From Milwaukee’s legendary beer barons to modern-day micro-brews, beer has a rich history in Wisconsin.

And it’s become a major tourist attraction. Visitors love the brewery tours, sampling different styles of beer.

Few places in the Midwest have a more colorful assortment of locally-produced craft beers.

But a fascinating exhibit takes you back to the past – when a few massive breweries dominated the market.

And don’t forget to visit the Beer Baron Cemetery.
