The Brown Bottle is one of Milwaukee's best-kept secrets. It's a historic gem, which first opened in 1938 as a meeting place for visitors at the end of Schlitz Brewery tours. And, despite its regal, historic detail, it's not the least bit stuffy in terms of its menu. Nor is it the brewpub (serving junk burgers and cheap beer) you might expect.
After the Brown Bottle closed more than a decade ago, Libiamo operated in the space until 2012. The Brown Bottle reopened there in November.
But, it's also hidden away in Schlitz Park, making it a restaurant you're likely to pass casually on your way across town. Fortunately, it's also a restaurant and bar with plentiful parking that's absolutely worth the effort to locate.
So, if you haven't been there, here are eight great reasons why you should.View Original Article

The Brown Bottle
Technically a reopening of the original tavern that Schlitz opened in 1938, The Brown Bottle was recently closed for two years while undergoing a major rehaul. It’s still got a cave-like, old-world feel, but is now hipstered up with vintage light bulbs and sleek chairs that look like they came off the set of The Rocketeer. Most importantly, for a pub of its longevity, it’s inviting and serves hearty food like roasted skin-on chicken breast with caramelized Brussel sprouts, and plenty of Schlitz.View Original Article
The historic, circa 1938, Brown Bottle pub is back in business at the Schlitz Park office complex, the former Milwaukee home of the Schlitz Brewing Company. Operating the legendary pub, which had closed in 2004, are Menomonee Falls-based Davians and D&S Food Services Inc., a catering and vending operator, which also oversees the Schlitz Park Café in the RiverCenter and The Brew in the Stock House in Milwaukee.View Original Article
In a home project a few summers ago, a demolished concrete floor unearthed artifacts from several decades ago, including a grimy but unbroken brown beer bottle. The bottle was probably discarded by workers who laid the concrete. Since no remnants of the bottle’s label remained, the brewery’s identity remains a mystery, although through my eyes, the “Schlitz” logo curved smoothly across the mottled glass.View Original Article
The Brown Bottle first opened in 1938 at the then Schlitz Brewery; however, in 2004, the pub was forced to shut its doors. Plans to reopen the pub arose from recounted memories of the establishment’s storied history – engagements, first dates, fish fries, and, of course, beers shared at “The Bottle”. Aside from keeping those memories alive, the reopening would provide additional dining options to neighboring Schlitz Park tenants.View Original Article

The Brown Bottle restaurant, reopening Nov. 17, has a long history, and the operators of Schlitz Park plan on honoring that longevity as best they can. During renovations, keeping the historical feel of the space was of utmost importance, and the goal was for customers who frequented the bar in the 1940s be able to walk in today and feel right back at home. As much of the original woodwork as possible was kept and refinished, including the “The beer that made Milwaukee famous” Schlitz carving in what's now the chef's table across from the bar.View Original Article
