If you have cable or access to cable, you can watch the premiere of a new show called “Milwaukee Blacksmith” tomorrow (8/23/16) on the History Channel. Named after the actual business name, the show follows Kent Knapp and his family making a living from the art of metalworking. There will 10 30-minute episodes in the first season on the History Channel.
Milwaukee Blacksmith is located in the Third Ward in a warehouse just off Erie Street. Their projects range from beer bottle openers to 6-foot tall ornate fixtures commissioned for some of Milwaukee’s most historic buildings. You can learn more about Knapp and Milwaukee Blacksmith in a story we did back in 2014.
You can watch back to back episodes tonight beginning at 9:00pm. Milwaukee Ale House will host a viewing party beginning at 7:00pm. They will also bring back their Black Iron Ale beer, which is named after Milwaukee Blacksmith.
