Over 100 beers to chose from with more than 30 on tap. They even have a good selection of everything from Trappist to local craft brews. Inside is a little too dark for my liking, but it’s worth it to be able to try different beer. It’s a bit pricey but not horribly out of line for North Ave.

Stumbled upon this place on St Patty’s. 31 taps, many are german or other imports. They have some random awesome American craft on draft. It’s a dark bar with a cool patio. Definitely worth a stop.

I go here a couple times a week with friends. We are interested in just sitting down having a drink without super loud music blasting in out ears. The crowd in this bar is also awesome. If you love beer, you will love this bar, they have a great German Selection and a bunch of new craft tappers and other local favorites. The pricing for the beer is great and everything they don’t have on tap they’ve got in a bottle. The cocktails here are a little overpriced but this is more of a beer bar. Bartenders are always polite. FREE POPCORN

This place is a dank hole that has a pretty shoddy beer selection. The only people who go here are aging boomers who dont know that there are better places out there now

German beers are prominent here although Micros have became more prevalent in the last couple years. Can get crowded on the weekend due to its close proximaty to UW-Milwaukee.

Von Trier is a nice east side / North Ave bar, though, I’ve never been there when its busy. Not much of a selection, but do have decent German beers. Fun place to hit for a beer if you are in the area.

I think they used to have a wider beer selection but still isn’t bad...located on the always interesting and enjoyable East Side of Milwaukee...great "Old Time" feel in the bar....service has never been great but not terrible either. Fun place to stop for a decent beer if you are in the area.

I felt the place to be a bit crowded when I was there (standing room only). They had some nice things on tap, delirium tremens, lindemans lambic, some other excellent beers (I can’t recall, but they were good). Beers can be a BIT on the expensive side there topping $7. They had a German band playing some polka on our side of the bar. Service was to be desired, a bit on the slow side, but then again it was packed...

Fun little German bar. Having 2 separate rooms helps to keep down the noise, which is nice, and it is often less crowded than many of this area’s bars. The diversity of the beer isn’t quite as good as I’d like. Maybe 15 beers on tap, about 4 locals, several German beers, and a few other common beers. Around double that bottled, but not too much unusual here, as they generally have the same imports you can find most places. If you’re in the neighborhood, its worth a stop for the atmosphere, and to see what German beers are on, but then head across the street to Hooligan’s for what I felt was a more enticing beer selection.
