A common nickname for Milwaukee is Brew City. From the mid-19th century, a large number of skilled German brewers and farmers settled in this part of Wisconsin, bringing their love of beer. At the height of Milwaukee’s brewery heyday, four of the largest beer manufacturing companies were headquartered in this city: Miller, Pabst, Schlitz and Blatz. Now, with the rise of craft brewing, several new local breweries are supplying the city with amazing new varieties of “liquid bread.” Here are four of those craft breweries continuing the legacy of Brew City.
