The Chetek Chain of Lakes is a popular, navigable chain of six lakes in Barron County including Chetek, Moose Ear, Ojaski, Pokegama, Prairie and Ten Mile. The chain is well-known for quality panfish and largemouth bass - heavily utilized by anglers and recreational boaters. No-wake areas are posted under all bridges and channel areas. Prairie Lake is noted for its floating and submergent bogs. The entire chain of lakes are soft-water drainage lakes with their water level held by the dam located between Lake Chetek and the Chetek River. The fish population in the lakes include northern pike, walleye, large and small mouth bass, bluegill, black crappie, perch, bullhead, and rock bass.
The Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Company, a subsidiary of MillerCoors, is an American beer maker based in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin. Leinenkugel was historically distributed only in the Upper Midwest, but is now available throughout all 50 states. The company is the seventh oldest brewery in the United States, and the oldest business in Chippewa Falls. The brewery was founded in Chippewa Falls in May 1867 by Prussian immigrant Jacob Mathias Leinenkugel (1842-1899) and John Miller, making it the seventh oldest brewery in the United States. The original beer brewed, which historically made up 90% of company production, was based on a formula Leinenkugel brought with him from Germany. The company is the oldest operating business in Chippewa Falls.
Miller sold his stake in the company in 1884. During Prohibition, the company produced near beer (known as "Leino") as well as soda water. With the repeal of Prohibition, Jacob Leinenkugel's daughters mortgaged their homes to fund the restoration of the company's beer brewing vats. The Leinenkugel brewery expanded from its local roots beginning in the 1970s, when it first introduced its light beer. The family-owned brewery was sold in 1988 to Philip Morris subsidiary Miller Brewing Company in an effort to stay solvent. In an unprecedented move at the time, Miller kept the Leinenkugel family on to run its operation.
After several attempts to bring the beer to national U.S. markets, Miller succeeded in 2007 with the addition of a Summer Shandy ale to the Leinenkugel product line. The company has since become well known for its sweeter beers and shandies, with nine out of ten shandies consumed in the United States being brewed by Leinenkugel. On October 11, 2016, SABMiller sold its stake in MillerCoors for around US $12 billion after the company was acquired by Anheuser-Busch InBev, making Molson Coors the 100 per cent owner of MillerCoors. As of 2016, the brewery has distribution outlets in all 50 states and its president is still a family member, Dick Leinenkugel. For the company's 150th anniversary, it created a special, "old style" German beer, which was actually brewed by license in Germany.
