About the restaurant
Fashioned after a German hops house with an urban twist and a better sense of humor, our Beer Hall boasts two wood burning fireplaces, display kitchen, full lunch and dinner menus and open garage doors to our Beer Garden during our two weeks of Wisconsin summer. It’s the perfect vibe when you want to pop in for a gourmet wood fired pizza, out-of-this-world burgers or other Hinterland favorites.

Great beer and upscale pub food. Bartenders and waitstaff are friendly and helpful. Loved the Goat Cheese dip and house made chips. Delicious. Hummus and Winter Harvest salad were also great. Many beer choices make this a don’t miss stop. Right across from Lambeau in Titletown area makes this a destination apot. The space is open and has large fireplaces at both ends.

Milwaukee
About the restaurant
Drawing upon the rich history of Milwaukee’s craftsmanship we present, Craft. The history of Milwaukee dates to the early 17th and 18th centuries when traders first began to travel through and eventually settle in what is now Milwaukee. Deep European roots brought craftsmen and skilled hands to the area and to this day an ethic of hard work and determination inhabits the spirit of the city. Early on the area was full of coopers, butchers, shoemakers, and farmers. Milwaukee’s beer history started in the 1840’s, driven by the presence of the frontier settlement near the Great Lakes. Immigrants, including Welsh and German settlers, yearned for the native beers of their homelands, so they embarked on making delicious craft beer with techniques from their native countries. Craft features a cuisine including locally sourced foods, hand crafted cocktails, and a vast selection of local beer.
