Milwaukee Ale House

Well, hello Milwaukee Ale House! This long-time brewpub made an impressive showing against four-time winner BelAir Cantina and took the prize for 2019 with flying colors, winning by nearly 150 votes.

Need we list the reasons? Milwaukee Ale House has been a staple in the Historic Third Ward since 1997 offering guests a great patio, large comfortable bar and an impressive slate of live music and events. And if those aren't reasons enough, the well-rounded tap list, snack-worthy menu and laid back atmosphere just add to its allure. 

The top five OnMilwaukee readers' favorites is rounded out by BelAir Cantina, The Vanguard, Swingin' Door Exchange – also the OnMilwaukee editors' pick – and Goodkind.
