City Lights is the place to be!!! Super great beer with a family atmosphere. Robin and gang has really figured out the secret to a good time and great food. Love the outdoor patio and live music

We stopped in the afternoon for a couple beers. The beer is good with a decent variety. The building is really cool with a nice beer garden area. We didn't eat but heard good things about the food.

Awesome beer!! Great place to hang out! Too bad there was a fire a few weeks ago and they aren’t serving food now. But still a great place to hang out and have a great local brew!

Good beer and historic location, our tour guide not only talked about how their beer is made but history of beer and the history of the building we were in. Very interesting tour.

We were visiting Milwaukee and wanted to try a new brewery. A nice game day experience but it does get a little noisy inside. Beautifully redone building!! We ordered a flight and poutine. Overall a good experience.

Got a pretzel and a lot of beers. A little noisy but no big deal as we were just drinking. I'd go again. The orange wheat was pretty tasty.

Brewery is in an old historic building in MKE, staff is super friendly and the brews on tap are really good too!

We were here for beer and snacks. They had 9 of their beers on tap when we stopped by. My favorites were the Amber and the Irish Red. I am not a fan of either of those styles but City Lights does a good job....More

This was our first stop on a 2-day trip to Milwaukee. The building has a lot of history, and it has been wonderfully re-purposed into a great brewery and taproom. Staff was friendly, beer was fantastic, and the food was fresh and yummy. I would...More
