Pride Points: Brat House gets a shout out in USA Today

For the ninth straight year, October is Dining Month on OnMilwaukee, presented by the restaurants of Potawatomi Hotel & Casino. All month, we're stuffed with restaurant reviews, dining guides, delectable features, chef profiles and unique articles on everything food, as well as voting for your "Best of Dining 2015."

Milwaukee may be on the rise as a food city, but it still pays to be proud of our old school traditions, including our sausage and beer.

An article published in USA Today yesterday highlights a few of the reasons why.

In "Milwaukee Brat House: Wisconsin classics done right," writer Larry Olmstead highlights one of Old World Third Street's most classic stops:  Milwaukee Brat House.

"For the sausage lover (or beer lover) it is almost impossible to go wrong at Milwaukee Brat House," he writes, giving the popular restaurant a rating of "YUM!" (on a scale which includes the choices: Blah, OK, Mmmm, Yum! and OMG!)

Olmsted cites highlights like the bratwurst Reuben, tiger sauce hot wings, beer cheese soup and locally brewed beer. He also gives a shout-out to Usinger's Sausage, cheese curds and Lakefront Brewery's IPA.

Pretty sure he hit that one right on the head.
