Bourbon Is Coming: Central Standard Craft Distillery—Milwaukee’s Next Big Thing | By Dave McGraw | Photos by Brian West

Seems to me, genius is cultivated when we least expect it. And it’s often over a 2 oz pour, isn’t it? Allow us to introduce to you Central Standard Craft Distillery, Milwaukee’s newest resident to the craft distilling scene. About 2 years ago, three friends were struck with a stroke of genius over a few glasses of America’s liquid lightning—bourbon. Of course.

Al Fresco Imbibing: 21 of Our Favorite Bar Patios
Blogs - Alcoholmanac Blog

Intro By Jennifer Briscoe

After an especially long and chilly winter, it is best take in all of the Vitamin D you can absorb via your favorite patio. Frankly, I cannot think of a better way to bust out of hibernation mode. Although our play time outside is limited, many local establishments counter by maximizing the space for your enjoyment in their outdoor spaces. Whether offering shade from the elements, views of the abundant fresh water lakes and rivers or unexpected refuge in the heart of the city,
we can all sit back and relax with good food, drink and friends at these wonderful places and spaces.

People have distinct personalities and patios do, too. If you prefer to unwind after a long, stressful day at the office, let the relaxed vibe of a waterfront patio ease your spirits and wash away your worries. Perhaps you long for the old world style of a European village and long for the gemütlichkeit of a vacation’s past Bier Garden. Looking instead to heat things up, even in the middle of summer? Dance the night away along with live music and a vibrant night scene
in a city-centric outdoor space.  No matter what the situation or style, there is no better time to live and work in Milwaukee.

Let Alcoholmanac be your guide—make the most your outdoor time by enjoying your favorite beverage or Third Coast cuisine on some of the best patios Brew City has to offer. Take in all of the sunshine you can get, preferably with a cool drink in hand. Don’t forget the sunscreen!

Food Trucks: 16 Meals on Wheels
Blogs - Alcoholmanac Blog


We Milwaukeeans sure know how to take full advantage of even remotely nice weather. One of our favorite summer treats is hunting down food trucks, so we figured it’s time to feature some of our favorites in the city. We asked our group of regularly contributing writers to find out which trucks they’d recommend and rounded them all up here for you.

Celebrate our city’s many cultures through a tour of food during one of the many truck gatherings. There’s usually one on Tuesdays at Schlitz Park during regular lunch hours, for example. These trucks are such a great way to get a good snapshot of the diverse food that Milwaukee has to offer, which is especially fun if you’re hosting guests from out of town and are meeting for lunch.

Living in the digital age certainly has its perks, namely finding information quickly. Utilize your smartphone to help locate these sometimes elusive food trucks. Most have Twitter accounts that are updated daily with their whereabouts, so we’d start there.
