About Milwaukee

Milwaukee is the state's largest city, its primary commercial and manufacturing center and one of its busiest ports, as well as a major grain market. Called the "machine shop of America," Milwaukee ranks among the nation's principal industrial cities and is a leader in the production of equipment for the generation and distribution of electrical power. Factories also manufacture motorcycles, mining machinery and combustion engines.

But what really has made Milwaukee famous is beer. Though other industries have dethroned the king since 1889, the brewing industry remains synonymous with the city. Besides the ubiquitous smell of malt in the air, associations with brewing are everywhere. Wealthy brewers and other industrialists built lavish houses, some of which have been converted to public museums. One of the nation's largest breweries has its headquarters in Milwaukee.

Although modern steel and glass high rises occupy much of the downtown area, Milwaukee's European heritage is evident in the design of some of the city's noteworthy buildings and residences. The blue-domed Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church, a magnificent example of Byzantine architecture at 9400 W. Congress St., came from the drawing board of Frank Lloyd Wright. While the interior of the church is not open for tours, the exterior is more than worth a drive from any part of the city.

City Hall and Pabst Theater, both built in the 1890s in the Flemish Renaissance style, have been preserved carefully. Residents also embrace the return of a few old German cafes and beer gardens, where zither music is played and sauerbraten is served with the suds.
