Our urban production brewery and taproom

Our East Side production brewery and taproom opened in June of 2016, and has since already gone through a number of expansions that include a rooftop patio, Good City Hall and doubling of production capacity. 

What's on Tap

Updated: 4/22


IPA 6.5%

Simcoe and Centennial hops lend a very balanced profile tending toward pine and citrus.


Mosaic Pale Ale 5.2%

Single malt. Single hop. Character of juicy tropical fruit and resinous pine undertone.


Porter 5.4%

A classic robust porter with a clean and balanced roasted malt profile, right down the middle between chocolate and coffee-like. Get lost in the details that matter. Seek the Good.


Pilsner 5.2%

Crisp, clean tone that is light-colored and light-bodied with German Tettnang and Saphir hops.


Double IPA 8.5%

Dank hop aroma. Tropical fruit and distinct pineapple character backed up with a floral/tangerine hop flavor.

Clean Cut

Session IPA 4.7%

Low gravity Session IPA that showcases Amarillo, Citra and Centennial for a fruity/pine/citrus profile.


IPA 6%%

Featuring Idaho 7 hops, this seasonal IPA pushes past the long winter months with a hop forward character. Push the envelope. Seek the Good.

Smoked Baltic Porter

Baltic Porter 7.4%

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. 

Varietal: Simcoe

Double IPA 8.3%

Focusing on Simcoe hops, this bright and sweet double IPA has enough pine character to make you think you are lost in the woods, with hints of citrus and passionfruit to make you want to camp there.

Lowlands Amber Ale

Amber Ale 5.5%

A classic American-style Amber ale is brewed in collaboration with the Lowlands Restaurant Group. This beer features Cascade hops and a blend of U.S. and German malts for smooth, caramel flavors. 


Nitro Irish Red 5%

Just in time for St. Patrick's Day comes this smooth, subtly spicy, and earthy red ale available on nitro.

Hollywood Nights

Gluten-free Blonde IPA 7.2%

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.


Barleywine 11.5%

Brewed with malted rye for a distinct red color and subtle spicy note. Balanced and deceptively drinkable.

Lord Lyon Scotch Ale

Rye Barrel-Aged Scotch Ale 8.8%

Aged in Rittenhouse Rye Whiskey barrels.


Centennial Triple IPA 10%

Our first Scarce brew is a centennial triple IPA, hugely hopped with a gustatory explosion of flowers, citrus, and pine. Clocking in at a deceptive 10%, this behemoth of an IPA is effortlessly enjoyable.

BikeTrail Bock

Maibock 7%

BikeTrail Bock is a beer brewed for the trails. A portion of BikeTrail Bock sales will be donated to Rails-to-Trails Conservancy to support the Route of the Badger, a 700+ mile trail network developing in Southeast Milwaukee.

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