I guess the premiere beer bar in town. The bartender was pleasant and chatty and informed me when I asked that rumorís of this placeís demise are unfounded (some locals Iíve run into have said this place was being turned into a wine bar). Lots of taps, good, well curated selection, less common stuff but no real rarities. Prices are a little steep. Dark place, but it seemed expansive. Overall very good, but not quite world class. Iíll be back.

Place with 60 drafts often many special releases and one offs, flights are available in 2 sizes and are flat rate, good atmosphere, biergarten in the summer. World class establishment.

Solid beer bar. Good service. Only complaint is that its a little too "hip" for my tastes. Sort of has a loung-y feel on weekend nights.

fantastic Place! Been here twice now on 2 different trips to Milwaukee. Great selection of mostly midwest brews however, they get lots of rare brews from various places. Service is friendly and prompt. Unique atmosphere but in a good way. Great place.

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.
