“I know it’s not in Milwaukee, but since it was built by Schlitz Brewing in 1900, this building in Chicago’s Little Village has got a Brew City pedigree.
“And what a gem it is. Look at that gravity-defying turret! And it’s still got its Schlitz globe medallion!
“The multi-unit former tied house tavern has 12 rooms, including six bedrooms, and two baths and is currently for sale for $351,000. It’s unclear how much of the original saloon space survives.
“Schlitz Brewing built many beautiful tied house saloons – taverns built by breweries and leased to operators who sold that brewery’s beer exclusively (an arrangement outlawed with Prohibition) – at home in Milwaukee.
“Some examples include the East Side Tap, which you can see here; the dearly departed Southport Lanes; Schuba’s music club and tavern building; and this recently landmarked gem.
“Now, you (or we) can own one, too!” (Tanzilo, On Milwaukee Blog, 4/5/22)
