Milwaukee Ale House

Milwaukee Ale House Review

As soon as the temperature permits, locals flock to the dual decks of this brew and food favorite. But no matter the weather, it's a happening spot for locally crafted beer, like Louie's Demise, a malty amber ale, and the Irish-style Sheepshead Stout. If you're staying for lunch or dinner, you'll also find flavors of this stout in the signature pot roast. Wednesday and Saturday are prime rib nights. Other options include pasta, pizza, burgers, chicken pot pie and a late-night menu of fancied-up bar food like nachos topped with beer-marinated chicken. Live music Thursday, Friday and Saturday runs the gamut from classic rock to jazz (cover charges typically start at $5).

  • Chicago and Where Else

    We've never been to Chicago other than changing planes.

    We'd like to go for a few days but that's a lot of flying to spend 3-4 days in one place.

    Any add-ons in the area?

    Thanks. Read more
