Beer Baron: From Amherst to Milwaukee, Central Waters’ Cream City play has a Madison twist
The opening of Central Waters Brewing’s Milwaukee taproom and brewery earlier this month is a pretty big deal in Wisconsin beer, and there are some high-profile contributions to the project from Madison, too.

First, though: Holy smokes, this is a cool space. It’s the former home of Pabst Milwaukee, which, I should probably clarify, opened in 2017, not, you know, 1844. That was when Pabst Brewing Co. got started in Milwaukee, and the 2017 opening of a little 10-barrel brewery on the almost entirely redeveloped former Pabst campus near downtown was a nice bit of symbolism and overdue good faith that unfortunately didn’t last....
