Brenner Brewing opened in Milwaukee’s Walkers Point neighborhood – and its Latin Quarter district – in 2014.
Founder Mike Brenner injects Milwaukee’s arts and music scene into his beer experiences, so each style of beer features the artwork of a local artist and comes with a soundtrack featuring the music of local bands. The Tasting Room offers plenty of space to socialize, imbibe, and explore the 25,000 sq ft arts incubator which features a 2,000 sq ft contemporary art gallery and 20 artists’ studio spaces. Fresh cheese curds – still squeaky – are delivered regularly from the Clock Shadow Creamery, which sits only blocks away as the only urban cheesemaking operation in Wisconsin.
Popular brews include the Bacon Bomb, a Rauchbier that is technically vegan but tastes like bacon (this could change the world), a City Fox Pale Ale, and an Imperial Stout with 13% ABV.
You’ll find Brenner Brewing and the Tasting Room on 5th Street less than a block north of where Highway 38 meets Highway 59/Greenfield Avenue in Milwaukee’s “Latin Quarter” district, less than a mile south of downtown Milwaukee and the Harley-Davidson Museum. Highway 32 is four blocks east, Highway 145 begins less than 2 miles north downtown, and Highway 57 begins two miles west.
