Next On Tap…

Next On Tap… returns for a third season, and we’re happy to welcome four new breweries this year. A free beer tasting is included with the ticket purchase for the second Saturday of each production. A representative from the brewery is on hand to sample three to four of their beers, ranging from their tried and true favorites to new releases. In addition, each production will have a featured beer on sale at our bar from that month’s participating brewery. Check out the breweries we’re partnering with below. Stay tuned to social media and email for additional details!

Third Space Brewing

Saturday, October 5, 2019 • 7pm

Third Space Brewing is a production brewery, tap room and beer garden that opened in Milwaukee’s historic Menomonee River Valley in September 2016. Their name comes from the concept that people need a “third space” in their lives after home and work. According to Ray Oldenburg, who initially coined the term, a third space is “a public place where people can gather, put aside concerns of home and work and hang out simply for the pleasures of good company and lively conversation.”

Melms Brewing Company

Melms Brewing Company is the rebirth of one of Milwaukee’s original brewing powerhouses, transformed into a small craft brewery with a taproom in Hartland. Founded in 1854, the original brewery was on Virginia Street in Walker’s Point. By 1860, Melms had become the largest brewery in Milwaukee and C.T. Melms is widely considered to be the first Milwaukee “beer baron.” It was sold to Pabst in 1869, but after a four year fundraising campaign, Melms reopened in March 2018.

Black Husky Brewing

Production: A SMALL FIRE
Date: Saturday, February 8, 2020 • 7pm

Black Husky Brewing began in 2010 in a small log cabin in the woods of Pembine, WI. Inspired by the dogs in their son’s sled dog kennel, co-founders Tim and Toni Eichinger named the brewery after their beloved husky, Howler. Each of their beers’ names is associated with the dogs from the kennel.
