I love this place. The $3 Oskar Blues cans on Saturday nights is reason enough to go. It doesn't have the best variety, but they are constantly bringing new stuff in and shaking things up, so there is always something new to be had. I love the crowd, and I love the atmosphere. Its small and kind of has a corner bar feel, which is why I like it - its a corner bar but with good beer. My only beef with the place is the service. Most of the girls that work there as well as a couple of the guys just don't know their beer. Or they're wasted.

Went there on a Saturday evening before it was too busy and we found a section of the bar to claim. Kind of smokey and a smattering of hipsters and yuppies, but that's what the Nomad is in Minneapolis (except we got rid of the smoking). Beers in the right glasses but not the most fresh. Staff is cool and distant, in no rush, whatever. Enough to choose from on tap and in bottles, it's not like I'm going to be spending the whole evening there, I just need a few good ones to choose from. I'd go back if the peeps insist, but otherwise I'll suggest places that I haven't yet tried.

Cool soccer bar on the iffy Brady Street in Milwaukee.
We stopped in on a quiet Tuesday afternoon (5:30 - 7:00) and enjoyed a few pints of three floyds pride and joy and some great conversation.
tap selection was nothing overly exciting but there were solid options.
atmosphere was pretty relaxed on our visit - nice wooden interior, lots of soccer, and a calm atmosphere. it's my understanding that this shouldnt be expected unless visiting on non-peak hours.
no need to seek out, but I had a good time, and if i needed a pint to enjoy during an arsenal game or something, this would be a good bet in MKE

I'll be honest right off the bat here, I can't be sure about the prices. I came to this place with Paul (the rep) and Larry Bell from Bell's after their event at Ray's just a bit back. I only had Bell's and they were comped. I assume the prices are comparable if not a bit higher than most Milwaukee venues.
With that said, the place had a cool atmosphere (I ignored the other people there that seem to plague everyone else's review of the place). Small and intimate with low level lighting and dark wood. Lots of nick-knacks adorn the walls including some interesting African wooden masks. European football (aka Soccer) was on the TVs scattered about.
Upstairs was also small and intimate with another selection of taps. The beers weren't anything out of the ordinary for a Milwaukee bar sporting craft taps, but the selection was well-rounded for a variety of styles.
Service could have been padded with Larry Bell there, but one of the other guys talking to us was the owner. I suppose I shouldn't comment on this either way really. Another visit might rectify that, but I don't really see the point of going back there honestly. It's not a bad joint from what I experienced, it's just nothing special at all.

The Nomad is a fairly easy walk or short cab ride from Downtown Milwaukee. Local Wisconsin beers like Oso, Furthermore, New Glarus can be found here. As well as regionals like Bells and FFF. They also serve a fair amount of BMC, PBR, etc and have hard booze. One of their things is showing soccer from European countries on the TVs, so if you have a friend visiting from Poland or the U.K., this could be a good bet. Prices are reasonable and staff is pretty helpful, although sometimes trying to do their best with large crowds and 1 bartender at hand.

Very small bar with a world traveler theme. This place seems very foreign and isnt concerned with being a normal milwaukee bar. They play soccer games here for instance, which is a nice change of pace. The tap selection is alright. Lakefront brews a beer or two specifically for them. They also have a few nice bottle and taps. Last time I was there I had a two hearted on tap. Prices are in line with Brady Street bars. A nice bar in the summer as they have seating outside on the sidewalk if you dont mind drinking from plastic. A nice bar, but there are better on Brady.
