The proposal selected last summer by the City of Milwaukee for the redevelopment of the former Schlitz tied house - long known as Humboldt Gardens, Mint Lounge and Zak's - at 2249 N. Humboldt Ave. is (potentially) moving forward, albeit slowly.

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.
