The precurser the Milwaukee Brewing Company, the Ale House has been a spot I've frequented numerous times through out the years. When Its warm the deck in the back facing the river is a great place to grab a pint.

The beer is mostly MKE Brewing company, but occasionaly they firkins of one off beers that are always the highlight for me. Vanilla bean porter was my favorite hands down. Food is solid, but nothing to write home about, and I've always had good service.

Cheers

We were there on a Sunday and service was a little lax. The food and beer were decent but not great.

Enjoyed visiting this place since late 90's on Milwaukee trips. Good range of food options and sincerely appreciate the vegetarian menu choices. Most beers are fairly decent, none bad, but also none that were really hitting it out of the park. Examples for styles seemed aimed at a more general audience, which is fine with me because that's more in line with my tastes as well. Parking can be tough downtown in this area sometimes, which is a common annoyance with me.

Huge space with lots of seating options at the bar or at tables/booths. Cool artwork on the walls, live music, and overall a fun place to meet friends for a drink and a bite.

A few nit picky things. 1) Our server was either drunk or just too goofy. The slurring of his words and attempts at humor were distracting from the overall experience. 2) 2 out of 3 beers were served in cold frosted glasses and were weren't drinking light beers (stout and belgian double). Fortunately my cask aged IPA was served at room temp.

In the end, there were some good beers once they warmed up (stout and belgian double). My IPA was disappointing. However, the food was excellent all around. I had the chicken sandwich, and my friends had the fish fry.

I need to give this place a second chance, as I would hope our server is atypical (or maybe having a down night). Maybe grabbing a seat at the bar would put me in contact with a knowledgeable and less obnoxious bartender.
