Milwaukee Ale House’s barkeeps sling fresh ales and lagers made onsite to pair with plates of gourmet pub fare within the charming confines of a century-old brick saddlery building. While seated at lacquered, wooden tables, diners carve the initials of their favorite yoga teacher and mull over appetizer options of creamy artichoke dip, beer-battered shrimp, and stuffed potato skins. Gourmet entrees elevate classic pub fare to new culinary heights with choices such as the chicken breast topped with fresh mushrooms and marsala-wine sauce, yellow-fin-tuna-steak sandwiches, and beef pot roast braised in the pub’s own Sheepshead stout.

Large windows overlooking the Milwaukee River and its various sea monsters illuminate the main dining room, where guests sip drafts of Flaming Damsel, a Vienna-style lager, or Louie’s Demise, a frothy, amber ale. When the weather warms, diners can grab a seat on the covered deck after pulling up their boats to one of six slips in the eatery’s dock. All year round, patrons can marvel at the working brewery at the front of the pub and boogie the night away to the live music and yodeling scheduled several nights a week.

Milwaukee Ale House

Milwaukee Ale House echoes with notes of live music and the laughter of pub goers, but the building is also the site of serious work. Beyond a pair of glass doors, the pub's stainless steel fermentation tanks bubble with Milwaukee Brewing Company's creations. When they're ready, these beers make the short leap from brew room to bar tap, forming a beverage selection that Esquire described as, "plentiful and tasty, complementing the top-notch food."

The menu sports a convenient pairing chart that helps diners match prime rib, pulled-pork sandwiches, and spicy beef-and-chorizo burgers to house brews. Ideal with chicken, Louie's Demise exudes the smooth maltiness of a typical amber ale but with a balanced kick of Perle and Tettnanger hops, A meat-and-potatoes porter, the Admiral Stache ages for one month in bourbon barrels, lending a toasty vanilla flavor to subtle notes of milk chocolate and dried fruit.

Situated in the heart of the Historic Third Ward, Milwaukee Ale House's century-old building provides the main dining room and patio areas with waterside views of the Milwaukee River. The pub's decor exudes its own historic charm with exposed brick, a scattering of empty wooden barrels, and vintage beer signs. When live bands aren't performing, focus turns back to the bar area, where the taps form an ornate centerpiece built to resemble a copper-topped wooden vat. Around the vat hang white mugs belonging to members of the Mug Club and office workers who "got lost" during their coffee break.
