It's cheap, and it's expensive, respectively.

Who knows why they choose WI when they came from the Czechoslovakia (then). A Czech population in that town? The midwest has pretty crappy water. Michigan, WI and other states here make some good beer though.

RO would be an improvement. Some breweries go to that for quality.

That portion of NE Wisconsin has a really high Bohemian population. (I grew up there.) Presumably, they ended up there with all the other immigrants.
Edit: The population is even higher a bit closer to Lake Michigan. Cool maps.
