Craft brewery tour of Southwest Wisconsin

This article is an itinerary.

This is an itinerary for a tour of craft breweries in and around the Southwest Wisconsin region.


Southwest Wisconsin, originally home to large German and Swiss immigrant groups, has a rich history of beer brewing. As a result, a number of breweries have developed in the region representing a number of types and styles. A quality beer tour could let you sample a number of types or explore the many variations of a single style, and Wisconsin breweries can readily meet the wants of both casual drinkers and seasoned beer aficionados.


Whenever taking a brewery tour, the most important thing is to be sure that you can travel safely. Pick a designated driver, spread the tour over a few days or plan ahead to include time for everyone to sober up before driving.

Of course, be sure to carry photographic identification to prove your age such as a driver's license, passport or non-driver ID when buying alcohol.
