An April 9 Associated Press story written by Carrie Antlfinger that initially appeared on and inside the Travel pages of the print edition is making its way across the country and the globe.  

In the days since the piece ran, the story -- titled "Milwaukee still loves beer, but museum and festivals are on tap too" -- has traveled to more than 40 other media entities including,, the Sky Valley Journal in Wyoming and the Vancouver Sun.

The positive tourist destination story showcases many area attractions and ends with this quote from historian John Gurda, "By no means are we doomed to forever be beer and brats," Gurda said. "Books and ballet are part of it. That message will, in incremental steps, get out as well."

The reach of AP affiliates and the Web, in general, should help continue the positive buzz of this Milwaukee piece.  Read it at the link below.
