Not sure what more can be said about Palm Tavern. It is far and away my favorite Milwaukee bar - but that has as much to do with the bartenders as it does the selection.

Palm is a small place with 25 taps. No TVs, but always eclectic music playing. The taps are all quality and include a selection of beers that should appeal to most drinkers. Dan and John are incredible, attentive bartenders who go out of their way to make sure that guests find what they're looking for. Not sure about something? They'll happily pour you a sample. Prices are good, and totally fair for the area. If beer isn't your thing, they have a huge selection of scotch and whiskey.

Seriously, check this place out.

Quality - The beer is fresh and served in the proper glassware and the bar is clean

Service - The bartenders are knowledgeable and willing to go over the beers available and really seem to have a passion for craft beer

Selection - The selection is fantastic with some of the best offerings in WI. Such greats have included: The Bruery - Humulus Lager, 3Floyd's Zombie Dust, Founders Breakfast Stout... The list goes on

Overall - Just a great little beer bar that is perfect for kicking back and enjoy a quality beer served up by a knowledgeable staff

The Palm is more my speed. If you don't know exactly where you're going this place is easy to miss so keep an eye open. A cozy little spot with polished brass and row upon row of whiskey. The taplist has been excellent on every visit and you couldn't ask for nicer bartenders. Every draft is kept up to date on the chalkboard at the end of the bar with no shortage of quality suds to choose from.

The small, homey, comfortable quarters make The Palm a place you could easily spends a few hours on a bar stool talking the day away with friends and locals while putting away great beer with the occasional whiskey pour mixed in here and there. Highly recommended.
