List Rules Beers brewed in or near Milwaukee only.

While the city is heavily associated with the Miller Company, there are far more Milwaukee beers to choose from if you find yourself in Wisconsin. Despite its relatively small size in comparison to urban enclaves like New York and Los Angeles, Milwaukee has a surprisingly large amount of breweries that create meticulously crafted lagers and ales for their loyal patrons. Wondering what beers to try in Milwaukee? You've come to the right place! 

Even if it's not your cup of tea, Miller remains one of the most popular Milwaukee beers. While now known nationwide, the company remains loyal to its Midwestern roots and is still headquartered in Milwaukee. However, if you prefer more independent brews, there are plenty of more obscure beers to try. From Lakefront Brewery to Good City Brewing, there are a lot of great tasting beers throughout the city.
