It might be like the one at Best Place in the old Pabst Brewery. Or, if the song is right, and “in Heaven there is no beer, that’s why we drink it here,” then you better just visit this one while you can. In addition to the gift shop (and just as good or better) is the the Best Place bar and the tour you can take. We checked it all out Saturday and thought it was pretty awesome. Being that the original Pabst Brewery closed in 1996 (pour some of that tall boy out in remembrance) I never got to take a tour there. It sounded pretty sweet though – so to experience even just a little bit of that history in this new incarnation of the brewery was still fun. For me it was a great combination of Milwaukee, history, beer, and a gift shop full of new and old (found in the brewery) souvenirs. Oh yeah, and some guy playing a Lute singing the Police’s “Message in a Bottle” but with the words “PBR in a Bottle” – that was entertaining too.
