The Indispensable Summer Drinking Guide
You'll never think of Milwaukee's summer bar scene the same way again

It was not easy to compile this definitive guide in the midst of 2014’s late, frigid spring. Our mouths watered with anticipation as we wrote about the best outdoor patios, rooftops and summer drinks, and our minds were transported as we waxed nostalgic about the city’s singular outdoor drinking opportunities. 

But, as always, we endured. And now that summer is upon us, we don’t have to wait any longer to palm a perspiring pint, or hear the holy clink of ice-filled libations on a sweltering summer day. Most importantly, neither do you.
