Press Release - Milwaukee Expansion

I don't know if this has been covered here. I tried a search and found nothing- doesn't mean I didn't miss it. Anyway, this looks pretty cool. Does anyone have any knowledge of where the location is going to be?

Sorry, it looks like it was updated...
"The 11,000-square foot space, located at 1306 S 108th Street"

Later it still says...
"The exact address of the Milwaukee store has yet to be announced".

Agreed, awesome.

Though I have to say we are already blessed with several homebrew stores in the area. I'm curious what kind of impact this will have on them. By my count, there's 7 others within 45-60 minute drive.


========================
Milwaukee Area Home Brew Shops
========================
Home Brewing Depot - West Allis
The Purple Foot - West Allis (I think)
Market Basket - Brookfield
Brew n Grow - Brookfield
Frugal HomeBrewer - Waukesha

And a bit further...
Bitter Creek Homebrew - Slinger
Cedarburg Homebrew and Wine - Cedarburg

I'm one of the new employees of this location, I'm so excited! It's going to be great! I saw the inside briefly during my interview, and it's a great amount of space.

Lucky dog! That'd be a great place to work.

My buddy (who lives in Milwaukee), was jealous that I go right by NB in St. Paul on my way home from work....now he's getting what sounds like a nicer store than the original NB!! (Plus he lives about 5 minutes south of Greenfield on Hwy. 100....so nice and close)

Yeah, I'm really excited about it. The only problem now is that I need a place to live! My wife and I are living in the Chicago burbs now, but if any Milwaukee residents have advice, it'd be much appreciated! We like the look and prices of River West, but have heard about the shootings too. Washington Heights seems neat too?

I live in riverwest and it is a great community. Those two shootings this summer were isolated incidents, sadly one of which took the life of an aquaintance. I can say though that ever since I moved to this side of town I have had nothing but great neighbors and good times. Also a plus is that there are a lot of homebrewers in this area I know of 3 within walking distance from my place. Also one of the guys who home brews here gives anyone who wants hops rhizomes just so that they will grow and all will have more hops, but he also hosts the community graden so he is kinda giving like that. Just don't let those incidents influence your decision.

+1 on Riverwest being my favorite place int he city. Best people, most open minded, best community, best bars/venues, tons of live music, no up tight d-bags.

Grand opening announced!
