Hollywood Nights

Gluten-free Blonde IPA 7.2% Crowler Available

Brewed by gluten-free brewery Alt Brew in Madison, WI, this blonde IPA is hop heavy with a clean herbal flavor and beautiful blonde color. Citrus notes balance the smooth bitterness for an amazing finish. Available only in bottles for taproom consumption. Not available to go.

Smoked Baltic Porter

Baltic Porter 7.4% Crowler Available

Hailing from Eastern Europe and brewed as a lager, this version of a porter is stronger than the traditional English style of beer. The dark, roasted malts allow for a big body and smooth mouthfeel. We balanced this beer with smoked malts for a hearty, late winter sipper. 

Mama Tried

Pale Ale Light 4.5% Crowler Available

A custom-built beer for the best bike show around. A crushable, light-bodied ale designed to celebrate the Mama Tried Motorcycle Show in the good city of Milwaukee.

BFG Barleywine

Bourbon Barrel-Aged Barleywine 12% Crowler Available

We aged our strong but friendly BFG barleywine in Elijah Craig bourbon barrels for over a year. This results in a huge beer with a complex balance of a strong caramel malt body with the bourbon char and vanilla from the barrel. 

We've built an urban taproom to enjoy fresh beer in the heart of Milwaukee's East Side.

Located on Farwell Avenue in the heart of Milwaukee's vibrant East Side, we have built an urban taproom with the same meticulousness that we use to brew our beer. The result is an open concept brewery where customers feel like they are a part of the brewing process. You can expect a family friendly environment, fresh beer, delicious food, and an atmosphere that fosters good conversation and community.
