Nice large taproom in the Walker’s Point neighborhood near downtown Milwaukee.

Some history from the MobCraft website: In 2011, MobCraft founders Henry Schwartz and Andrew Gierczak dreamt up an idea for a crowdsourced brewery where the people decide what’s brewed. They quickly outgrew their space in Madison and made the move to Milwaukee in 2016. Each month they leverage the power of the crowd to generate ideas for unique craft beers. Beer fans across the US submit ideas ranging from a couple of flavors to tried and true homebrew recipes. The ideas go up for vote each month on their website. Votes are cast by placing a pre-order for the beer they would like to see brewed. The beer with the most pre-orders wins and is brewed, packaged and available for pickup at the brewery.

Hours are: Mon-Thu 3-10pm, Fri-Sat Noon-Midnight, Sun Noon-10pm. Brewery tours offered on weekends. Check the website for details. 20 beers on tap.

Oddball Kõlsch (4.00) – Clean and refreshing, according to style; slight hop bitterness in the finish.
Gier Bier Premium Lager (3.25) – Somewhat light on the grain bill; balance between hop bitterness and malty sweetness tilted too far towards bitterness.
Woo Brew Witbier (2.50) – Coriander character overpowered by the clove flavor; tastes more like a weizenbier than a witbier.
Vanilla Wafer Porter (3.00) – Big, roasted malt character; coffee notes evident; far too much vanilla, which dominates.

A few bar snacks, nine gourmet pizzas available, as well as a couple of desserts.
