With all the talk of Milwaukee closings and building-swaps, it’s nice to know that entirely new businesses are still popping up on a daily basis. Today, the Milwaukee Business Journal is reporting that Black Husky Brewing will open its Riverwest brewery and taproom Wednesday, August 3. The nano-brewery is originally from Pembine, Wisconsin, but has moved its entire operation to 909 E. Locust St.
According to the Business Journal, Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett and Ald. Nik Kovac will be on hand for a ceremonial keg tapping at 2:30 p.m. Husband and wife owners Tim and Toni Eichinger will include eight different Black Husky beers in their taproom, and will welcome patrons to order food from nearby restaurants. (Black Husky Brewing is not licensed to serve food.)
Interestingly, the Business Journal quotes Toni Eichinger as saying “People like to complain about the government or city impeding their progress. That has not been our experience with the city at all. The people we have worked with have been kind, courteous, eager and willing to assist throughout the process. We can’t thank them enough,” which is a bit different from another upstart brewer we know. (Find out more about Black Husky Brewing from OnMilwaukee here.)
