Most of our adventures centered around beer drinking-- no surprise. Thanks to the Chicago fire of 1871, Milwaukee became a leader in beer production. And hey. We like beer. Cheers to beer tours! Our last beer tours were in St. Louis with friends, just before B came into the picture. And now, B is 4 months and exploring with us. We're just so humbled.
We drove out Saturday morning and headed to our first stop, Miller Brewing Co. We did the Anheuser Busch tour last year in addition to Schlafly and Ray had previously done the Coors tour in Golden, CO. That's still on my list, as is the New Belgium facility in Fort Collins, CO where they make my favorite beer, Fat Tire.
No stroller allowed. No problem.
Nearing the end of our tour, they took us into this musty cave and then dropped us off in this "inn" that served us our first free beer.

Yelp (always while traveling) and found an excellent Mexican joint, Corazon. It's on a pathway called the Beerline.
After dinner we headed to our hotel and B showed off his amazing tummy time moves without crying.
|Hey Ladies. I'm single. Want my digits?|
We checked out of our hotel in the morning and headed to the lakeshore to walk around and explore. Along this path were some gorgeous homes. Just off the coast is a shipwreck and we saw a couple people paddleboarding and a few others scuba diving around the area. What caused the shipwreck? Intense smog from the factories. Gross.
One of the cooler art sculptures we've seen. I'd like a replica of this.
Our second beer tour, Lakefront Brewery. It was awesome. Craft beer joints are always cooler than the big guys. And they give more (and better tasting) beer.

We heart weekends.
