Barons highlighted at this event are Ignatz & Joseph Uhrig, Otto Stifel, Julius Winkelmeyer, Edward Hempstead, and John Endres.   

Step back in with time with us as we celebrate our resident barons with walking tours though the Cemetery, great food, music, and samples of beer, spirits, and wine. Engage with experts from local breweries and distilleries about time honored techniques of their trades and gain a deeper appreciation of their time-honored craft.
