Very cool building. Located in the basement of an old historic mill. Bar tender told me it was the feed storeís, located above it, area where they threw all the junk and garbage. They did a good job cleaning it out! The only had 4 house beers but a decent tap list of íguestí beers. My only major knock is they donít serve food.
Nice location right on the river by a waterfall. Several tables outside with interesting heater lamps. The walk into the building goes by some water concoction, Iím assuming itís part of the old mill or whatever this place use to be. The inside is smoke free and quaint. There are several games to play, something I like to do while drinking a good beer. The beer I had was decent, especially the porter. The guest list is decent and they offer some bottled stuff like Goose Island Reserve, Grimbergen and White Winter Winery. The Blond Root Beer was good, as was the service. Food was only snack type items, cheese and sausage but hey itís Wisconsin cheese so itís all good. Main knock on the place is there is only one unisex bathroom so you might be waiting awhile to go.
Stopped here the other night w/ some friends for some beer. Decent selection of taps, some good stuff on it, there 1 local i tried was pretty poor though, but it was just a beta lager. They had some little games to play, a great outdoor area right on the river/creek and a nice clean atmosphere. No food really (just cheese and pretzels but the chesse was good).
After sampling the porter and root beer at the Beer Barons pf Milwaukee festival in 2006, Iíve wanted to visit this place. They had only a few beers, but they were good, and this place is quite cool. Iím definitely glad I visited.
Silver Creek is in historic Cedarburg, about 25 minutes north of Milwaukee, right along the river below an old dam. The brewery is in a historic mill, and the creek still runs through the brewery today. The brewpub is old riverstone but is very modern and nice. It is a bit musty inside, but in a good way. Smells...authentic.
Inside were 4 house brews (lager, porter, hefeweizen, and pale ale) along with 13 guest taps which had a few interesting ones like NC Old Stock Ale and some locals. This place also had a great (nearly clear) root beer, which was excellent.
This place opens in the afternoon, and has no food, making it a poor lunch stop, but a very interesting place to stop for a beer.
Nice place, especially on the patio that rests alongside the creek and a miniature waterfall. Weather was perfect, and we passed away many minutes just soaking up the sun and sipping our beer. In fact, the patio is so relaxing that it kept my son (18 months at the time) perfectly content with the scenery around him. Service was slow on the deck, but the bartender inside was happy to help. Good prices - a pint of the IPA and a snifter of the Porter cost $7 total. They do have a sampler of 6 beers for $9, if thatís your thing, but they only had 3 of their own beers on tap, so we opted for the bigger servings. Nevertheless, recommended if youíre in the area.
I stopped in here during Cedarburgís Strawberry Festival. They have some wood/metal games to play, some other adult mind games, 3 tvís, and itís right on the river. I thought this place was such a hidden gem. Very quaint. Also, they carry BREAKFAST STOUT for $4. A bar bargain. Iíd recommend this place if not to try one of the 16 taps, then to just hang out and drink excellent beer.
Iíve always liked this locale. Very unique spot on the river in a mill-like building. Outdoor area can get a little buggy at night. Nice looking inside. Their "house" beers are well-crafted and have various other local/regional stuff on tap. No food really, but doesnít matter.
A great little brewpub with a very nice guest tap selection as well. Home beers are above average and you canít beat the location with the spring actually inside the building. Speaking to the brewmaster I discovered that this place has been here for 6 years. How did I not find this place before?
Hard to find (around the back, on the river) in the dark and snow, crossing the bridge into the mill as the water rolls underneath. Inside a quaint mix of old and new -- the old stone of the mill and the new fixtures & wood. A shortish bar area (10 stools) with a food area. 12 taps and about the same number of advertized bottles, 4 from the brewery, and a nice range of styles. Hitting happy hour meant the $4 local and $5 national pints were half price. I would go back to try others.
They have a decent tap list of about 15 beers, plus another 10-15 beers or so in bottles. The beers they brew are pretty good, had the porter (not spiced porter), it was very good. Will have to go back to try the others. Happy hour is a definite bargain... two good beers for about $4.50. Seems to be non-smoking, but maybe allowed outside.
