It was ok but after doing several brewery tours on the past few days most of the info was redundant. The cost did come with a free beer but not a lot of selections on tap. Also parking was an issue

We were going to walk the river walk and saw this pub and restaurant and decide to eat. They had a wide beer selection and the food was very good. The atmosphere was lively and fun! Prices were reasonable.

Hello Barbara, Thanks for coming to Brew City MKE Beer Museum. We were thrilled to host the Chamber Theatre event. The ribbons are interesting in that they were won after the blue ribbons would have appeared on the bottles which was simply a marketing tactic.A...More
