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

Went back here yesterday and luckily the owner, Mike, was bartending. Not only did we get rare treats such as Sierra Nevada Juniper Black Ale, but we got to enjoy a good measure of Milwaukee humor - dry, biting, and loads of fun. They have a nice beer garden that complments the coziness of the pub itself. Mike is the quintessential beer pub owner: knows his beers inside and out, the intricacies of the biz, how to be a first rate bartender and to tie it all together. A real fun place to go to. Already looking forward to a return.

Went to Roman's the other night because it was the one great beer bar in Milwaukee I hadn't been to yet. It's a decent enough sized place - ten or so seats at the bar, some booths and tables, and an outdoor patio that appeared heated in the winter.

First off, the tap selection is great. You can search for it online and see what they have on tap, what's coming soon, and what they have sitting in the cellar. I headed over there because they said they had KBS on tap. Got there, sat down, and chit chatted with the owner Mike who was running the bar. Had a ~8oz pour of KBS for $8.50 just before the keg kicked. Besides the KBS, there's a wide selection of American craft brews (JP, Founders, Tyranena, "No Spotted Cow - not now not ever", Bells), Belgians, and German beers. For a Friday night, it was easy to walk in at 11p and get a seat at the bar. Not too loud or too crowded.

Mike was super helpful talking to other patrons about various beers, and beers were almost always poured into an appropriate style glassware.

If Roman's serves food, I wasn't made aware of it.

A pretty cool place, if a bit out of the way. Will definitely be going back.

Great place. Not an overwhelming amount of taps, but very well thought out and had a great variety. The price for the taps was just right, and I enjoyed the place greatly. Definitely a mid-west style bar, with a few TV's, small maybe 8-12 seat bar, with booths on the side. Seems like a great local bar, and the owner is there most of the time, so can learn your name and taste profile. When driving by, be sure to keep your eyes open as you near, because from the outside it resembles a residence. Worth the hunt, you wont be disappointed.

Stopped by with my brother and our wives to check the place out. I had been checking out the tap-list regularly via their web page. I was not disappointed in the selection. All taps are easily visible on a large dry erase board over the bar. There was a great variety of different beers, some of which I hadn't tried. The place wasn't too crowded and there was ample seating and a large outdoor room for smoking cigars. My overall impression was very favorable except, the restrooms seemed were dilapidated, it was like I was in a third world country.

Roman's Pub was originally my first and only choice for a beer bar in MKE. I'm glad I learned about The Sugar Maple and went there first, though! My wife and I liked it better than Roman's.

But Roman's is very good too. 30 taps, with 3 Belgians and 4 Germans among them and the British Fuller's ESB on the beer engine. Selection was very good but not as great as I expected it to be, considering the amount of kudos this place gets.

I felt teased by the "upcoming" brews listed on the menu: Burton Baton, Founders CBS, Avery Samael, North Coast Old Stock '07, Goose Island Bourbon '09... when I asked the very nice bartender (whom I believe was Roman himself) he said those rare brews would not be tapped for months. Why list them already then?

Love the ambience, blue-collar atmosphere, very nice, no hipsters here. Great garden too.

No food, though (too bad). I tried Tyranena HopWhore and Hinterland Bourbon Barrel Scotch Ale, both local Wisconsin brews.

Prices were higher than Sugar Maple ($7-$7.50, as opposed to $5-$6), and no happy hour was available that I know of.

I would definitely come back if I were a local, but I favor Sugar Maple.

I'm happy to have finally made it out to Romans' after hearing about it constantly. This place was worth the drive for me. I made my way down to the south side and found the place on a Monday night. I met my cousin there for some Pumking on tap.

Once inside this small house that's easy to miss, you find yourself basically inside a living room. The bar is to the left and covered in massive tap arrays. To the right are benches for drinkers to sit in groups. I saw, through the window behind the bar, the outside lounge which looked nice as well as the back room with more seating available.

It was nice to meet Mike finally who is quite a blast to talk to. Fantastic service! Got a fresh beer in a squeaky clean glass. For a Bell's tulip full of Pumking, $7.50 seemed a little steep considering a 22 oz bottle costs less, but I wasn't about to complain about it considering the great conversation that came with it. That and it's the south (ish) side. It's to be expected.

As for the selection, there was plenty of great beer to be had there. Taps all over the place and bottles behind the bar. I went in knowing exactly what I wanted so I only took a light gander at the selection, but it was something worth coming back for time and time again.

Thanks Mike! Hopefully I'll see you again soon!

Amazing taps. We just left Roman's, and it was easily the best tap selection in Milwaukee (missed Sugar Maple this time around).

Friday night, there was a good crowd, fairly mixed age wise. Everyone seemed to be enjoying the awesome tap selection. I had an '08 vintage Expedition and Third Coast on tap as a nightcap...pretty sweet! Plenty more goodies, too many to choose from, Imperial Brown Goose, Torpedo, Duchesse, and a bunch i'm forgetting. Atmosphere seemed like a standard WI bar at first, yet it was stocked well with beer and cigar aficionados. The stucco walls were covered with an impressive collection of tin beer signs and breweriana. Mike was behind the bar, who was a friendly regular guy. A few booths were opposite the bar, with a few more in back. The only drawback was the smoke, but it was less smoky in the back.

Our experience was as genuine as it gets, and worth seeking out for sure. I regret not stopping at Roman's before, but I always showed up before 5pm when they open. Next time it will be an evening-only affair...

Addendum: Roman's has a "no large groups" policy that reflects the fact they are a tiny place with minimal staff on hand, this ensures equal service for everyone. To get upset and vent here after bringing in a dozen of your friends, take into consideration the circumstances, and lose the entitled attitude. Respect is a two way street.

Roman's.

We were looking to kill time before a Cubs-Brewers game, and while a bit out of the way, it was nice to finally get out to this place.

Romans' Pub is pretty much just an old house on a street full of old houses. There isn't a whole lot else around - a sleepy barber shop, a catholic high school, a divey diner.

As we waited the opening, we were greated by Milwaukee Mike as he brought us into his very divey craft beer/cigar bar. The smoke wasnt an issue as there was only one other person around who was smoking and the doors and windows were open.

Cosmetically, the place is a bit lacking - bathrooms are condemn-worthy and the place is showing its age (and character). The beer board seemed to be a big checkered white board and had about 32 taps. There are a few flat screen tv's that were a nice touch. The place probably doesnt fit more than 40 comfortably.

On to the beer...holy crap what a selection. Unquestionably the best tap selection i have seen in Wisconsin. I had 2 beers - Goose Island Imperial Brown Goose (fantastic!) and Goose Island Night Stalker. My compadre went with a 3F Dreadnaught and North Coast Old Stock Ale. There were a ton of other appealing choices as well - Goose Island Demolition (as well as 312, kolsch, IPA), Sierra Nevada Harvest and Tripel (they make a tripel?), Flying Dog Gonzo Porter, NG Imperial Saison, Tyranena BW in the Rye, and the list goes on and on.

Milwaukee Mike seems to have a gathering of regulars, as he well deserves. This place is a diamond in the rough that is Milwaukee

Went here on a lovely Saturday night kind-of expecting this place to be crowded from all the positive reviews I had read on BA and other Milwaukee sites, but it wasn't.There was a mostly 30+ crowd almost filling the mainroom in the pub area, but the bar seating and the beer garden were mostly unoccupied. There were a few folks smoking inside but the ventilation system was working splendidly, I know this since none of our party are smokers and they don't like smokey places yet nobody had any complaints. In fact, we all had a good time. It was personally nice to find out that my GF's siblings (low to mid twenties) also don't care for the pretentious nightclub scene with obnoxious idiots and music that can only be shouted over. Selection here is awesome, I got a '04 vintage SN Bigfoot barleywine that was worth every penny and then some when I got to watch my GF and her sister each make a priceless face when they had a sip. Some of the selections are overpriced though and it would make it easier to choose if they had it labeled on the board. Service was good, but I seemed to be spending alot of time waiting for the barkeep as she was working solo and only has two hands but plenty of people requesting her attention. I hope to come back to this place soon.

I was in Milwaukee for the weekend, and had Friday night free from obligations so I wanted to find a decent, mellow beer bar to try selections I cannot find on tap in MN. Wanting to avoid the Water/Brady/Summerfest scene, I found this place on Beerfly, and was rewarded for my search.

Romans is located in the South side of town, several miles away from the downtown scene, in a regular working-class neighborhood. The tavern itself is actually a converted home, the street level converted into a bar. Not a large bar, with tables to the side and two smaller rooms in back as well as a lovely porch to the side behind the bar. This tavern looks like many other working-class neighborhood taverns at first glance, until you notice the beer selection.

The beer selection is outstanding, including 30 taps. Every one, to my memory, was devoted to an American, German, or Belgian craft beer. I cannot obtain FFF in MN, so I was delighted to find several selections from that brewery here. Romans has a handy beer menu, it looks like it is updated every couple days, or whenever a tap runs out. The menu also lists several "beers in waiting" for when a line opens up, which I thought was a nice touch. I am not a cigar aficionado, but they also sell what appears to be a high-end selection of cigars on the premises as well.

The clientele is a nice mix of locals and other beer geeks that made the trip to the neighborhood because this place is a beer destination. Unpretentious is a great adjective for the scene here, unlike many other taverns with top-notch beer selections. The other patrons were having pleasant conversations about beer or the Brewer game on the large flat-screens behind the bar.

The owner that has been mentioned on several other reviews was not present as far as I could see. Instead a lovely lady was tending the bar. She was friendly and knew her beer as well as any beer geek I have ever met. She chatted up my wife & me about her beer vacation she had taken recently to Belgium.

Prices were more expensive than what you would expect for that neighborhood, but in line with other great beer bars in the Midwest that I have visited. Basically, you are getting what you pay for.

Overall, I love this place and wish I had one in my neighborhood. Highly recommended for any BA looking to get away from the crowds of the downtown Water St/Brady St area of Milwaukee.

A world class beer bar in an old Milwaukee neighborhood. Romans' specializes in draught beer with ~30 different taps all specialty beer, all fresh, all served in proper glassware, at the proper temperature, with great care. There's a nice mix of American Crafts, Belgians, and other quality imports. Also (although I don't smoke) there's a nice selection of cigars. Another nice thing is that the website is kept up-to-date so you always know what's available. Very cool little beer bar. Awesome beer selection although the owner/bartender can be your best friend or a total jerk. Too bad.

Roman's if widely known if you are a beer conisoure. But it's a place for all people who just like good beer. I had heard great things about this place and I was not disappointed.

Upon entering this bar it reminded me of a college bar, and as most reviewers have stated it's a typical south side of Milwaukee type bar, which isn't a bad thing. I would say thou that you go to romans for the beer not the atmosphere. They do have 3 big screen tv's above the bar for watching sporting events or whatever else is on.

Quality is where this place stands out. While they don't have a crazy selection what they do have is always top notch, and as the owner says he's got an ever changing array of beer. This place prides itself on having gems cellularing in the basement and he has never disappointed this reviewer.

Service was good, again as most people have said, don't go into this bar and ask for specials, or any "swill" beer, as if they do carry it you probably will get ridiculed for ordering it. This place is operated by beer conisoures period. So with while you may not have heard of some of the beers there, if you explain what style or even type of beer you like they are more than willing to tell you what you should try.

Selection in this place is ever changing, and is always good, while I may not have liked some of the beer that they were serving in the grand scale it was still exceptional beer.

** For value I gave it a bit pricey and here is why. I personally think this bar is right on tap with what they charge, Personally if your into micro brews than you know what your going to pay up front at a place like this, but most people (especially in Milwaukee) are used to the paying for Miller Lite, and the stuff that you get down on Milwaukee's Water St. DON'T LET THAT DISCOURGE YOU!! Trust me this is one place that you want to stop into and have a few.

Roman's Pub might be a bit overrated on Beeradvocate. The selection for taps is second to none in Milwaukee (and probably in southern Wisconsin), but the atmosphere and quality do not do the selection justice.

the atmosphere is decent. there is smoking, so one will smell like a cigarette upon leaving, and the decor and layout just seem like a second rate facility.

quality is good. the proper glassware is used, along with clean-ish conditions. again, the smoking ruined it for this BA, because it discounts the quality of the brews themselves.

service is good. the owner is knowledgeable, but is quick to slam any of the Milwaukee breweries for being 'boring' or 'inconsistent.

the selection is masterful. many hard to find brews on tap, and a wonderful variety. enough said.

overall, Roman's is a solid stop for hard to find brews, but do not expect to smell nice upon leaving, and do not expect anything less than an over-opinionated bartender. all things considered, Roman's is definitely worth a stop for all BAs.

Walking in, this is a fairly typical southside bar. When you glance to the left and take a solid look at the bar you realize that this place is not typical at all.

30 beers on tap (with no BMC in sight) in such a small section of the bar can be a little overwhellming at first. No need to worry because Mike (owner) and his staff are very knowledgeable about the beer selection, and the craft beer scene as a whole. Just don't ask the stupid question, "Whats good?" because he'll just give you a dirty look and say that, "Its all good". To help decipher the tap handles, he has menues on hand to help make sense of it all. If that still doesn't help he's pretty good about steering you in the right direction of something you'll like. If you default and ask for something from BMC he will inform you that he, "only carries ballwash in bottles".

True the attmoshpere may seem bland to some but lack of x-mas lights and whatever free promo crap that barowners get from the brewery adds alot of understated class. In the summertime the deck/biergarten is a very nice touch as well.

Timely service, correct glasses, reasonable prices, whats not to like? In my opinion simply the best craft beer selection in the city. Arguably (albeit barely) the best beer bar in the city!

this is basically mike romans' downstairs. it's a small, unassuming place (look for the neon flying dog sign in the window). but pick up the beer menu and you can't help but be impressed. probably 15 taps, about half import half domestic taps (no swill). prices are reasonable but might seem expensive to the untrained eye because a lot of the offerings are pretty expensive in the bottle (new holland dragon's milk, rogue batch 10,000, stuff like that). beers will run you anywhere from 4-7 bucks or so, often bigger beers like DIPAs are served in pints, but otherwise stemmed glasses get generous pours. Mike knows his shit, so feel free to ask away if you're not familiar with what is available.

the neighborhood isn't the most attractive for say a pub crawl, but with so much great beer on tap you wont need any more bars. but palm tavern is just down the street, with a short but sweet tap list and a looong and delicious bottle list emphasizing belgians.

i'd call Romans a must stop in the milwaukee area.

Wonderful place. It's the bottom of a guy's house, in a neighborhood that's about 3/4ths residential. If that sounds appealing to you, keep reading.

The owner was tending bar and he had the air about him of a guy who just does not give a fuck. The music that was playing was from an I-Pod, and even if I didn't like about half of it it was still as unpretentious as you can get. The decor was clean and the only smoke was from a cigar, heavy but pleasant.

Tap selection was astounding, including several one off and hard to find brews.

My only complaint is that the beers were a tad pricey, for the area.

The best beer bar in Milwaukee and one of the top two in Wisconsin (Madison's Maduro being the other). This is beer fanaticism at its best. Rotating selection of approximately 25 taps that ranges from the best of American craft beer to semi-obscure imports. Tap lines are always clean and proper glassware is a must. Despite all this, the atmosphere is as down-to-earth as at any corner pub. The only nit is that the place doesn't have the humongous selection of beers that some places do because Mike Romans only serves great beer on draft -- no craft beer in bottles. But if that purist mentality limits my selection just a little, more power to him. Mike will also gladly chat about the local beer scene with you -- with refreshingly uncensored opinions.

This was my week for meeting owners! Mike Romans had the stick (the bar) when I stopped in and he immediately asked me about my shutterbug status. He was concerned that perhaps I was part of a neighborhood watch group that felt that his business was a nuisance, or some equally bizarre thing. Do I look like a narc?!? Once I explained myself, he visibly relaxed and invited me to poke around to my heart’s content.

This place is the first floor of Romans’ home, and while I have been in those types of places in PA, some of them were utter dives. Not here! The place was kept up immaculately with the back room the result of a renovation and on a buttonhook left was a biergarten/wood patio with wrought iron tables and chairs with umbrellas attached to the patio for cover. There were three wooden booths along the right wall, upon entering, with the washrooms just past the booths. The wood bar started just left of the door and featured three ceramic tap towers, as well as special taps for Trumer Pils and Delirium Tremens. The back bar was all wood with shelves and drawers, especially for the various glassware, all of which Romans kept on hand. To the right of the back bar was a two-sided cooler with mostly pedestrian beer and pop, but also Grimbergen, Gouden Carolus, and Chimay Blanche et Bleu.

The draft beer selection was fantastic! There was NO crap on tap, plus Romans really knew his stuff. Bell’s was really well represented, as well as New Holland, Goose Island, Great Lakes, and Lagunitas. Others included Two Brothers and Founder’s. Lovely, just lovely.

I would be entirely remiss if I did not mention Mike Romans in greater detail. He was a barrel-chested fellow who I have no doubt would have given me the old heave-ho if I had been a creepy peepy as he first believed. By the same token, he had a great sense of humor and he was telling me about his longevity as a bar owner. At that point (August 2006), he had been in business for twenty-eight (28) years with ten (10) of those as a quality beer bar. He gave me a great quote, imparting, “My marriage and my business were both in the toilet, so I had an epiphany and saved the important one.” Ho ho. My feelings about the place and about Mike were that there were lots of places that try, but just do not get it. Mike got it. My kind of place.

Roman's is an unpretentious south Milwaukee bar with a surprise inside...Roman’s has the best selection of high-end/specialty beers on-draft in the Milwaukee area. Mike Roman consistently rotates a stock of fine craft and import beers through his 25+ tap lines. While a friend of mine described Mike as a "21st century Archie Bunker," he pays attention to the details such as correct serving temperature and proper glassware which results in a great beer drinking experience. Visitors to this site should give it at least a try whenever near the Milwaukee area.

Talk about quality and quantity. Roughly 30 taps and hardly a bad or even average one amongst them. Great, detailed list with a decent description of each beer. I sampled Hercules, Allagash Bourbon Tripel, and Black Tullip. Other options included Affligem blonde, young’s double chocolate, a couple bells, founders, great divide, some weird Germans, and several more. Our server was friendly, knowledgeable, on the spot when I needed new beer, offered samples when I had questions, the whole works. The owner was there too talking up all the beers he was excited about and how he takes pride in clean lines and fresh beer. Bottle selection was small but really bad ass. It included all the Chimays, Westmalle, Achel Blonde, a couple fruit lambics, and a half dozen other Belgians of some renown. Most of the domestic bottles were just AB or Miller products. The atmosphere is just average. Roman’s pretty much looks like every other neighborhood bar in Milwaukee. It does have a decent sized patio, which earns it a small bonus in my book. All in all a wonderful place, the best (strictly for beer) that I’ve been to in Milwaukee.

This bar is the best in Wisconsin, hands down. The selection of beers is better than some of the places I can go to in Southern California and the people are a hell of a lot nicer at times.

Upon walking in, I was greeted immediately by the owner of the bar. He was happy to help us out with the selection and finding the right beer for what we were looking for. I happened to be there at the right time and he had the Dogfish 120 IPA on tap....amazing. When it came to selection, I was blown away. He had the best beer and the right glasses, so the experience was top-notch.

The bar has a definite following among people with great taste in beers. Much different than the other corner bars in Wisconsin. The guys that come in here really know their stuff.

This place is the main reason for visiting Wisconsin. Trust me on that one.
