3. We know there’s more to MKE than just cheese and brats
The food pyramid in your city extends to custard, fish frys, ribs, pierogi, pretzel rolls, and venison. There are many layers to the onion known as Milwaukee’s food scene, an onion that’s been sliced up, deep-fried, and served alongside a sweet, sweet butter burger.
4. That said, cheese and brats make for a formidable foundation
We’re not crazy -- we firmly belief tubed meats and cheddar make every cookout, tailgate, and job interview a much better experience.
5. We been admiring you from down South for a while now
Our Chicago editors have taken notice of your food and drink scene (it's hard not to notice things like a whole-fried-chicken Bloody Mary) and they’re secretly a little jealous. Actually, Thrillist Milwaukee will mark our fourth Midwestern edition after Chicago, Detroit, and Minneapolis, so you’re deservedly getting a Thrillist edition before Madison, St. Louis, and any place close to Ohio or Iowa.
6. We look forward to entering a new beer mecca
It’s pretty evident that the Brew City has evolved past canned, industrial-flavored beers in favor of greener craft-beer pastures courtesy of breweries like Sprecher, Lakefront, and Milwaukee Brewing Company. Whether you’re jonesing for a coffee stout, tiring of IPAs, or being an all-around beer snob, we’ll find the cure for what ails you.
