Kenadee’s is an excellent example of the adage "a beer list does not a beer place make." Kenadee’s has 17 taps of imports and micros and a nice beer bottle list, but that does not make this into a beer-savvy place. It is a very trendy place, with a bright green motif and an exclusive upstairs area where you can hide out with your ultra cool friends and keep tabs on the scene below, if you’re into that kind of thing. The clientele is not very into beer. Most of the folks in there in my last visit were kicking back with either a Stella Artois (Flemish for "this beer sucks") or a fancy cocktail. Kenadee’s used to have an impressive list of beer-based cocktails, but I do not believe they are offered anymore. The wait-staff also seems a bit beer clueless. The very young (21, 22?) year old woman manning the bar was very slow to serve me (to be fair, she was behind the bar alone). While the beer list was large, I didn’t find it to be exceptionally interesting. Consequently, I ordered a Bell’s Two-Hearted (something I know I like, having had it many times), which she hunted around for, found eventually, popped the top off of, brought to me, and then walked away. It was the first time I’ve not gotten a glass in a bar, especially for a $5.50 beer in quite a while. If you’re looking for a good-beer place in Milwaukee, you could make a much wiser choice.
