We are in the middle of our 2011 Fall Fund Drive, and 88Nine RadioMilwaukee will be five years old this coming February 2012, and the reason why we been on the air this long is because of you - the listener. 88Nine RadioMilwaukee is non-profit, public radio station. Without your continue support, we would be no longer on the air.
Only two times a year, we come to you to help support what we do by becoming a contributing member. Your contribution to 88Nine RadioMilwaukee is tax-deductible. This year we have a lot of ways to thank you. Today (10/5/11), if you donate $60 or more we will give $10 Gift card from our friends at the Milwaukee Ale House. To get this gift card, you must call 414-934-GIVE to make a donation.
The Milwaukee Ale House occupies the first several floors of the Saddlery building which stands between Water Street and the Milwaukee River. The Ale House Bar is one of Milwaukee’s best night spots. It’s a great spot to socialize and enjoy live music. Along with our house brewed selection of ales and lagers, we offer many national and international premium beers and wines. Live music is a big part of the experience and top performers are scheduled several nights a week.
Milwaukee Brewing Co. has been the house beer at the Ale House since the begining. Their first brewery still operates in the front of our pub. They have a second brewery (that doubles as a packaging facility) on 2nd street in Walker’s Point.
Tours of Milwaukee Brewing Company are located at 613 S. 2nd Street (the building is now orange). Public tours are on Fridays at 5 and 6, and Saturday at 3, 4, and 5. We recommend getting there about a half hour before a tour starts
