Milwaukee is undoubtedly “Beer City” or “Brew-Town,” with around 20 breweries of all sizes and hundreds of beers. We want to know what the most popular Milwaukee-made beer is.
In the spirit of the big tournament going on now, we made a bracket of our own: the FM106.1 Brewtown Throwdown.We searched far and wide and drank many beers to settle on the top 16. These beers can be found at any grocery store, and most are available at Milwaukee fish frys. We’ve broken them into 4 regions:
1. The Classics: classic Milwaukee beers that made the city famous: Miller Lite, Pabst Blue Ribbon, Milwaukee High Life, and Schlitz
2. The Dark Side of the Brew: the darker beers: Milwaukee Brewing Company Louie's Demise, Lakefront Riverwest Stein, Lakefront Fuel Cafe and Sprecher Black Bavarian
3. IPA All Day: the city’s most popular hop forward brews: Lakefront Fixed Gear, Good City Motto, Lakefront IPA, and Milwaukee Brewing Company Hop Happy
4. Strange Brew: featuring some off-the-wall beers with different ingredients: Leinenkugel's Summer Shandy (lemon shandy), Milwaukee Brewing Company Weekend at Louie's (blueberry amber), Lakefront Black Friday (Imperial Stout) and Milwaukee Brewing Company O-Gii (IPA with Rishi Tea)
Vote for your favorite! Good luck to the brewers. May the best beer win!
