The old Pabst Brewery buildings in Milwaukee have been converted into a hotel. . .they have kept the giant copper fermentation tanks and built the hotel around them. . .the lobby and a hallway run underneath the tanks…and there are rooms to the sides and above these massive relics. . .this place is wonderful to stroll through–we highly recommend that you check it out some time and maybe even stay here.
Please be advised that there appear to be some staffing issues. . .room staff don’t clean the rooms in as timely manner as we might like…there is only one guy doing valet parking, baggage handling, and various other tasks–he seems exhausted every time we see him…his name is Steve…please give him a big tip if he helps you with ANYTHING…he is a good guy.
Another issue is the location: the building sits in a out-of-the-way part of town right next to a highway…there are lots of bars, snack areas, and outdoor patios for us to enjoy, but the highway traffic noise is not relaxing…so we are not enjoying this as much as we would like to.
The above notwithstanding, these buildings are full of history, nooks and crannies to explore, and some atmospheric settings for sipping a brew or three while paying homage to Captain Pabst and all that he built in the extremely fun town of Milwaukee. Check it all out online…you might like it so much that you feel the urge to book a night or two sleeping next to a giant copper beer fermentation tank…sounds like fun, and it is–mmm, aaaahh!
