Hussa Brewery Slated For Demolition In Bangor, WI

Posted by Bob Skilnik on July 24, 2008

Here Today; Gone Tomorrow...The Hussa BreweryIt all began in 1860 when Joseph Hussa and his family moved to Bangor from Watertown. A Czechoslovakian brewmaster trained in Prague, Hussa had emigrated to Wisconsin in 1849. And in 2008, the former Hussa Brewery, old and battered, will meet its end.

I just hate when these breweries go down like this, with no one to somehow, someway, salvage them for future use.

And in Wisconsin, of all places.

    I took part in the demolition of the old Hussa brewery in Bangor, Wisconsin and know first hand that the place would not have been suitable for any type of renovation. I would have liked to see it restored though as well. I believe that erasing things from history is horrible but also sometimes necessary.
