A hip getaway that’s rich with unique details -- The Brewhouse Inn & Suites is at once a celebration of the area’s impressive history and a bold statement on its sustainable future. (The hotel site was formerly the iconic Pabst Blue Ribbon brewery, built in 1882.) This innovative hotel combines first-rate service, sustainable design, historical bonafides, and one-of-a-kind experiences -- for a stay that’s distinctly Milwaukee.
A spectacular stained glass depiction of King Gambrinus -- the joyful folk hero of beer culture -- sits atop the five-story central atrium, welcoming you to his domain. Step inside and admire the high ceilings, exposed brick and ductwork, and six massive copper brew kettles. Soak in the abundant natural light, relaxing loft feel, and inspiring fusion of mixed metals and reclaimed wood. Modern architecture meets antique and repurposed furniture, with subtle homages to Brew City and the Industrial Revolution throughout.
Sustainable design, plus history and luxury
While industrial architecture, antique and repurposed furniture, and subtle homages to Brew City set the suites and guestrooms apart, modern conveniences like full kitchens, oversized showers, and complimentary Wi-Fi are what make The Brewhouse Inn & Suites a destination. The future of Milwaukee’s past runs like an electrical current throughout the property. The result? You’ll experience a stay that’s both informative yet inspirational.
At Jackson’s, the on-site restaurant, you can enjoy pub standards, hearty helpings, and of course delicious beer. Continental breakfast is included, so fuel up before your day begins with ease and convenience. If you’re feeling more adventurous, the Brewhouse is quite accessible to the ever-expanding array of appealing local businesses in downtown Milwaukee -- which is just a quick car or cab ride away. Brewhouse staff will happily furnish you with a list of recommended nearby breweries and distilleries offering factory tours, tasting rooms, and other classic Brew City experiences.
From the many relaxing common areas of the Brewhouse, you’ll find gorgeous views of historic buildings and churches, towering modern skyscrapers, and glittering Milwaukee attractions. A variety of interesting places are within walking distance, making for an appealing excursion. Soak in the many “green” touches throughout the property and the surrounding area. The Brewery has achieved platinum LEED certification and is on track to be one of urban America’s premier sustainable neighborhoods. It’s truly the future of the past.
