Milwaukee Ale House will close its doors in September after 25 years on Water Street

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Milwaukee Ale House announced on Monday that it will close its doors next month after 25 years on Water St.

In a Facebook post, the restaurant said the owner of the historic building has chose not to renew its lease with Milwaukee Ale House.

"We’ve spent the past 25(!) years with each other, celebrating your milestones, eating and drinking together, watching the sun set on the river from the patio. We have brewed many pints of fresh beer, trying over 400 different recipes. There could be nothing better, and we thought we had at least another 25 years to continue our traditions," Milwaukee Ale House said in a Facebook Post. 

The last day you can stop in the restaurant will be Sept. 11. They will be holding a celebratory good bye with deals and specials until they close in four weeks. 

According to their Facebook post, "In true Ale House fashion, though, we’ll be tapping kegs and frying curds until the very end. Please, come join us one more time over the next four weeks, and raise your glasses with us to toast the amazing memories we have here. We will have some special releases and some throwback pricing to send us off in style. Did you know that pints of our fresh brew were just $2.50 when we started out in 1997?"
