Milwaukee is known as the "Cream City" because of the cream or light yellow-colored brick that is made from a clay found in the area. These bricks were one of the most common building materials used in Milwaukee during the mid and late 19th century. The packaging was inspired by these Cream City Bricks.
The Cream City release party is on April 27th, 2016 at Metro Cigars' Germantown location. Erik Espinosa and Metro cigars proprietor, Paul Groh will be in attendance.
