Kind of a dingy little place, but worth a stop - itís a great place for an out-of-towner like me to pick up singles (thereís nothing worse than rolling into town for a few days and having to buy sixers of every single thing you want to try - a guy can only drink so much in a short time) - they donít have anything that will blow you away, but they have pretty much every micro available in WI (and I did find a bomber of Alpha Klaus there just today) - their imports are lacking, but that isnít why Iíd come here anyway - the pricing policy is a little weird, though (each bottle is labeled with a price [per six pack] - you build your own personal six pack, and they then average the prices on every label in that pack together to come up with the price for your personalized sixer - if I were good at math I might be able to build each pack for optimal pricing, but Iím not, so I probably wound up paying a little more) - in short, if you want to build up your ratings while in Milwaukee, this is the place to come.
Tons of singles. I walked out with 3 cases of mixed singles to bring back to PA with.

Update - 01/24/09. Breeze Thru has moved next door into a larger, nicer store. Coolers now line the wall and shelves in the interior of the store have the liquor and whatnot.
At first glance, I thought this was just another hole-in-the-wall liquor store. Turns out it just looks like one. Thereís not much room to maneuver here, but thereís pretty much beer around every corner. Pretty much a build your own six pack place. All of the bottles are stamped with the price of a six pack and you end up paying about 1/6th of that cost for a single bottle. There are sheets on every cooler stating what a single bottle costs. Prices seem reasonable and the selection is good. Just about everything is in coolers and extra stock is hanging out on top of the coolers. The variety is plentiful, especially on the domestic side. Itís right up there with Three Cellars in terms of variety of beer but the stock doesnít rotate as well. There are a handful of offerings I havenít seen elsewhere in Milwaukee.
Went here because DavidP and MrFacto said it was a good place. They have a great selection of WI micros. The best singles selection I have seen in WI. Maybe not quality, but certainly in quantity. I got a lot of new ones at this location. I thought prices were fine for a bottle shop with lots of singles. Milwaukee folks are spoiled by Discountís six pack prices.
Excellent place to pick up singles. It looks like a dumpy place, but I love a place that has ambiance by lacking it. The service consists of two dudes sitting behind a counter not giving a shit, which is awesome, because I donít need your help when picking out beer. Iím sure they would have been more than helpful to answers questions. Anyways, the bottle selection was nice, and I didnít have any problems finding things here that I didnít see anywhere else. If youíre in Spillwaukee, pay this place a visit. The prices were fair, as they seemed to be pricing their beers as everyone else was. Great store, with a great selection.
Not much in rare beers but you can any 12 ounce beer in singles and I left with 2 mixer sixers of stuff I have not had before. The mixer prices where not that bad either. Worth a quick stop if in the area.
If youíre nearby, stop in. Itís a dingey little place and no one really took notice of me until I was checking out, but they have a pretty decent selection of brews, most available as a part of their reasonably priced mix-n-match deal. Coming out of the Chicago area, I appreaciated that deal, given the vastly different distribution here. Even picked up a Belgian that I havenít tried. Iíll be back.
