In this video from Building Wisconsin TV, we’ll see how members of Steamfitters Local 601 are an integral part of the process of making whiskey at Dancing Goat Distillery. Host Stuart Keith starts at the Local 601 Training Center in Milwaukee with Joel Zielke. Then it’s on to Cambridge WI to meet with Dancing Goat General Mgr. Sean Dotson and Head Distiller & Blender Nick Maas. See how welding done by Local 601 contractor DeGarmo Plumbing & Piping effects the quality of the whiskey and why having highly trained welders is part of their formula for success. Finally, welding instructor Erik Ogren talks about training and the Accelerated Welding Program for experienced welders to join Local 601.
