As for food, as long as it is decent and not too pricey, any will do it. I will probably just get a burger and fries, nothing too fancy. Do you still recommend Rumpus Room first?
As far as downtown places, I'd still put it first. Their burger, although $13, is extremely good, plus it's 1/2 lb! Also, you get a pretty great selection of beers

Thanks for the clarification. I've always wondered how those guys went from supposedly a bunch of home brewers to distribution in grocery stores and restaurants so quickly. So they are a little more insidery than they let on.

That said I like what I've had of theirs.

I take back what I said about Ale House. I haven't been there in a long time.

Thanks for the suggestions, Greendale is already settled, the lease is signed. I'm only 10 miles south of Marquette where I will be working and don't mind driving a little bit to visit places. Coming from Minneapolis, living 2 miles from the new Northern Brewer, I'm glad that I will still have one within a reasonable drive. I'll have to check out some of the places yall suggested, thanks.

Sugar maple has a great selection of beerjust off of Lincoln and kk.Bennos in west allis on Greenfield has a crapload of good beers on tap. There is always the overpriced world of beers on Brady street. And Bennelux, hollander and Centraal, even trocadero is where you go for the Food AND beer.

ooooooo, yea I would have gone northside as well, mainly because of traffic - 94 south kinda blows after work. but I might be a bit biased, i'm well north of the city. i don't know anything about the greendale area, I think it's nice.
