Brixies, in Brookfield, is one of those places where you can plunk down at the bar, look to the guy or gal sitting next to you, and start a conversation about beer.
They have 32 microbrews on tap, and are constantly swapping them out so you always have new brews to try. I once consumed almost half a Corney keg of Surly Darkness there, coming in from work almost every evening. Darkness is rated as one of the top beers in the world, and they always have something listed in the top 100 beers.
Besides Beer they have a Killer Kitchen. The food is awesome! Try one of their cheese burgers. It comes with 4 different cheeses including one layer that is batter fried! It is the best burger I have ever had! Brenna, the cook, is incredible!
Oh, and did I mention music? The have a great selection of local and traveling bands too.
I forgot, they have a facebook presence as well, where they broadcast the daily specials and more.
