You can enjoy two 16-ounce pours during the tour and will get a souvenir pint glass to mark your experience! The Bavarian Bierhaus and City Lights Brewing Company also shine as two of the city’s “beerst” brewery tour experiences. 

River cruise it: In the mood for a city river cruise? Milwaukee Boat Line’s double-decker Vista King and Voyageur are your best vessels. Enjoy Monday Yacht Rock cocktail specials and live music on select summer nights aboard the Vista King. The Voyageur is a smooth-sailing modern expedition yacht that features a full-service bar and an open-air top deck. If it’s a private cruise you seek, all aboard the Quinn Marie!
