With the craft beer industry really taking off as it has been, keeping this roadtrip guide to the breweries of Wisconsin is no simple task. Since the publishing of the first edition of Wisconsin’s Best Beer Guide a handful of breweries have either gone out of business or changed names/owners. But more importantly a whole bunch of new Wisconsin breweries have opened throughout the state, filling in gaps in “beer coverage.” For this, I give you the new and improved and fully updated Wisconsin’s Best Beer Guide, 3rd Edition. The first had just over 70 breweries, the second, 90-plus; this updated Wisconsin beer guide has over 130 breweries!.

And like its predecessors, Wisconsin’s Best Beer Guide still has the special offers corresponding to passport-style signatures you can get in your book when you visit each brewery. And as before, most of these offers are for FREE BEER!
Listen to Author Kevin Revolinski talk about Wisconsin beer on The Joy Cardin Show on Wisconsin Public Radio’s Ideas Network.
A few more beer-related attractions have been added as well, such as the new Pabst Brewery going into the former former church at the old brewery, to go along with The Brewhouse Inn & Suites and Best Place nearby.
Inside Wisconsin’s Best Beer Guide you will find:
- Listings for all breweries and brewpubs from the big-time MillerCoors in Milwaukee all the way down to the little 12-barrel-per-year brewery in De Pere.
- Brewery listings include directions, brewery info, the story of the place, food options, and more
- Special Offers, often for free beer or other discounts at most breweries
- Stumbling Distance: 2 or 3 great beer bars, fish fries, curds etc. nearby that you shouldn’t miss if you’ve made the trip
- Listings for festivals, homebrew shops
- Several museums and historic tours
- Breweries reachable by bike trail, bus tour, or brew cruise
- A history of beer in Wisconsin
- Lots of little facts and explanations about beer, how it’s made, and even how to drink it (as if you didn’t know already)
Suitable for the beer curious or beer snobs alike, Wisconsin’s Best Beer Guide leads you on a pils-grimage to find all the Wisconsin-made beer in its natural habitat.
