That's so groovy baby! The inside flow looks disjointed with some Japanese-styled surroundings with a more dominant "groovy" feel, however the Sunday I visited was rocking. Most of the tables were occupied, me and a few friends grabbed some of the last seats of the twisty shaped bar, and good feels and people around us. There is a outdoor patio as well, but this being March in Milwaukee, was not being used at the time.

The taplist plays over 40 beers. A lot of Milwaukee brewed beers on the list with the likes of Component, Vennture, and New Barons, just outside Milwaukee like Bierhaus, and beyond with Revolution, New Belgium, and 18th Street. Beer prices are on the higher side of things considering that most of the beer pours are smaller 12 ounce sizes, and even getting into dollar an ounce in 8 ounce sizes. But there's no question that there's very good beer being served at Sugar Maple. Good bartender service and easy to scan QR codes for drink menus compliment this place I would recommend.

Came here with my wife during a recent trip to Holland, MI and Milwaukee, WI.

Tried the following over the course of two visits:
Vintage Gotter Otter EPA (draft)
Epic Son Of A Baptist - Coffee Stout w/ Cocoa Nibs (nitro)
Three Floyds Backhanded Panther (draft)
Three Floyds Pride & Joy Mild Ale (draft)
Lagunitas One Hitter Series: Phase Change (draft)

Beers ranged from very good to mind-blowing. Tap selection was one of the best I’ve come across in the last few years. Quirky, artsy atmosphere with awesome music (not too loud) and ample seating throughout. Service was top notch as both bartenders engaged us and they were happy to provide samples. They also made great beer recommendations. Our overall experience was incredible, and we would certainly come back. A first-rate beer bar.

An American craft beer bar that has a sleek, wood-accented bar and a relaxed atmosphere. They have sixty craft beers on tap from around the U.S. The service was friendly and helpful. I did not try any food. Highly recommended if you are in the neighborhood.

We went in the middle of the afternoon and had entire (huge) bar to ourselves. Cool classic rock on the radio and a most informative friendly barkeep. Seating on the sides if you don't want a bar stool. And 30 taps from around Wisconsin, (including the # 1,3,and 6 highest rated Wisconsin beers)and the country, 4 bottles and one can. Full service liquor bar as well as wine. Will definitely go back!

Always busy, great beer selection. Nearly impossible to get service, bartenders have ignored me and there isn't a wait staff to bring drinks to your seats. Its also always too loud to hold a conversation.

Awesome. Just awesome. Amazing selection of craft beers on tap, knowledgeable staff that is uber friendly and well versed on their selections and how things work as well as what other options are around them. On my trip here the bartender took me downstairs to see the inner workings of the tap system (awesome) and then recommended a fantastic taqueria around the corner to grab some food. 2 flights later I was so happy with the decision to come here.

Great beer selection. Lot of hipsterness going on. Not as good as Roman's or Burnhearts (IMHO), but close.
