In Dining

Shorewood officially has its own Milwaukee Brat House.

Milwaukee Brat House now open in Shorewood

Milwaukee Brat House is now open in the space at 4022 N. Oakland Ave., which formerly housed the Oakcrest Tavern. And the house was hopping earlier today, as eager diners got their first taste of the new venue.

The new space is bright and airy with windows that open onto the sidewalk, plenty of televisions to watch sports games and a pool table adjacent to the bar.

The Brat House Menu certainly has bratwurst, in the form of a shareable sausage sampler plate ($15.95), classic and specialty sausage sandwiches ($8.95 to $10.95) and build-your-own sausages (priced $7.95 and up, depending on toppings). But, there are also plenty of other options from which to choose, including appetizers like wings, battered cheese curds, loaded tater tots, Frito pie and jumbo Bavarian pretzels.

Sandwiches and wraps include a Philly cheesesteak, pulled pork sandwich and vegetable salad wrap. Meanwhile, burgers, soups and salads round out the options.

A children's menu includes Kraft mac and cheese, hot dogs, grilled cheese sandwiches and chicken tenders priced at $5.

On the sweeter side, there's Simma's cheesecake ($6.95), a Point Root Beer float ($5.95) and vanilla ice cream topped with chocolate syrup ($3.95).

Shuttles and tailgating

The location will also offer shuttles to both Brewers and Packers regular season home games during which shuttle-goers have access to the Brat House's heated garage, full bar and five mounted televisions allowing attendees to get in on all the game action during the tailgate.

The next shuttle and tailgate package at Lambeau Field will take place on Nov. 6 for the Packers game versus the Lions. Kick-off is at 7:30 p.m.; shuttles depart for Green Bay at 3 p.m. and feature all-you-can-drink beer and soft drinks on the two hour trip to Lambeau. Guests are asked to show up one hour before shuttle departure. Tickets and information can be found online.

Milwaukee Brat House is open seven days a week from 11 a.m. until bar time. The kitchen will be open until about 1 or 1:30 a.m. most days.
