Who doesn't need a beercation? Beer + vacation. Done.
Thrilllist has released its "rundown of the country's seven hottest hubs of barley and hops." And, Milwaukee's on the list.
Here's how they position our city in this list that was published today:
"Despite what you think you know about Milwaukee from watching reruns of Happy Days while Mom was out with her new boyfriend, this city of 1.5m on Lake Michigan has a storied beer history. As in, it was once known as the 'Beer Capital of the World' and housed four of the world's largest breweries – Miller, Blatz, Schlitz, and Pabst. Their baseball team is named the Brewers for God sakes. It's like a beer mecca. Stay at the new Brewhouse Inn & Suites (formerly part of the massive Pabst brewery complex), tour and taste your way through Sprecher, Lakefront and Milwaukee Brewing, and then cab it to Sugar Maple or Palm Tavern in Bay View after dinner at a beer-focused eatery like Hinterland. If you make it out of bed before happy hour the next day, check out Pabst Mansion to see what beer money could get you in 1892. Also, there's a bronze statue of the Fonz, just so you know."
Others on the list? Seacoast, N.H.; Leatherstocking Region, N.Y.; Hill Country, Texas; Beervana, Ore.; Napa Valley of Beer, Colo., and San Diego, Calif.
