Downtown: Water Street Brewery's new look

When I see cool, new designs in Downtown I have to give props.  So, hats off to Water Street Brewery, 1101 N. Water St., on its new facade.  The new wooden awnings look great and provide a classier look to that stretch of Water Street. 

I’ve driven and walked by several times recently, and I've got to say that the rich, deep wooden look catches my eye and truly stands out.   The building also has a new coat of paint and lighting that enhances the exterior.  

All of these improvements are needed and welcomed, and they should help better position the longtime brew pub once the new Bartolotta gastropub opens in the fall at the old Eagan's space.  

Water Street Brewery, by the way, has been serving beer and food on Water Street in Downtown Milwaukee since 1987.  It will celebrate 25 years in 2012. It’s a bit of an icon, and with its massive collection of beer memorabilia it’s also a fun and historic place to visit.

Owner R.C. Schmidt also owns and runs Rudy’s, Louise’s, Trinity, SoLo and The Harp.

34565 You know what would be an interesting article for OMC??? One that included interviews with former R.C. Schmidt employees and told their stories of how wonderful and kind he is.
