Tied-houses - taverns built and owned by breweries - helped make Milwaukee a city of corner bars. More than a century after the tied-house boom in Brew City, these structures have become an iconic architectural feature of the city, too. Here we look at some Schlitz taverns.
Dehne's upper 90
Back in the '70s, it was a dusty and sleepy wino bar. You could find more excitement in a convent on a Saturday night. Since then, the historic space has had a string of names and operators. Give a warm welcome to Dehne's Upper 90, the spanking new tenant in an 122-year-old saloon built by the Schlitz Brewing Co. to sell its products back in the days when Milwaukee's breweries operated their own taverns.
