To really experience old world charm and Gemütlichkeit at its finest, join us for the only beer history tour in Milwaukee. The roots of the Pabst Brewing Co. run deep in Milwaukee's proud brewing history. Relive this colorful history as you learn how the Best and Pabst families grew the Pabst Brewery to become America's largest brewery by 1874. After battling for decades to keep this title, Pabst began a slide and loss of market share in the late 1970's that led to the brewery's closing in 1996.

Be transported back in time as our tour moves through historic Blue Ribbon Hall, the brewery offices, Visitors Center (Sternewirt) & infirmary. Our entertaining one hour tour includes a pint of Pabst, Andeker, 10 Wisconsin craft or a root beer. Best Place is open year-round for tours and they are kid-friendly.

Your tour would not be complete without a visit to our Gift Shop. Shop from our selection of new and vintage Pabst family brands including; Pabst, Schlitz, Blatz, Old Style, Stroh's, Lone Star, Olympia & more. We also carry a wide range of vintage lights, coasters, mirrors, neons and glassware.
