co. Soft drinks and water will come from Coca Cola Refreshments, Pepsi of Madison and Dr. Pepper/Snapple.
Other donations will include: Italian sausage, cheddarwurst and buns from Sardiono Brothers Sausage; bison burgers, bison bratwurst and jalapeno cheddar from Northstar Bison; hamburgers from Roundy’s Supermarkets; brownies, cookies, veggie burgers and cheese from Sendik’s Food Markets; and iced tea and juice from Kwik Trip.
In addition, State Rep. Travis Tranel
(R-Cuba City) will supply Potosi Beer.
