MILWAUKEE — Milwaukee is one of the best cities in the country to celebrate Irish-American heritage.

Milwaukee ranks as the 11th-best city, out of 200 total, to celebrate the holiday. One of the biggest reasons: beer price.

Milwaukee has the second-lowest average beer price, behind Oklahoma City. The study also says Brew City has the 13th most-affordable cost on this holiday.

The study compared other categories such as traditions, safety and weather. Milwaukee ranks 29th in traditions, 106th in safety and 49th in weather.

The best city to celebrate St. Patrick's Day is Chicago, and the worst city is Moreno Valley in California.
