This is a belly-up type tavern that does its main job very well and that is serve good beer (and spirits if you are into that). Move along if you you want chique and hip.

Their tap list isn't very long but it is of high quality. Had a glass of Founders CBS followed by a glass of FFF Dreadnaught. Doesn't get much better than that. Quality was top notch - fresh beer with nearly spotless glassware. Service was friendly and prompt. I also got to chat with the owner for awhile too, which was cool.

For kicking back in an unpretentious atmosphere while enjoying good beer, this place is hard to beat. (602 characters)

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. (694 characters)
