Take an audio tour of the Historic Miller Caves.


It's an impressive operation.

In just one day, the Milwaukee MillerCoors brewery can produce and package more than 500,000 cases of beer.  And the Brew City plant near 42nd and State street has been pumping out beer since the mid 1800s.  

Today, the finished product sits in a massive warehouse, waiting to ship all over the country.

But in the 1800s, before refrigeration, the beer was stored 60 feet below ground, in the historic Miller caves.

How did those caves get there?  How did they keep it so cold?
