Of course, Milwaukee made this list

Dara Continenza of has a list on/in today's USA Today that trumpets the "10 best beer cities in the world." 

And, of course, Milwaukee's high on the list. Continenza doesn't even include references to the 1970's TV series "Laverne and Shirley" in his description of Milwaukee.  Progress!

Milwaukee, Wisconsin

What to See: With a baseball team called the Brewers, is it any surprise Milwaukee is so crazy for beer? Milwaukee was once home to the "Big Four:" Pabst, Schlitz, Miller, and Blatz. Now the city houses a sophisticated craft-beer scene that builds on its rich brewing heritage. You can still visit the MillerCoors brewery, which features a free walking tour, but don't miss the Sprecher and Lakefront microbreweries. (While most tours promise a frosty draft only at the end, Lakefront offers you a beer—and a souvenir pint glass—the minute you walk in the door.)

Enjoy the full list here.  

Three other American cities, by the way, made the list. Can you guess them?

Missed one: Milwaukee Brewing Co tours are awesome. Right in the heart of Walker's Point.
