Sugar Maple was mentioned to me by a good friend in Milwaukee as being a good beer bar, so when we went last night, I had high hopes. They've got 60 taps, with a good variety of local and national coast-to-coast micro brews including some things from big breweries like DFH (Poppa Skull) that I hadn't seen before, even at places with much larger selections, so that was pretty exciting. The place was loud and dark, and they had some really bizarre music choices. But the service was nice and friendly and informative, and the selection was very good, so that trumps the poor atmosphere for me. Check this place out!

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.
