We’ll ease into our last day with a private tour of the Milwaukee Art Museum, followed by a cheese tasting inspired by the Museum’s European collection. Then, some personal time to wander the city. We’ll reconvene for a private brewery tour and beer and cheese pairing and then we’re off to a raclette speakeasy for a last communal dinner to toast our adventures in cheese.
