Another unique Milwaukee craft beer bar. Sugar Maple feels more like a coffee house than a bar (which is great, IMO). So if you're looking for a dive bar feel, this isn't it. If you're looking for a comfortable place to chat with friends (or a friendly bartender) while you drink a few beers, this is the perfect place.
Atmosphere- think Seattle Coffee Shop meets low-key great-first-date bar. Clean, spacious, with a patio and a small area in back where bands play. Sometimes it's folk rock, sometimes it's free jazz.
Quality- no macros on tap. Plenty of big names on tap and some small, local names, too. Haven't had a cocktail here, but the whiskey selection is impressive.
Service- Knowledgeable and friendly. Prompt at keeping your glass full. Great with suggestions.
Selection- 40+ taps of craft beer. Been here many times and have never really been disappointed. I can remember maybe a single visit where nothing jumped out at me. The bartender suggested something that I wouldn't have chosen on my own and it was great.
Value- decent prices. Fair.
