Next Door Brewing, 2439 Atwood Avenue

Next Door Brewing, 2439 Atwood Avenue

The East Side History Club’s roving reporters checked out the Next Door Brewing Company’s grand opening on Saturday, August 31. A happy crowd had already finished off the First Wort–the first batch to come off the newly installed brewing equipment–so we enjoyed pints of Wilbur (a cream ale named for Mr. Ed, the talking horse) and WPA, which stands for Wisconsin Pale Ale and is made with all Wisconsin ingredients. Delicious!

Next Door Brewing Company offers both a brewery and restaurant in the space once occupied by Appliance Service Company at 2439 Atwood Avenue. The remodeled brewpub offers a convivial environment, with tables big enough for parties of 6, 8 or more, and enough TVs to qualify as a sports bar (but their website promises that “We’ll show Badger and Packer games, a smattering of other sporting events, political debates and other important stories and events.  But, primarily, our T’s will be turned off and stored in closed cabinets.”) A substantial food menu offers locally-sourced fare, much of it made in house.
