The May edition of Food & Wine has a nice toast to Milwaukee in an article from Jim Meehan.
Meehan says he used to visit "Milwaukee once a year when (he) went to college in Wisconsin, mainly to check out sausage races at County Stadium (now Miller Park) and earn (his) "I closed Wolski's" bumper sticker. But now, (he) goes there for the cocktails."
And, who can blame him? His piece toasts our city "known for Pabst Blue Ribbon and Schlitz" but says Milwaukee also "has a surprisingly awesome cocktail culture." Of course, we already know this.
He mentions Bryant's, Distil (one of his "best bars in America"), Great Lakes Distillery, The Hamilton and Bittercube.
