Celebrate classic Milwaukee at the new Bomb Shelter.

The Bomb Shelter opens Saturday

In February we told you about the Bomb Shelter, a new beer-centric old-school Walker's Point tavern opening in the former Monkey Bar space at 1517 S. 2nd St.

Owner and local beer aficionado Greg Landig has been working hard all spring and says that the bar officially opens its doors this Saturday, June 21 at 3 p.m. The big grand opening party is yet to come, however.

Bar manager Tom Wright tells us they've got a few weekly specials planned:
Sunday: Polka party
Monday: Retro night
Tuesday: Spirits-tasting club
Wednesday: Beer-tasting club
Thursday-Saturday: TBD

When Landig plans a "retro night," he's not talking Lycra bodysuits and Poison hits. His bar honors "classic Milwaukee" and pays tribute to the classic corner varieties that flourished during a time when locally-brewed beer seeped from the city's pores.

The Bomb Shelter is hosting the Milwaukee Homebrew Competition this July. Are you a master brewer? All the details are right here.
