Welcome to the Museum of Beer and Brewing

The Museum of Beer & Brewing is a not-for-profit organization working to build a museum (both virtual and physical) to preserve and display the proud history of beer and brewing throughout the world; the science, art, architecture and traditions that have shaped our culture for thousands of years.

Milwaukee Historical Society turns a popular beer exhibit into a permanent one.

"The Milwaukee County Historical Society has moved a popular brewing exhibit into The Shops of Grand Avenue — where you'll be able to get a beer with your history lesson. The idea is for visitors to come in, look around and leave with some knowledge of Milwaukee's brewing roots. A bonus is that the museum's $10 entry fee includes a beer at the Milwaukee Beer Bar".
"The last surviving building from the old Gettelman Brewery, established on Milwaukee's west side in 1856, is being demolished. MillerCoors owns the 19th-century building where Gettelman once brewed $1000 Beer and Milwaukee's Best".
