In Chicago, $7 will buy you a sandwich and...and...yep, just the sandwich. A mediocre one. Maybe you'll get some little mustard packets. In Milwaukee, $7 will buy you a heck of a lot more. Enter Lakefront Brewery, stage left. Adam and I spent last weekend in Milwaukee and kicked it off with a stop at this fine establishment.
These guys had us from hello:
- They gave us beer BEFORE the tour.
- Beer drinking along the way was encouraged.
- Plenty of raunchy jokes from the tour guide
- Pit stop along the way for more beer (I tried the Cream City Pale Ale...also delicious).
At the end of the tour, they let us out onto a patio to chill out and enjoy being along the river on a beautiful day.
When they had me thinking it could not get any better, I got to exchange my plastic cup for a free pint glass. Yipee! One more for my collection - Wisconsin!
Milwaukee - One.
Chicago - Zip.
