Milwaukee has been exploding with new venues, but The Venue at Milwaukee Brewing Company stands out for couples who want a blank slate venue with yummy food and delicious beer — connected to one of Milwaukee’s hottest breweries!
The Venue at Milwaukee Brewing Company’s rooftop space is great for wedding ceremonies and we love the killer views of downtown. In addition, the floor to ceiling glass windows overlooking downtown and MKE Brewing Co. operations, along with its location adjacent to the Bucks Arena District (a.k.a. Deer District) will ensure you and your guests will have a great time before, during and after your wedding.

Bartenders are provided by The Venue at Milwaukee Brewing Company and they have ample bar packages for you to choose from, including custom craft cocktails like these ones from Central Standard Craft Distillery.
Of course we recommend serving Milwaukee Brewing Co. beer — not only because your wedding is happening while overlooking the brewery, but because their beer is delicious, is oh so Milwaukee, and your guests will love it.
You can either have your ceremony inside of The Venue at Milwaukee Brewing Company or the rooftop deck which works for 150 – 200 people.
