Visited on the afternoon of June 27th. With Milwaukee's Summerfest going on the rather small place was almost empty. That was okay, because we got the owner's (Mike Roman) nearly full attention as he patiently explained the local beer selections to us out-of-staters. Must say he was spot on with his recommendations! Mike obviously takes his beer very seriously, with a fantastic tap selection and impressive glassware. He's somewhat of a dichomoty because he's not what you'd expect such a meticulous craft beer bar owner to look like (pardon the profiling here) - in fact he looks more like someone you'd expect to see hanging out with your dad in a bowling alley after a hard day driving a steamroller. Don't mean that in a bad way, he's a friendly dude who loves great beer and sharing his love for beer with his customers which makes him the best kind of bartender in my book. He does not serve food.

If you are looking for a laid back environment to enjoy awesome beer this is the place to go. If you are looking to rage I recommend looking elsewhere because Mike, the owner, makes it abundantly clear this is not the place for that. The beer is awesome and there is always something good to drink. Mike knows his beers and goes to great lengths to make sure that he is getting his customers the best beer he possibly can and that they are drinking at the right time. It is my understanding that this is one of the first bars in the area and the interior is almost unchanged which provides a great environment to enjoy those great beers. If you consider yourself a beer aficionado or an aspiring beer geek with a good attitude check this place out!

Mike, the owner, is actually a really great guy and more knowledgeable about beer than anyone else I've met. When it gets busy and he's the only one behind the bar, maybe he can come off as a bit short but I've had nothing but great experiences there. They also have never hesitated to let me try a beer before committing to a full glass. I love the place and go there every chance I get.

Best beer in the City of Milwaukee. Lines are cleaned almost weekly to keep the beer tasting great. The owner knows his beer and the menu is constantly changing. Only gripe is that the bar is a bit small. This place is a must on any beer enthusiasts list.

What's not to like. Great assortment, interior is true to it's original heritage. Mike Romans, the proprietor, is as friendly as they come and makes the whole experience fun and interesting. He knows how to properly pour a beer, and has proper glassware for the products he pours. I found it interesting that on the night we were there, the customers included a couple of other bar owners. That's usually a sign of a great place. Never had to wait or ask twice when we needed refills, or wanted to try something different. Highest recommendation.
