Brewers Hill is a small, diverse community north of Downtown on the Milwaukee River. The name is derived from the large number of brewery workers (and owners) that once inhabited the area.

The neighborhood is bordered by the Harambee neighborhood on the north, the Riverwest neighborhood on the east, the Milwaukee River on the south, and Martin Luther King Drive on the west.
