Although German influence in Milwaukee has wained since the mid-1800s, when one-third of Milwaukee's population were of German descent, German culture is still very much evident throughout the city. Milwaukee, the largest city in Wisconsin, is located in the southeastern portion of the state on the shore of Lake Michigan. Famous for beer, Milwaukee is home to the Miller Brewing Company and other smaller microbreweries around the city that offer tours. Summerfest, an annual music festival that takes place in downtown Milwaukee, draws together nearly one million attendees every July for music performances, comedy, international cuisine and more. With its recent renovation, the Milwaukee Art Museum, which was founded by German artists in the late 1800s, holds an impressive collection of German expressionist paintings, Haitian art, modern art and classics from the 19th and 20th centuries, to name a few.
