Enjoy tasty, trendy food and house-made beer

Hinterland Erie Street Gastropub, an offshoot of the original Hinterland in Green Bay, became Milwaukee's first gastropub when it opened five years ago. Since then, it has done very well. The interior features an inviting bar and a dining room...

Where to go, where to go, on St. Drinking's Day… Patrick's Day? We definitely want to sham-rock it, as the holiday is up there with Halloween, New Year's and Mardi Gras as one of the top party days of the year. And so it goes in Milwaukee, one of the...

As sales spike, festivals raise a glass to microbrews

Perhaps the most telling sign of how bad the economy got in the late 2000s is that consumers cut back on an indulgence that historically had been one of the most recession-proof: beer. Sales of beer fell by more than 2% in 2009, and by about another 1% last year...

Enjoy pizza, beer and more along the Kinnickinnic River

About a year ago, the Horny Goat Brewing Co. joined the proud tradition of Wisconsin-crafted beers and introduced a new brand to the area. In October 2009 the Horny Goat Hideaway opened in a former industrial building located on the banks of the Kinnickinnic River. With its fun, pub atmosphere, this spot could well change the image of this gritty, industrial neighborhood. The two-story interior features walls that have been stripped down to their basic brick. A small bar that...

How PBR rose through word-of-mouth campaign

From 1978 to 2001, Pabst Blue Ribbon was a brand in decline. It wasn’t hip, it hadn’t yet developed that retro cachet we all know it to possess today, and it certainly wasn’t selling. That all changed when Pabst Brewing Co. launched a word-of-mouth marketing campaign that prompted...

Liquid culture topped with foam

Born and bred in Wisconsin, I’ve had my fair share of exposure to beer. As a child, I vividly recall fetching bottles for my father and uncles from the cases of Old Milwaukee in the basement. In high school, there were the quintessential Midwestern field parties where small-town kids met in the dark to get wasted. (Side note: I was an...
