Slang term for Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Originally came of use when the city was home to four of the largest breweries in the United States (Miller, Pabst, Blatz & Schlitz).
Today, brewing only represents a fraction of the city's economy as only Miller continues to operate. As such, the term Brew City is considered by many to be outdated as the younger generations prefer terms such as "Mil Town," "Cream City," and "The Mil." In fact, saying "Brew City" today usually marks the user as someone who is out-of-touch and probably from the suburbs (if not familiar with the area at all).
"What's going on in the Brew City tonight?"
"You're not from around here, are you?"
