Our History

The Milwaukee County Historical Society's vast collection of Milwaukee beer and brewing history was on public display in 2016 and was very popular. People came from all over to see artifacts, images and memorabilia and to see the roots behind Milwaukee's nickname: Brew City.


By popular demand, the exhibit has returned, but with a twist. Come see for yourself why Brew City MKE is Milwaukee's beer heritage destination. Guests are welcome to explore Milwaukee's beer history through the exhibit and to raise a glass to our great town - fondly known as Brew City! The exhibit will be on display during this one year pilot experience and a bar featuring Milwaukee brews will be available.
