Lifestyles of the Chic and Tipsy: It’s a Beer Hotel, Basically


From the desk of the OverServed Style and Beauty editor:

I was cruising JetSetter the other day to check out hotel options for an upcoming wedding I will be attending in Milwaukee when I stumbled upon The Brewhouse Inn & Suites. Looks like this hip boutique hotel has been in operation since April of last year… OverServed truly reports on breaking, up-to-the-minute beer and related news in South Central and Eastern Wisconsin.

Per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the hotel features six brewing kettles, a restored stained glass window featuring King Gambrinus, stone and brick arched doorways in the lobby, a spiral staircase, guest rooms with exposed brick, and furniture created with the original brew house’s old floor joists.

I’ve been to Milwaukee and the old Pabst brewery (which shuttered in 1996) a handful of times and I’m excited to see revitalization in the area start to take off. Apparently, this is the first step in a 20-acre redevelopment of the entire Pabst Brewery. Read about the senior apartment portion here! Or don’t. Your choice. This is actually where you can get the scoop on what’s going down.

My favorite part about the hotel is the Pabst Beer Baron Package including:

  • One Night in a Luxurious Baron Terrace Suite
  • Chilled Six Pack of PBR on Arrival
  • Two Tickets to the Pabst Mansion
  • Valet Parking

Live like one of Milwaukee’s original beer barons. Take in the beautiful city skyline from your room’s own private terrace while you enjoy the beer which was brewed for more than 100 years in the building you’re now staying in. After a restful night in the sumptuous suite, enjoy a complimentary breakfast, and then visit the home of Frederick Pabst, the namesake of the Pabst Brewery, and the builder of the building the Brewhouse now resides in.

You had me at complimentary breakfast.
