The Milwaukee Ale House is great! I go to Trainfest every year and it happens to be coming around again next weekend (11/12-11/13). I like Trainfest for two reasons (other than the model trains, which is my other hobby):
1. It is the only model train show where they serve alcohol - Leine's on tap and in bottles!
2. I can go to the MHA afterwards - ale's what cures ya! I usually pick up some Louie's Demise to go.
I also love Sprecher. Their Oktoberfest, Amber, Maibock and Bavarian (dark) Lager are my favorites. I still have an empty bottle of their Oktoberfest that I kept because of the bottling date stamped on it - 09/11/01.
