The leaves are changing colors, the air is getting crisp…it’s Fall in Milwaukee! Aside from the beautiful colors and chilly weather, there are plenty of Fall events going on throughout our city! Between pumpkin picking, trying out Oktoberfest Beers, and keeping up with all the sports, there is always something to do!
Pumpkin beer is traditional this time of year, but our statewide breweries including Lakefront Brewery, New Glarus, Milwaukee Brewing Co. and many more; have Oktoberfest lagers that will take the traditional pumpkin beer to the next level. Next time you’re at a bar or your local grocery store, be sure to try out one of these delicious Oktoberfest beers that will definitely put you in the Fall mood!
Fall Foliage, Apple Orchards & Pumpkin Picking…the perfect activities to do with the family! Bundle up the kids and head out for a day of exploring!
