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.

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.

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.

Stopped in this place after the Palm tavern on a Wednesday night. The bar was full but the rest of the small place was empty. Unlike the Palm this one has a bright sports bar vibe but with some old school Milwaukee traits thrown in.

The bartender is a friendly guy. Also drinks on the job which I respect. The music is sort of loud and sort of crappy. The vie in this place could be better.

The beer list though is amazing. There was a Fullers "hand pull" which I had and it was good. Also a nice variety of craft on tap, nothing extremely out of the ordinary, just a solid list. The prices were reasonable.

Overall a great stop on this road with many.

What a fantastic bar! When you go out in Milwaukee and ask around, this is where the local bartenders will tell you THEY go to drink. Turns out it's true. In fact, last night I even met a local beer distributor who had chosen belly up to the Romans bar. The proprietor, Mike Romans, is simply a cool dude and is 90% of the reason I love this place. He strikes a beautiful balance between old-school Milwaukee barkeep and beer nerd. There is nothing fancy about the Bay View watering hole, but once you get inside you will quickly discover why those who "know" come here. Old school service, a great beer selection, and a fun crowd
