Low-key kinda dingy store. Beer, wine, hard liquor, some potato chip like snacks. Shopkeeper was nice. Prices good. As others have said, good place to pick up singles. Absolutely no rarities, few bombers. Selection is haphazard, but you’ll probably find some oddball seasonals you haven’t tried. Not worth going out of your way, but you might drive through here on the way to Raised Grain and World of Beer is nearby. Prices are good.
Kind of a dingy little place, but worth a stop - it’s a great place for an out-of-towner like me to pick up singles (there’s nothing worse than rolling into town for a few days and having to buy sixers of every single thing you want to try - a guy can only drink so much in a short time) - they don’t have anything that will blow you away, but they have pretty much every micro available in WI (and I did find a bomber of Alpha Klaus there just today) - their imports are lacking, but that isn’t why I’d come here anyway - the pricing policy is a little weird, though (each bottle is labeled with a price [per six pack] - you build your own personal six pack, and they then average the prices on every label in that pack together to come up with the price for your personalized sixer - if I were good at math I might be able to build each pack for optimal pricing, but I’m not, so I probably wound up paying a little more) - in short, if you want to build up your ratings while in Milwaukee, this is the place to come.
Tons of singles. I walked out with 3 cases of mixed singles to bring back to PA with.

Update - 01/24/09. Breeze Thru has moved next door into a larger, nicer store. Coolers now line the wall and shelves in the interior of the store have the liquor and whatnot.
At first glance, I thought this was just another hole-in-the-wall liquor store. Turns out it just looks like one. There’s not much room to maneuver here, but there’s pretty much beer around every corner. Pretty much a build your own six pack place. All of the bottles are stamped with the price of a six pack and you end up paying about 1/6th of that cost for a single bottle. There are sheets on every cooler stating what a single bottle costs. Prices seem reasonable and the selection is good. Just about everything is in coolers and extra stock is hanging out on top of the coolers. The variety is plentiful, especially on the domestic side. It’s right up there with Three Cellars in terms of variety of beer but the stock doesn’t rotate as well. There are a handful of offerings I haven’t seen elsewhere in Milwaukee.
Went here because DavidP and MrFacto said it was a good place. They have a great selection of WI micros. The best singles selection I have seen in WI. Maybe not quality, but certainly in quantity. I got a lot of new ones at this location. I thought prices were fine for a bottle shop with lots of singles. Milwaukee folks are spoiled by Discount’s six pack prices.
Excellent place to pick up singles. It looks like a dumpy place, but I love a place that has ambiance by lacking it. The service consists of two dudes sitting behind a counter not giving a shit, which is awesome, because I don’t need your help when picking out beer. I’m sure they would have been more than helpful to answers questions. Anyways, the bottle selection was nice, and I didn’t have any problems finding things here that I didn’t see anywhere else. If you’re in Spillwaukee, pay this place a visit. The prices were fair, as they seemed to be pricing their beers as everyone else was. Great store, with a great selection.
Not much in rare beers but you can any 12 ounce beer in singles and I left with 2 mixer sixers of stuff I have not had before. The mixer prices where not that bad either. Worth a quick stop if in the area.
