Horny Goat Brewing Company's Horny Hideaway opened less than a year ago in the former Pump House, 2011 S. 1st St., and it has already carved out a niche for itself as Milwaukee’s best patio.

Located along the Kinnickinnic River’s south bank, the Horny Goat’s patio is believed to be the largest in the city, featuring a full, enclosed bar, volleyball courts, corn hole pit, boat slips and fire pits. Plush couches, bar seating, boardwalk tables and picnic tables offer lots of seating, but it’s still not enough on most warm nights when the patio is absolutely packed with partiers.

The view of the river from just about anywhere on the patio is spectacular and worth a visit. editors' choice: Barnacle Bud's
