Milwaukee has been a leader in the craft beer and brewing industry since the 19th century. This tradition continues today, with both major beer companies — like Miller — and clusters of lively, independent gastropubs contributing to the beer lover’s paradise.

This versatility transcends across Milwaukee’s many breweries, making for an eclectic tour.

Milwaukee derives much of its charm from its natural, lakeshore surroundings. The Milwaukee RiverWalk District, the city’s main pedestrian walkway, combines these gorgeous views with quirky, local commerce.
