New Brewery Opens in Riverwest

Milwaukee has certainly seen its share of kegs tapped this summer with all the traveling beers gardens in the county.

On Wednesday, a new brewery joined the pack.

Black Husky is located on Locust Street in the Riverwest Neighborhood at 909 East Locust Street.

Mayor Tom Barrett and Alderman Nik Kovac were also there to make sure the beer was just right. It's their civic duty, right?

"Black Husky" Brewing has converted an old auto repair shop and wouldn't you rather go for a beer instead of a tune up?

Black Husky Brewing's Toni and Tim Eichinger also took part in the ceremonial keg tapping.

Black Husky Brewing started its operation in the northeastern Wisconsin community of Pembine.  As the popularity of their products has grown, the Eichingers chose to relocate to Milwaukee.

The conversion from car shop to tap room is a notable addition to East Locust Street with its rebuilt façade and new beer garden.
