Former Pabst Blue Ribbon Brewery Turned ‘Brewhouse Inn’

Posted 440 days ago by

Pabst Blue Ribbon is a classic beer, and while the former brewery compound in Milwaukee is closed down (and has been, for quite some time), it is now proudly titled “Brewhouse Inn & Suites.” It’s a collection of 90 higher end suites, rooms and extended stay suites (studio, one and two bedrooms) for visitors to the midwest city. In conjunction with the rooms, there is a “Blue Ribbon Pub” on the first floor that ties in with the brewsky themed building.

The entire project features found and reused objects– including a gorgeous stained glass window with King Gambrinus front and center, repurposed wood as headboards and posts, and so many more details throughout. The copper kettles were even restored to a metallic glow, and are a focal point of the lower levels. Even beyond the 5 story hotel’s details is the well appointed shuttle bus, painted in the PBR colors for those traveling to and from sporting events, etc.
