bars in downtown Milwaukee that serve Yueng Ling beer?

Does anyone know of a bar that is close to the Pfister Hotel that serves this beer? Apparently, it is a midwest specialty and can't be found in many other parts of the country (Los Angeles in particular!)

  1. They only have distributors in the NE, and only as far west as Memphis. I'm in STL, and can't get it. Check their website, see if they have one in Wisconsin. I don't think so, but could be wrong.

    But when I'm in Memphis, I fill the truck. It's good stuff.

    1. It's actually just called Yuengling (one word), and is America's oldest brewery. It's from Pottsville, Pennsylvania, which I wouldn't really consider Midwestern, but hey, it's all in your point of view.

      I don't consider the beer itself to be anything too special, and since you're in Milwaukee (whose inhabitants drink more beer than those of any other American city), I'd go for something local. And I don't mean Pabst. Maybe Sprecher, or Lakefront, or even New Glarus (not from Milwaukee, but from elsewhere in Wisconsin).

        I like what I'm hearing... thanks! Where can I go, close to the hotel, to get my fill of the local microbrews?

          You can try Flannery's on Well St. The Wicked Hop in the Third ward (ie, just south of the expressway that cuts thru downtown (east west) The bar in the Pfister has Sprecher Amber on tap, I think. Finally, there are many bars/restaurants on Water St. A couple blocks west, and a couple north of the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts.

      2. I'm in Minneapolis and have been trying to find it with no luck. They don't distribute this far west!!! If you find it in Milwaukee, let me know- - my brother that lived in Philly for a couple years would be quite excited!!!
