Every startup has a story. The Good City story is about a love for excellent beer and a commitment to the city of Milwaukee that began back in 2008.
Seek the Good
We set out to build a brewery around the motto "Seek the Good." We asked ourselves, "what would it look like to run a business as if we'd been given a key to the city?" We decided this means three values as a brewery: (1) pursuing excellence, (2) prioritizing relationships, and (3) engaging our local place.
Seek the Good Saturday is a monthly Saturday morning service project that our team organizes and invites the public to participate in.
Drink for Good is a taproom program that shines a spotlight on a non profit for one month. Every Thursday for the month, $1 of beer sales from 6pm to close at our East Side taproom is donated to the nonprofit.
Speak the Good Podcast tells the stories of risk takers and others who inspire us to live out these values and who are actively making Milwaukee a Good City.
