The Beer Line Trail

Urban Bike Trail

In Riverwest the abandoned railroad right-of-way that traverses the bluffs on the western banks of the Milwaukee River has long been used by locals and their dogs for quiet, solitary strolls through a forest of ash and cottonwood trees. Once a vital railroad corridor used by the Blatz, Pabst and Schlitz breweries for the delivery of beer, the recently paved asphalt trail is seeing new life as a small but integral vein in Milwaukee’s growing vasculature of routes for non-motorized travel.
