An easy 75-mile drive from Chicago, Milwaukee is the perfect weekend getaway from the bustling city. While MKE is a city in its own right, it’s more spread out and the traffic is lighter, making it more manageable to get around.
Here’s an itinerary for 24 hours in Milwaukee. Eat your greek yogurt at home, then hop in the car for a whirlwind tour of Brew City.
Tour of Sprecher Brewing Co.
Originally started as a brewery, Sprecher is now most well-known for their tasty root beer. This 30-minute tour is short, sweet, and offers 4 tasters with your $6 ticket. Drafts include radlers, seasonal beers, hard craft sodas, alcohol-free sodas, and all sorts of your regular brew taps.
