Probably my favorite bar in Milwaukee. Highly recommend going here if you are in Bayview. Lots of games to play along with shuffleboard.
Oh yeah, and the beer is awesome!

Dont waste you time at the other bayview joints. Check this place out for the retro beats and solid beer offerings.

Hit up Burnhearts shortly after opening (3pm) on a weekday back in March '14. Happy hour included $10 flight of five incredible draft selections. (local smoked sour, BCBS, Dark Horse to name a few) Bartender was friendly and knowledgeable. He whipped out an Imperial Biscotti Break Natale w/ cherries from the back. Super awesome experience!

Stopped in here when I heard they had a rare keg (for wisconsin) of zombie dust on tap. They have all of their taps online at beermenus.com so that's a plus.

I had not heard of this place despite frequenting places like Roman's and the Palm tavern for years. Apparently in the past 2 years they have decided to move more and more towards special release craft beers. The tap list included 3 sours, (one jolly pumpkin, one gueze from belgium), a couple evil twin and mikeller releases, seasonal releases like alpha klaus from 3F, etc. I did not see any of the usual standards such as spotted cow on tap at all. They also had tallgrass 8-bit pale ale aged on peaches in cask.

There is also a rare beer list "Carl's secret stash", which contains very rare one time releases mostly from belgium that run up to $40 a bottle.

Although other places have more taps (sugar maple), I'm not sure you can find a selection of harder to find beers in milwaukee anywhere else. It reminds me of the local option in chicago.

Around 10pm on a friday it did turn into hipster central, I think leftover from before they started having the amazing tap list.

Went here for the Black Note event but was shut out and just left (it was way too crowded).

Went again last night with a buddy and it was a lot less crowded. It is a nice dimly lit bar. The clientele seems to be young professionals and hipsters. A lot of high life and strongbow drinkers.

But the taplist is pretty good, 20 or so taps of craft. I got a hoptimum and it was pretty good. This place seems to keep up with bringing in new or interesting stuff.

The prices weren't too bad.

Overall a nice Bayview stop.

Burnhearts is a fantastic place. As a teacher I write innumerable letters of recommendation, and they always tell you when writing them that it is bad to rate the candidate tops in all categories; they say you should try and find at least one thing you can recommend the candidate works on to become better, so I thought long and hard, and I guess the only thing I can think of that you could possibly knock Burnhearts down a notch or two for is selection, and that is only if you are coming from a superhuge, big city, megacraftbeerbaremporium.

Great selection of bottles, taps range from the Wisconsin standards (Spotted Cow) to really really great beers (both domestic and international), and occasional exceptional beers (BCBS was on a few months back, Peruvian Morning from Central Waters was on earlier this month, Black Note will be on in a few weeks) Bartenders are all very nice and run the gamut from extremely informed about craft beer, to competent on the topic. Prices are insanely reasonable, especially during happy hour and during the many "$1 off taps all day" specials that BJ runs.

But for me, the best thing is the atmosphere/ambiance. The clientele is a wonderfully eclectic mix of neighborhood regulars and craft beer aficionados. I hate Wisconsin winters, but nothing is better than a Wisconsin winter night at Burnhearts with friends, a bunch of tasty beers, snow falling outside, and the lights turned down low.

I am fortunate to live in Bay View, an area with many great craft beer establishments, but I find that Burnhearts is the place I return to most often and the place that I bring the most visitors to, and they all end up loving it. Highly recommended.

Another stop on my recent bayview tickathon. Sinage is almost impossible to see in the dark night. Luckily we knew the cross streets where this place is locate. Once inside it's like a vampires house. Super dark with a handful of red christmas lights and low lit lamps lighting your way. Music was a touch loud for my taste but at least it was decent tunes. I can live with that. Bar on your right tables to your left and a cool sort of hidden seating area that leads to pool tables in back.

Very nice tap selection and an extensive bottle list make for a hard decision on what to have. Plenty of local options as well as a good amount of imports and belgians. I settled on an Eddy Fitz porter. Can't go wrong with that one.

Served in a clean pint glass and actually at a cooler temp than most places. This is a huge bonus. I don't have to wait 10 minutes to warm my beer before taking a sip.

The bartenders seemed rather helpful and nice. Nothing over the top one way or the other.

Overall I will be coming back to this place for sure.
