Stopped by here after a wedding in Wisconsin and I have to say I was very impressed. This place sports a very respectable 60 taps, and among them you’re bound to find some excellent options. New Glarus, Three Floyds, Bell’s, Founders, and several local breweries were well-represented on the tap list. Nothing was extremely rare, but if you’re complaining about stuff like Raspberry Tart, New Glarus Unplugged beers, and limited local stuff on tap, you’ve probably become a bit too jaded. They offer flights of 4 six-ounce pours for $12, which is money if you’re a ticker.

The hipster bartender was a nice guy who gave great service and knew beer very well. No complaints there. The ambiance is really great. Lots of space with comfortable seating, nice decor, and a good outdoor area with picnic tables and a ping (not beer) pong table. Overall this is a bar Milwaukee should be proud of. Don’t miss it if you’re in town - you really have no excuse as it’s right next to I-94, I-43, and the airport.

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.
