Photo a Day Challenge


The character Nicolas C. Point stands beside the Point Brewery gift shop in Stevens Point, WI.  Nicolas is based on an actual brewery employee from the 19th century . . . although we were told his head did not always look like this. The Point Brewery is American’s fourth oldest brewery in continuous operation.
