PBR (Pabst Blue Ribbon) Mansion (Milwaukee, Wisconsin)


0526181401

After I left the Harley Davidson Museum, I still had some time to see what else Milwaukee had to offer. Fortunatly, 6 minutes away was the PBR Mansion so off I went for new ventures.

The mansion is over 20,000 suare feet, 3 stories, and most is still in original condition with a few minor areas that needed upkeep over the years.

The guided tour look a little over an hour to get through, and our tour guide gave all of us very detailed infornation on the history of the building. Most of the paintings are original, most furniture is original, and the wall paper is mostly original but had to recently have stencil artist fix some areas.

What I thought was interesting that no one knew until our guide pointed it out, is that all of the corner stairway posts had hop structures on the tops.

For $12.00, this is defently a stop to come see if in the area for the beer enthusiast, and the history fans that enjoy these types of places.

I will either be heading to Madison, Wisconsin next to do a brewery touring, or back to Milwaukee to tour the Miller distillery, then brewery hopping. I guess we will see what happens. Have a great day everyone.
