Wisconsin Tornadoes: Forming as we drive

Ever seen a *roll* cloud? They’re pretty scary. They happen often before nasty tornadoes. Especially in eastern Wisconsin.

There were tornadoes today from this cloud that blew some semis off the highway. Good thing we were.. in an SUV? And safe?

And good thing TAT editor, Ben Britz, was driving. I would have flipped out driving under this thing.

What do you do in Milwaukee? The Miller Beer Brewery Tour!

After driving past this building every time I visit my grandparents in Milwaukee, we decided to finally visit the place.

Miller! I’m not a HUGE fan of the beer, but it does the trick, and the brewery tour is pretty interesting.

We went on a Monday, so production was in full swing.

The stockroom was much, much bigger than could be in one picture. Suffice to say, they replace the entire stock every day and that comes out to 500,000 cases of beer produced and shipped every day. They need a bigger word than “macro” brewery to describe this. It’s a “mundo” brewery, if you can say that.

Then we met the ghost of the original Mr. Miller himself! It was more silly than scary though.

Then they gave us a lot of free beer–precisely what we had in mind! That was our plan the whole time.

I love it when a plan comes together.

It was definitely worth a visit. It’s a good way–the best way!–to spend a Monday morning in Wisconsin.

MMMmmm. Whatever gets you through the day.
