Exploring Milwaukee’s Historic Breweries

Legacies of Milwaukee Brewing

“Milwaukee is today the acknowledged queen of the world in lager beer, the name being familiar in every country, civilized or uncivilized; and her sway universally acknowledged.”  (The Sentinel: July 31, 1892)


This urban archaeology expedition of Milwaukee’s Brewing history will begin at Discovery World  at 9am on Saturday April 17th before boarding a coach bus to explore several of Milwaukee’s downtown brewing gems.  This Distant Mirror adult program is designed to bring the general public into contact with Milwaukee’s brewing history by accessing a variety of locations/facilities associated with the production and consumption of beer.  This includes visiting the locations of former breweries within the Milwaukee area, as well as the infrastructure associated with the brewing industry such as warehouses, stables, rail systems, etc.  Moreover, this expedition will visit modern breweries currently in operation, to tour the facilities, sample their beer and meet head Brewmasters.  Space is limited to the first 50 people to sign up, so don’t wait or the beer bus will leave with out you!!
