Notes: Eagle Park Brewing was founded by two brothers who live to write music and drink beer. Like their band, the brewing started in the garage, and like their songs, the beer tells a story. It’s a story of dedication and commitment to the craft beer community that comes through in every pour, every toast, and every taste.

A cool place in a nice neighborhood area in Milwaukee. Cool back patio and good on site parking. Had 15 beers on tap which were high quality. Package beer to go too. Great beer. Worth going if in Milwaukee.

Visited with my wife on a recent trip to Holland, MI and Milwaukee, WI.

Tried the following:
Eagle Park Demon Haze (draft)
Eagle Park Apricot Peach Sour (sample)
Eagle Park East? I Thought You Said West! (draft)

Beers ranged from decent to great. Diverse tap lineup offered something for all tastes. Didn’t eat here. Welcoming, family-friendly atmosphere in the taproom; quite busy on our visit. Service was good as the bartender was happy to provide samples and she did an awesome job recommending beers for my oenophile wife. Our overall experience was satisfying, and we would likely come back.

this was my favorite brewery in Milwaukee. They have to be known for their milkshake IPA's and milkshake sours. They are both fantastic. Almost everything I had was great. I did not eat any food so I have no idea how it was. The service was nice. I went there twice. The second time was a Saturday afternoon and it was packed. Will be back.

Spent a couple hours at Eagle Park last week while in town for work.

Cool vibe. Wide open tap room with bar and seating area. A litte but of an industrial feel. Very chill. Big music influence as depicted by decorations on the wall. It was a Tuesday night. Got there around 8PM and it was decently full, but definitely picked up as the night went on. There is also a nice outdoor seating area which in my book is a huge bonus.

Everyone working there was super nice.

Had three beers. A Pilsner which was pretty good, but a little sweet for my style preference. The strawberry milkshake IPA, which is not my favorite style, was very well executed. For me the star of my evening was the DDH Citra on the Dock of the Bay. A really excellent NEIPA. I wish I had more time to check out more of their IPA’s.

The menu did seem focused on IPA’s and I think most of not all NE style. So, if that’s your jam you must visit Eagle Park when in Milwaukee.

The brewery is in a nice neighborhood near Brady St. area in Milwaukee. The day we were there (Cubs playing the brewers, Brady St. Fest and Milwaukee Beer Fest all happening nearby) all the tables were packed, as was the outdoor deck area (which is nice). The vibe seemed to be a mix of beer nerds, casual drinkers and people in strollers with babies. The negative I would say is, even though the place wasn't completely slammed, you could barely hear someone sitting across from you. It was very loud. If the place had been even more busy, it wouldn't be possible to talk.

There was a solid selection of 12 beers on draft and 6 different ones to-go. Beer selections were basically the newer trendier styles: NE IPAs, pastry stouts, a mead... I think even a hefe. Don't come here expecting the traditional stuff. Food was good from what we ordered (fries appetizer, which was cut on-site and you could tell was fresh) and their Brisket Sammy was quite tasty.

Overall, a nice spot that I will visit again, but it is not necessarily somewhere I would go to grab a beer if I wanted to chat with someone. The noise really stuck out with how loud it. But what also stuck out was how good their beer is.

Visited with my brother on a Thursday afternoon. I got a couple of flights which turned out to be too much beer; I like the idea of 8 oz pours but there's no way drinking 6 of those is a good idea, especially when you're dealing with abv up to 11%. Overall the beer was very good although the two NEIPAs I tried were not as impressive as I expected based on Eagle Park's reputation. The karate chopped fries were pretty good and the cheese curds were amazing. Prices are slightly high but not exorbitant.

Cool little craft brewery with the typical industrial feel. Big skylight in the taproom is a nice touch and ample parking is a plus.

Think there were about a dozen beers on tap when I stopped in leaning heavily towards hazy IPAs and sours. A bit bandwagonny but everything I tried was good.

Didn’t eat so can’t comment on the food but people next to me at the bar seemed to enjoy theirs.

Awesome space. Awesome beer. Awesome people. I hope I can go back next time I am in Milwaukee. Reminds me a lot of my hometown favorite, Masthead. Probably some hometown bias in my review but I found Eagle Park to be just slightly less amazing than Masthead. Even so I would be more than happy to drink their beer on the regular if I lived there.

Tap room with a bar, high-tops, tables and couches. There is also outdoor patio seating. Quality of the beer is good to great. Service was friendly and helpful. There is a selection of twenty beers on tap. Window for food orders and carry out beer. The menu is small but everything is made from scratch and has unique twist.

Unique place with very good beer is the best way to describe EPB. Located on the second floor of an old industrial 5 story building on the border of MKE and Bayview. After pushing the call button to get let in you work your way up 1.5 flights of stairs and down a long, stark hallway. Once you enter the taproom things become much more inviting and cozy. Its a small space but very comfortable. Beer quality is top notch - both IPAs were excellent (Set List and Immortal Sou) as well as the milk stout (Yabba Dabba Do). If you're looking for a cool place to enjoy good beer in the Bayview area in a unique space this is it. Not sure how long they'll be here as I overheard the beertender saying they're moving in 3 months. Worth the drive from Waukesha.

Update: Visited the new location on Hamilton St on 10/20/18. Great location, great space. Place was packed with everyone having a good time. Had the brisket sandwich. Some of the best brisket meat I have ever had. The only downside was the bun it was served on. Think Wonder Bread in a circular shape. Utter shame to waste such great meat on such a shitty bun. Beer was topnotch as usual.

A group of us checked out this brewery inside of warehouse. Brothers offering some great craft brew ... big flavors and awesome selections. Several types of ipas, sours and porters. The milkshake stout and berry milkshake were amazing. The taproom was chill and made me want to hang out and never leave. These young brothers running this place are going places. Stop by this place and you will be impressed.
