MILWAUKEE – Any self-respecting Wisconsinite knows what goes into their beer.

Tour guides will tell you barley, hops, yeast, and water are the main ingredients. 

It's what you do with them that makes the difference. Just ask Grant Pauly, founder of ‘3 Sheeps Brewing’ in Sheboygan. 

“We always like to say on our worst day, we still get to make beer," Pauly exclaimed. 

Pauly started his small brewery two years ago, trying to break into an already bustling craft beer market.

“When people tell me they don't like craft beer, I have trouble with it because craft beer has just exploded and it means so many different things,” Pauly explained.

“Generally speaking, I think it's just because they haven't found one they like.”

‘3 Sheeps’ is just one of many breweries you'll find represented during Milwaukee Beer Week, which ends Saturday.

Some 200 events, featured at bars and restaurants across the area, give even the most casual beer drinker a chance to taste what's out there.

"You can get different flavors. You can go dark, you can go light. It just really kind of depends, and I think there's something out there for everybody,” said Alexia Cuto, general manager of Milwaukee Beer Bistro.
