Milwaukee, Wis., Aug.20—Celebrating 115 years of freedom and the city’s most-iconic brand, Milwaukee-based craft breweries—Third Space Brewing, Good City Brewing and Milwaukee Brewing Co.—developed the Harley-Davidson 115th Anniversary Milwaukee Lager. The crisp, balanced, hand-crafted beer is set to debut over Labor Day weekend during Harley-Davidson 115th Anniversary Milwaukee Celebration.
