We have been to many local breweries around Wisconsin to support local beer. When we decided to do a Pearl Street Brewery tour, we were initially excited because we liked the beer. However, this ended up being one of the worst experiences we have ever had.

Apparently they have been in this historical building for a few years, but the atmosphere is that of a fraternity house basement; neglected and bare. There was only one bartender who was responsible for filling beers, growlers and setting up tours. Thankfully we got there early because it took a very long time to be helped.

When the short and pathetic tour was over, we tried buying a few packs of beer to bring home. Again we waited and waited to be helped. There were now two people working behind the bar. After watching multiple people be helped who had either just walked up to the bar or who had arrived after us, we left the packs of beer on the bar and left.

I want to support local beer, but I can't give respect where it isn't deserved. Since it starts at the top, I can't imagine how the owners operate and carry themselves. It is reflected in their facility and their employees. A huge disappointment.

I may be biased because this was the first tasting room I have been to, but I love this place. Great people, great atmosphere, great beer! Awesome live music on weekends. Ride your bike to the brewery on Wed and your first pints free...bring in your receipt of a six pack purchased at a grocery store, and your first pints free...Did I mention that its ANY beer on tap that's FREE, even their specialty stuff! If you bring in 10 recycled cases of PSB they will fill your Growler for free. Stop by on Thursdays and they serve free hot wings! This place has it all. Pearl Street will always be near and dear to me! Cheers!
