Hosed on Brady
1689 N. Franklin Pl., (414) 223-3919

A brand new concept in an old location, Hosed on Brady opened last fall in the spot formerly occupied by Franklin Place. Decorated with firefighter memorabilia from throughout the Milwaukee area, Hosed is a good stop for great regional Hook and Ladder beer and local hospitality.

Menu: Hosed on Brady boasts a standard menu with tap beer, full liqour selection and a few and far between wines by the glass.

Price: This is the perfect stop if you're looking to grab a cheap drink. There are specials nearly every night and prices are meant to attract neighbors and visitors alike.

When to go: Located next to the firestation on Brady Street and Franklin, owner Donna Olson pours free shots each and every time the trucks go out on a run. Look for great happy hour deals and game day specials.

Dress: Casual is key here. This is your local, neighborhood pub so feel free to come straight from work, in Sunday sweats or jeans and T-shirts.

Don't miss: Serving New York's Hook and Ladder beer on tap, a portion of every beer sold is donated to firefighter burn treatment and care. 

Parking: Metered parking is available along Brady Street and there;'s street parking on Franklin Place.

Maureen Post Special to staff writer Maureen Post grew up in Wauwatosa. A lover of international and urban culture, Maureen received a bachelor’s degree in sociology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

After living on the east side of Madison for several years, Maureen returned to Milwaukee in 2006.

After a brief stint of travel, Maureen joined as the city’s oldest intern and has been hooked ever since. Combining her three key infatuations, Milwaukee’s great music, incredible food and inspiring art (and yes, in that order), Maureen’s job just about fits her perfectly.

Residing in Bay View, Maureen vehemently believes the city can become fresh and new with a simple move across town.
