The Minhas Craft Brewery in Monroe, Wisconsin is the Midwest’s oldest brewery and the second oldest in the entire nation! Surviving the depression, prohibition, brushes with the mob and two major fires, today Minhas stands as one of the top ten largest breweries in America. We’ll tour the brewery with a tasting, then have a few hours on your own to explore the Beer Memorabilia Museum, visit the Distillery or Winery, browse the quaint shops on the square, and partake of some fabulous food (on your own) in the Cheese Capital of the world.
NOTE: 4-6 block walk required from Minhas to the Square
Have you ever wondered how those homes around a beautiful lake get their mail delivered? Well, now you can experience lake house mail delivery first hand! Join us as we embark on a US Mailboat Tour around magnificent Lake Geneva! We will board the Walworth and enjoy a 2½ hour narrated historical tour around the entire lake, interrupted only by the heart-pounding, nail biting excitement of the young folks jumping off the boat, delivering the mail, and jumping back aboard before they “run out of dock”! After all that excitement and beautiful scenery, we’ll find our way (walking across the street) to the ever popular Popeye’s-Lake Geneva for a fabulous lunch of their world famous rotisserie chicken and fixins! (*If you need vegetarian option please call our office (815) 921-3900 after you register. After lunch you’ll have about 1½ hours to browse the lovely unique shops in downtown Lake Geneva. Hope you’ll join us on this exciting adventure!
