Milwaukee is the beer capital of America, also in song: What Made Milwaukee Famous (Has Made A Loser Out Of Me) sang Jerry Lee Lewis and of course he made allusions on the headquarters of Miller and Michelob. The story-line in Milwaukee, Here I Come has also a beer smell to it: a couple of freewheelers, working in the brewery, move to Nashville, lured by the wife's devotion to country music. It all sored the moment she saw the Grand Ole' Opry and that's when her husband really got homesick.
