We opened in 2017 in the iconic Milwaukee Gas Light buildings on the city’s west side. Originally housing a coal gasification plant, these historic facilities were responsible for powering street lights throughout the city. After 2 years of renovation we were able to breathe life back into these buildings while maintaining and highlighting the architectural history and design. Our full lineup of award-winning craft beers and hard seltzers can be found throughout the city but best enjoyed at the source. The taproom offers sightlines into the brewhouse and our patio offers an idyllic setting alongside Milwaukee’s Menomonee River. Our proximity to the ball park is met with free shuttle rides to all home games.
