In Bars & Clubs

Milwaukee's best new bar of 2016 is also a new franchise to the city.

Milwaukee's best new bar, 2016

"Bar Month" at OnMilwaukee is back for another round, brought to you by Great Northern Distilling: grain to glass spirits, handmade in Wisconsin. The whole month of March, we're serving up intoxicatingly fun articles on bars and clubs – including guides, the latest trends, bar reviews, the results of our Best of Bars readers poll and more. Grab a designated driver and dive in!

Franchise owner Nick Marking made a lot of happy drinkers when he brought more than 80 beers on tap to The Brass Tap. The bar and restaurant, which opened in a Greenfield strip mall last January, is the first Brass Tap franchise to open in Wisconsin.

Don't worry about being a beer snob in this bar – all staff must go through a "beer school" prior to starting and will happily chat with you on why you should go in one frothy direction or another.

A patio was attached at the end of last spring and brings a cozy outdoor seating element to the southwest corner of Milwaukee County.

The OnMilwaukee editorial staff chose new Riverwest option Company Brewing for its tasty pours and powerful cocktails.

Bottoms up, Milwaukee!

Good call - Nick is a really nice guy, likes to interact with his customers. I only wish this place was closer to home for me... OnMilwaukee - should add his fish fry to your list, too - it's pretty good.
