Urban spelunking video: A close-up look at the iconic Pabst sign

Published Oct. 6, 2015

There are few more iconic images in Milwaukee than the Pabst sign that spans Juneau Avenue at 10th Street, connecting the old malt house on the southwest corner with the former brewhouse on the northwest corner. The sign is instantly recognizable and, especially now that Pabst is coming back to the site to brew beer in the former Forst Keller Restaurant and Pabst training center, it's been an extremely visible symbol of the city's brewing history. It's also a pretty cool place to visit.

Recently, the 19th century cream city brick former Pabst bottling plant -- currently in the pre-development phase of a residential project aimed at university students -- was enclosed by a cyclone fence, but work hasn't started just yet. That seems about to change, according to Zilber Property Group.

Gothic Milwaukee: 10 great buildings

Published June 9, 2013

One could expend a lot of verbiage on Gothic churches here, so to make sure this list of 10 great Gothic buildings in Milwaukee doesn't become a list of 10 Gothic churches in Milwaukee, I've limited myself to one house of worship. You may or may not agree about these buildings being the best examples of Gothic architecture in Milwaukee but you can't deny they are all landmarks and lovely ones at that.
