Day 273 - Exploring Milwaukee with My Friend: The Birthplace of Harley-Davidson

Updated: Feb 14

Day 273 (01 Oct 2023) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA

 

DAY 273 (01 OCT 2023) – In the evening, Mr Kartik and I headed to the city to explore Milwaukee.


We visited the Harley-Davidson Museum and show room. However, we couldn’t go inside since it had closed at 5 pm.


2023 marks 120 years of this legendary motorcycle company which was founded in 1903 by William Harley and Arthur Davidson. The first Harley-Davidson factory was a backyard shed behind the Davidson family home.


The company headquarters stands today at the same location where the shed once stood. There is a 1903 replica of the 10x15ft shed on display at the museum.


Located near the Harley Davidson Museum is the Great Lakes Distillery.


We decided to go for a distillery tour at this place founded in 2004, also known as Wisconsin’s original small-batch distillery.


Although I am a teetotaller, I enjoyed the informative tour of the distillery and learning about the grain-to-glass distillation process where they use a lot of local ingredients to make original local craft spirits.
