Milwaukee Brewing Company seeks buyer

Milwaukee Brewing Company is seeking potential buyers for its downtown production brewery and alehouse, as well as intellectual property, a Friday news release indicated.

The brewery, founded in 1997, expanded from its beginning as a well-known alehouse on Milwaukee’s riverfront and, over a decade later, kegged the first brew at its 2nd Street location. Milwaukee Brewing Company's 9th Street main production facility now boasts a large-scale state-of-the-art microbrewery near Fiserv Forum.

The offering process is beginning this month and is focused on "finding a strategic buyer for the assets and operation."
