Ten Reasons We Love Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Milwaukee is a famous Midwestern American city with lots of enticing, interesting activities to offer. Its heritage of German immigrant beer brewers including Pabst and Miller makes it a little taste of Bavaria right here in the U.S. Or so we’ve read, as none of us at IRR has ever actually visited the city, although Bavaria’s quite lovely.

Nevertheless as big fans of beer we feel qualified to sing its praises in advance of the upcoming Milwaukee Indyfest.  We figure any place other than Palookaville, OH is a vast improvement.  So we look forward to the IndyCar race in Milwaukee with high hopes and culinary anticipation dripping from our taste buds.
