Free beer at Harp Pub Thursday evening to welcome new Paddle Tavern to Milwaukee River

There's a new way to get around downtown Milwaukee.

It's called the Paddle Tavern.

There are two of them.

Cream City Cruiser 1 and 2.

You can fit up to 14 people on board with trips up and down the Milwaukee River.

CBS 58's Michael Schlesinger was one of the first passengers to experience Milwaukee from a different view. 

"There's people who have lived in the city all their lives cannot even begin to imagine what it's like," said Captain Tim Larson. "I hear over and over that they're just surprised that our city is so beautiful from the water. Especially from the outer harbor. You can see our skyline is breathtaking."

There's a special grand opening Thursday night from 5 until 8 at the Harp off Juneau Avenue.

Free beer and complimentary 20 minute rides.
