    best place pabst milwaukee milwaukee beer society coffee beersOn Wednesday, May 3rd, Milwaukee Beer Society will be hosting a glorious night of uppers and downers as we taste our way through the delicious combination of coffee and beer. Many of these beers are darker beers, in which the roastiness of the coffee adds to the roasted malt flavors and/or compliments the sweetness of caramel malts.

     

    However, there are also a few styles in which coffee flavor is infused with lighter beers, such as pale ales or cream ales, for a unique and interesting flavor profile. Join us to try a good mix of both and find a new favorite.
