Grab a locally brewed pint and relax out on the patio of the Ale Asylum Riverhouse! Located directly on the waterfront, this updated tavern provides fantastic views of the Milwaukee riverfront. Sit outside on the patio on a warm summer night (or ask for a seat inside near the windows if its chillier) and take advantage of the spectacular river views.
