CraftBeer.com – the top beer-focused website from the Brewers Association trade group – once again announced readers' picks for "Great American Beer Bars."
The Brass Tap in Greenfield won the honor for Wisconsin. "The Brass Tap offers over 200 craft beers from around the globe in a neighborhood atmosphere that feels both relaxed and upscale. Staff beer experts can answer just about any question you throw their way," reads the article.
In late 2018 / early 2019, 7,000 CraftBeer.com readers nominated their favorite craft beer bar in their state based on atmosphere, staff, beer selection and events.
Nick Marking opened The Brass Tap, which is a franchise, in 2015. OnMilwaukee's Lori Fredrich reviewed its fish fry last year.

Molly Snyder grew up on Milwaukee's East Side and today, she lives in the Walker's Point neighborhood with her partner and two sons.
As a full time senior writer, editorial manager and self-described experience junkie, Molly has written thousands of articles about Milwaukee (and a few about New Orleans, Detroit, Indianapolis, Boston and various vacation spots in Wisconsin) that range in subject from where to get the best cup of coffee to an in-depth profile on the survivors of the iconic Norman apartment building that burned down in the '90s.
She also once got a colonic just to report on it, but that's enough on that.
Always told she had a "radio voice," Molly found herself as a regular contributor on FM102, 97WMYX and 1130WISN with her childhood radio favorite, Gene Mueller.
Molly's poetry, essays and articles appeared in many publications including USA Today, The Writer, The Sun Magazine and more. She has a collection of poetry, "Topless," and is slowly writing a memoir.
In 2009, Molly won a Milwaukee Press Club Award. She served as the Narrator / writer-in-residence at the Pfister Hotel from 2013-2014. She is also a story slam-winning storyteller who has performed with The Moth, Ex Fabula and Risk!
When she's not writing, interviewing or mom-ing, Molly teaches tarot card classes, gardens, sits in bars drinking Miller products and dreams of being in a punk band again.
