Home to some of the country’s biggest breweries (most notably Pabst and Miller) and set firmly in the heart of America’s Dairyland, Milwaukee is commonly known for its great beer and cheese. Here, history buffs can tour the original—and still operational—Pabst Brewing Company, and view the industry’s powerful legacy in places like the historic Pabst Theatre. And with the city’s up-and-coming generation drawing from Wisconsin’s rich farming culture to bolster a thriving locavore movement, the industrious/delicious tradition lives on. We’ve rounded out our must-see list with a few nostalgic bars and eateries.
