There will be more beer on tap in Riverwest beginning next week.
Black Husky Brewing has officially made its transition from Pembine to Milwaukee. The new brewery and taproom, located at 909 E. Locust St., will officially open to the public on Wednesday, Aug. 3 beginning at 3 p.m.
The space's decor will pay homage to the brewery's former home in Pembine, Wisconsin with details including a log bar made by co-owner Tim Eichinger, who owns the brewery with his wife Toni. The space will also pay respect to the brewery's namesake, with an image of the original "Black Husky" emblazoned on the wall behind the bar.
Once open, the taproom will offer eight Black Husky brews on tap initially, with more on the way.
The opening will follow a private 2:30 p.m. ceremonial keg-tapping and ribbon cutting ceremony with Mayor Tom Barrett and Ald. Nik Kovac.
The Eichingers admit they've really fallen in love with their new neighborhood over the course of the past year, and they're looking forward to providing a neighborhood spot for folks to gather and socialize.
"Milwaukee always was a city of neighborhoods, and we’re really getting back to that," Tim notes. "There will be people from out of town who come and visit, but that’s not our focus. We’re really here to serve the neighborhood."
Black Husky’s initial hours will be Tuesday through Thursday from 3 to 9 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 3 to 10 p.m. and Sunday from 3 to 9 p.m. (on a seasonal basis).
