Once the sunny season arrives, people everywhere saw cars in half or affix an extra warm-weather wheel to the family unicycle. Quench summertime thirst for dual-wheeled action with today's Groupon. For $20, you get a Pub Spin microbrewery tour from Brew City Bike Tours, a $43 value. Tours roll out from Crank Daddy’s Bicycle Works at 1 p.m. and run Wednesday through Sunday from April to October.
Brew City Bike Tours offers pedal-pushing participants an opportunity to experience the city and its bountiful beer offerings on two wheels without welding a keg to the back of a tandem bike. Tour participants will glean illuminating knowledge about Milwaukee’s brewing past (it was once home to four of the world's largest breweries) while sampling some of the city’s most notable microbrews. Each tour lasts approximately 3.5 hours and includes two to three samples of beer at three different stops. When logistically possible, one stop will be a tour of Lakefront Brewery, a microbrewery housed in a former Milwaukee Electric Railway and Light Co. power plant. Bike rentals are not included in this Groupon, so thirsty adventurers should bring their own bike, rent one for an extra charge ($31.68), or attempt to commandeer a wild bronco. BYOHelmet too; they're required for the tour.
The joys of riding a bicycle are many and beloved by many. Smells, which are dulled to undetectable levels in four-wheeled transit, are piquant from the fresh-air perch of a bicycle seat. The scenery of the country or of the city—its alleyways, byways, and other quaint little ways—comes to life in a colorful panorama of shops, sidewalk folk, nature birds, and little dogs. Soak in the vibrant cityscape, as well as savory sips of palatable brews, with today’s Groupon to Brew City Bike Tours.
Participants must be 21 years old to drink.
