Overview
More
Brenner Brewing was founded in 2014 by diplomaed Master Brewer, Mike Brenner, as a way to combine his love of brewing beer with his lifelong passion for the arts. At Brenner you'll find something for everybody with a broad range of beer styles from Pilsners to IPAs to Sours to Rauchbiers to Stouts. Plan extra time to relax on the brewery's outdoor patio and visit the their two art galleries. Brewery tours are almost always given by brewery owner and founder, Mike Brenner. His very candid, unique tour is the one in Milwaukee not to be missed.

Been to plenty of craft breweries in and around the city center, I'd categorize Brenner's as average. One of the smaller taprooms my wife and I visited. That's not a bad thing but nothing really sticks out here as memorable. The beer was average with...More

Popped in for a taste of their taps on a quiet Sunday. Tried a sour (quite good) and a pale ale in taster sizes. Will have to come back when I have more time, but worth a visit.

We visited on a Saturday in early afternoon. They had a really good beer selection (Butterfly Farts was our favorite beer, and not just for the name) and plenty of seating, indoors and outdoors. They had bags and board games for people to play.

We stopped at Brenner before a Cubs vs Brewers game, took the tour, tasted the beer. Great time. Took about an hour. Mike the owner was quite funny. He supports the arts with a gallery attached and studio space. We will visit again.

We had an amazing tour with Paul this past weekend in which we visited 3 places. He filled the day with trivia, games, jokes and tons of knowledge about beer. It was a great end to our wedding weekend!

Fun and laid back tour. Friendly staff and atmosphere, definitely would go back for a beer and special events. The fact they support local artists and musicians makes it even better.
