Stopped by here after a wedding in Wisconsin and I have to say I was very impressed. This place sports a very respectable 60 taps, and among them you’re bound to find some excellent options. New Glarus, Three Floyds, Bell’s, Founders, and several local breweries were well-represented on the tap list. Nothing was extremely rare, but if you’re complaining about stuff like Raspberry Tart, New Glarus Unplugged beers, and limited local stuff on tap, you’ve probably become a bit too jaded. They offer flights of 4 six-ounce pours for $12, which is money if you’re a ticker.

The hipster bartender was a nice guy who gave great service and knew beer very well. No complaints there. The ambiance is really great. Lots of space with comfortable seating, nice decor, and a good outdoor area with picnic tables and a ping (not beer) pong table. Overall this is a bar Milwaukee should be proud of. Don’t miss it if you’re in town - you really have no excuse as it’s right next to I-94, I-43, and the airport.

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.
