1 No, I am not a traitor to Milwaukee beer, but I just had to see how this tour stacks up with Miller. Tough to decide - I like the Miller multi-media show and the caves, but AB had the Clydesdales, a nicer walk outside and they served their beer in glass.
2 Jan checks the beer belly - not built on Bud, but Miller!
