City Lights Brewing
2200 W. MT. Vernon Ave.
Milwaukee, WI 53233
In 1902, the Milwaukee Gas Light Company began construction of what was known as the West Side Water Works. The campus was originally designed to facilitate the coal gasification process which provided the coal gas used to light street lamps throughout the City of Milwaukee. The buildings were planned and designed more than a century ago by Alexander Eschweiler. During this time period, coal gasification was a common means of providing the gas for street lamps and homes in cities throughout the United States and Europe. In years that followed, Milwaukee became the epicenter of the beer industry. Barons such as Schlitz, Pabst, Best, Miller and Blatz defined the industry a century ago and made Milwaukee the beer capital of the world. Fast forward to today: the brewing operations of many of the Founding Fathers have disappeared locally. But make no mistake: their vision hasn't died. It has simply evolved - and the tradition continues as Milwaukee is now home to a legion of fine craft breweries. We are honored to now be partners with former brewing industry executives, local business and civic leaders, experienced entrepreneurs and successful investors - many with strong local ties and all of whom have personalities, character, and core values that match their professional accomplishments. With an incredible excitement, a humbling recognition of the historical significance of the West Side Water Works campus, an acute recognition of Milwaukee's legacy of brewing expertise and a proud sense of stewardship to respect the lore of yesterday and meet challenges of tomorrow, a craft brewery utilizing two of these iconic campus buildings was born - "The City Lights Brewing Company."Product Portfolio
