Smallish place is shaped like a box, not much character to the building but the seating and decor make it stand out. It could use a bit more lighting, it was really dark inside. The menu states it has 62 drafts, and when you look at the bar you see a ton of handles. It doesnít appear like there is that many on the draft list as the print is small. There are some really solid beers on there, but I wish there was more of a focus on Wisconsin beers. Only one New Glarus and the others were a bit too common. I was hoping for some more rar ticks. They offer a 4 set of 6oz pour for tasting, which is cool for a bar. The server was super nice, but didnít seem super into beer. Really low key spot, that Iíd visit if I lived there. However, for the lack of locals I canít say its a destination spot.

Dim, minimalist, modern decor (concrete bench-style seating), this is a beer geek womb. Amazing selection, great service that is both friendly and knowledgable, you essentially come here for the beer. It reminded me of the Map Room in Chicago, but more upscale. No food.

Relaxed and friendly, dimly lit beer nerd heaven, worth the bicycle ride through Milwaukee. The selection is obviously impressive, food not on offer, bar staff very busy, on top of their game, but up for a chat, tasters and sample flight advice. If the high ABV selection wonít give you a headache the lack of lighting compared to small menus will.

place gets busy and feels woefully understaffed when it does, but the bartenders know their beer and the selection is awesome.

Arrived right at the opening hour on a Saturday. What a groovy place! The very beer-savvy bartender was very good at what she did, and also quite friendly. The selection was very, very good, with a good emphasis on regional selections visitors like me might not find elsewhere. They were even playing some good tunes. Definitely the best beer nerd spot in Milwaukee.

I will never ever go back to that bar. It use to be a nice play. now you cant get service and heaven forbid you move a chair then you get almost most attacked by some goof ball bus boy. I give it a year and it will be out of business. If you donít believe me look at the other post. We tried to talk to the owner and all she would say is Google it. Well Google this!

Always willing to let you sample a beer and the choices generally rotate rather frequently and they get some harder to find brewpubs in. Usually a decent selection of beers, thereís always something decent on tap. The 4-8 happy hour deal of $1 off is a great deal! They have music in the back and a DJ on some nights but the music played here is generally not my thing. Iím not a huge fan of the low chairs and layout.

Varied, well-put together, selection that is more than ample and always updating. Lots of good stuff.

Great selection of craft beer. Seemed a little dark for my tastes but also a relaxing place. Clean place with a large bar. Couches are available to sit on in case you need to nap before driving. I would rate higher if they had some snacks or something to eat while sampling the many craft beers.

Maybe I went on the wrong night (Tuesday), but I was the only customer. It strikes me more as place to take a date and not a place to hang out with the guys.
