Founded by Local home brewers on October 17, 1997, the Milwaukee Ale House serves up fresh music, live beer and great food to the good people of Wisconsin and travelers from all over the world. Located in a brick and timber warehouse building downtown in the Historic Third Ward, we offer indoor and outdoor dining, six or more hand crafted beers, lunch and dinner everyday with late night food on the weekends.
Our seating on the Milwaukee River overlooks downtown and our 6 public boat slips create an atmosphere that offers our diners a unique connection to the roots of the city that made beer famous! Schooners used to dock in front of our building to get fitted with new sails before heading back out to Lake Michigan.
“…this pub is worthy of the awards received – and I would absolutely go back to the Milwaukee Ale House on a weekend for some drinks and maybe on a Wednesday for trivia. (And, if I get enough beers in me, karaoke on Thursday.)”
“You can’t beat the view from the patio of the Milwaukee Ale House. It’s probably more known as a restaurant with a great patio but let’s go to the origin story: This is where Milwaukee Brewing started. Drink the beer. Watch the boats glide by.”
“…it’s been recognized as a staple of the neighborhood and consistently one of its popular spots – whether going for a beer, a bite or a battle of either sporting prowess on one of its TVs or of wits on one of its trivia sheets.”
“…the deck is particularly inviting, and its upper level, bathed in afternoon sunlight, is filled with diners at the four-top tables arrayed with a magnificent view of downtown and the river.”
