The Best Things to Eat and Drink in Wisconsin
Wisconsin calls itself “America’s Dairyland,” and it takes the responsibility seriously. That, combined with its large German and Irish populations, means that hearty meat-and-potatoes cuisine rules — perfect for those long, dark winter months. Needless to say, it’s pretty tough to determine the best steakhouse in the state or best burger, but we’ve done that and more as part of our second annual guide to the best food and drink in every state.
There is another area where the state famously excels: beer. The birthplace of Pabst Blue Ribbon and Miller beer has enjoyed a flowering of smaller craft breweries in recent years.
Over the course of the past year we’ve honored everything from its best hot dogs and fried chicken to its best bar and craft beer in our comprehensive and wide-ranging lists and rankings, compiled through extensive research and with input from a wide network of site contributors, bloggers, journalists, and chefs. We’ve compiled these into individual slideshows celebrating the best food and drink in every state, and you can find our Wisconsin gallery here.
