In 1889, the brewery was officially renamed Pabst Brewing Company and began affixing blue ribbons on bottles of Best Select beer. By 1899, Best Select became Pabst Blue Ribbon, and Pabst’s dream of owning the world’s largest brewery had come true.
Fast forward to 2006, and Joseph A. Zilber, a Milwaukee real-estate developer and local philanthropist, purchased the property with a vision of transforming the iconic landmark into a beautifully sustainable neighborhood known simply as The Brewery. Completed in April 2013, The Brewhouse Inn & Suites is quickly becoming known for being a high-end Milwaukee hotel with first-rate service, sustainable design, historical bonafides, and one-of-a-kind experiences.
At The Brewhouse Inn & Suites, guests and visitors are greeted by soaring beam ceilings, a fusion of mixed metals and reclaimed wood, and a stained-glass window depicting King Gambrinus, the joyful folk hero of beer culture. Venture deeper, and guests will discover remnants of the Pabst Brewery’s lustrous past, including restored copper brew kettles and rooms that combine industrial sleek with the aesthetic opulence of Victorian design.
One of the newest hotels in Milwaukee, the Brewhouse Inn & Suites features 90 luxuriously furnished suites, stunning views of an ever-expanding skyline, and one-of-a-kind spaces in which locals and visitors alike can immerse themselves in a pocket of a re-surging city's history.
