Yelp’s (first-ever) Brew City Bash!

The rumors are true. You may have been hearing them, but now? It's official. Yelp Milwaukee's arrived in a big way…

On Friday, March 9, over 350 yelpers came together to celebrate Yelp's first year in Milwaukee at our first-ever Brew City Bash. This absolutely amazing event was held in the historic Pritzlaff building's gorgeous 333 space, and with floor to ceiling windows, cream city brick, and fabulous architecture, the space was a perfect fit for our celebration of all things MKE.


What made this night so special? (Where to even begin?)

Locally-crafted spirits and beers from Great Lakes Distillery and Lakefront Brewery, tea & coffee bars from Rishi Tea and Anodyne Coffee, and incredible bites from Jake's Deli, Nessun Dorma, Antigua, Blue's Egg + Maxie's Southern Comfort, Purple Door Ice Cream, and Bolzano Meats

And fun! We love funSPiN Milwaukee rocked ping pong while American Cornhole taught us the finer points of that bags game we all know and love. Our friends from the Establishment were there, as were the Brewcity Bruisers on skates, the House of Harley Davidson, Do414, and Fine Line Magazine…


The sweet sounding stylings of WMSE's Wax Addicts kept things rocking, as did photobooths from ShutterboxDream Life Photography, and Joyce Paisley Photography. So so awesome!

A huge thank you to Luke Rosynek, Dan Kelly, and Li Wang for candid photos and an amazing video that'll be making the rounds super soon. Also: we couldn't have done it without Yelp superstars Andrea R, Gabi M, and Annie D. (You ladies are the best!)


The thing about us here in Milwaukee is that we love our city. So why not celebrate the amazing businesses, organizations, and people that make MKE so fantastic? Yelp's a huge part of that, too, because we want to celebrate what's new and what's old and storied by positive word-of-mouth; we want everyone to know what makes us so special and so unique here in the four-one-four!

I'm so proud to be part of something so great here in Brew City. 

Until next time, SYOY!
