Milwaukee Brewing Company was founded on principles of crafting and creating beers using the best local ingredients and suppliers in a sustainable, creative, and innovative environment. Milwaukee Brewing Company started as Milwaukee Ale House, a brewpub with a custom 15bbl brewery. Founder Jim McCabe applied engineering experience and home brewing momentum to design a very functional and robust brewery, built by W.M. Sprinkman in Franksville Wisconsin. The first beer was produced in October 1997 at a time when Milwaukee was still a Lager town.

Over a decade of producing a rotation of year-round Ales and over 300 unique seasonal flavors at the Ale House established a fan base of craft drinkers that understood the effort.  Adding to the momentum is a new generation of craft beer lovers that are very knowledgeable and just as passionate as the Milwaukee Brewing Company brewery scoundrels.

Voted as Milwaukee’s Best Craft Brewery of 2019, Milwaukee Brewing Company (MKE) has come a long way since opening in 1997. By staying true to its foundational roots, MKE has created a sustainable, creative, and innovative brewing environment unlike any other. Paired with the opening of MKE 9th St., a destination brewery and taproom located just outside the Deer District, the brewery is paving the way to become a household name throughout the Midwest.

MKE 9th St. is a culmination of 5 years of effort in design and innovation from the MKE team. Featuring a state-of-the-art brew system, the brewery combines the latest technology and unique capabilities for creative expression in adult beverages. Technology at the brewery is being used for energy efficiency, consistency in the brewing process, safety and a waterfall of data to continuously improve quality.

The growing demand for the Milwaukee Brewing Company beers matched the nationwide movement towards Craft made innovation. In November 2007 Milwaukee Brewing Company kegged the first brew at the 2nd Street Brewery, a 50bbl packaging facility. In keeping with the core values of working in a sustainable, creative, and innovative environment, the 2nd Street Brewery applies current-day technology with vintage equipment to achieve creative flexibility and energy efficiency.

The MKE 9th St. Taproom features over 30 draft lines, constantly rotating through Milwaukee Brewing’s award-winning beers. Guests can grab a seat at the bar or enjoy the views from our second-floor mezzanine overlooking our state-of-the-art brewing equipment.
