Great selection of taps and it sounds like this place gets all the hard to get brews. It was a blast talking with the owner Mike and I look forward to stopping by again.

A decent tap list awaits you at Romans but a step behind the other top bars in the area. Tables and booths to sit down at is nice, as are the TVs, which other places in the area don’t offer. Prices are the highest in town and there’s no grumpy (happy) hour. Service is sometimes decent and other times downright awful as Roman can be a bit cantankerous. I have friends who won’t even go here because of the way they’ve been treated. During special releases they do get some nice stuff in.

Great beer bar with knowledgeable if gruff proprietor. No food, but really good beer selection and an awesome deck with cigars also available. Looking for a casual place to try some beer and/or cigars varieties, this place rocks!

If visiting from out-of-state this should be your first stop. Nice comfortable pub feel. Love the beer garden. Only domestic craft beers and quality imports. Always an impressive tap list. When you are there you know everyone else around you is like-minded in their enjoyment of good beer. Love that they have TVs so you can enjoy a game and still drink a decent beer. Wish I lived closer to it but lucky I do not, as I would spend all my time and money here.

Certainly worthy of the Top 100 beer bars as rated in Draft Magazine. Mike’s a straight shooter and very knowledgeable. This will be a regular stop when I’m in Milwaukee.

No nonsense pub with a plain black and white board scribed with 30 or so amazing beers that are on tap. Great rotating selection. Facebook updates when new beers are tapped. I drive 45 minutes to go to this place. Love it.

Romans has become my local haunt over the past year. I used to frequent Sugar Maple much more often (I still go there occasionally), but now am a regular at Romans. He has about 30 beers on draft and takes care of his beers meticulously (he talks about his glycol cooled taps). You always get proper glassware. The patrons are generally very friendly and all walks of life. It seems many of them are regulars and Mike knows by name. Mike love his bar and his beers, and does not really have a "filter" so people who don’t know him well can sometimes be put off. Some customers may not get the humor in the "No Spotted Cow, not now, not ever" sign. He is genuinely a nice guy and hilarious though. He gets some very limited kegs and knows the players in the Midwest craft brewing scene (he’s been doing this for decades). All in all, a must visit if you’re in town.

Very nice draft selection. You can tell the owner likes really good beer. They get some unique barrels. You wonï¿½t find anything to satisfy your typical BMC drinker. The atmosphere is a typical corner bar. They do have some booth seating and a back room. If you like good beer and live in or visit Milwaukee you must stop here.
