Right on the main drag in downtown West Allis - cannot get away from there in my life, including walking siblings to dance class a block away. Plan to park before it because 74th is a one way street the wrong way from parking. Very local place - half bar/half restaurant and neither very large. 15 person bar with 30 taps, mostly micros and as many from CO as WI; nice range of styles. A tap list somewhere on the net would be a benefit.
Located in "downtown" Stallis’ on the main beat. It would be very easy to pass this by without a second thought. The ambiance is eclectic to put it nicely. Nothing to new or exciting, but comfortable atmosphere. The tap line is huge though! The tap list is generally excellent. I can always find 4-5 beers that I’m happy to try. They were the only place in town that got Flying Dog’s Kujo and the first place to tap Hopslam (full pint pour with no cluster fuck crowd). The service is generally excellent, especially the bartender who procures their beer. He does a great job and is really making this into a great beer bar There is no other beer places in proximity to it, so you’ll have to make a special trip there. The only other thing that bothers me is that they don’t have an up to date tap list online, so I rarely make the trip there. Definitely a place you should hit if you are in the area. It should me much higher on the RB Milwaukee places list.
Great for a ’Stallis bar but not so shiny when compared to other Milwaukee establishments. The bar has a good vibe, no stares from the regulars when you walk in. Decent selection of craft/import tap lines. Their menu is decent.. wings are so-so, the fish fry is pretty good. Nice alternative if you don’t want to make the journey to Milwaukee’s Downtown or Eastside areas.
Great beers, great people.....bartender Justin is awesome....J-Money is the man with the suds....come and enjoy all of the beers........

Nice selection of taps and above average pub grub. Best times to visit are weekends and after work during the week. Can get a bit smoky and filled with macro swilling locals at night. Appears to be understaffed during busy times.
I had read about Benno’s on this site, so I stopped by to take a look.
The sign outside proclaims "Home of Microbrews," and their beer list is impressive. There are 30 mostly-craft beers on draft, and although they are of high quality, most of these 30 aren’t terribly uncommon (New Glarus Fat Squirrel, Sprecher Amber, etc.). The decor is unremarkable...it’s modern with a shoebox shaped bar with an adjacent room with seating.
I sat at the bar and had a "classic taco." The service was quick and relatively friendly, and my impression upon hearing the bartendress give a beer recommendation to a customer led me to believe that they have a familiarity with at least some of their draft beers. I was pretty underwhelmed by the food...the tacos at McBob’s (4919 W North Ave) are much better.
One of the better places in town for taps, especially Wisconsin micro taps, but nothing to really entice us locals into becomming regulars. Happy hour specials Monday-Thursday - tap beer $3 per pint. Monday is $1 off bottles night. Opens at 4:00 p.m. The bartender - no matter who it is - is usually an ass, so don’t expect a welcome wagon unless you decide to become crass at the door and act like a volgar blue collar yokel. A little smoky, and the fact that everything I’ve had has been served in a shaker is a bit disappointing, but it’s semi-worthwhile if you’re from out of town and want some Wisconsin flavors.
