Milwaukee, WI: Point Burger Bar

We recently visited Point Burger Bar in Milwaukee, Wisconsin for Happy Hour.

Point Burger Bar combines top-notch burgers along with beer from Steven’s Point Brewery (hence the name).

The restaurant is headed up by local restaurateur Brian Ward, owner of Ward’s House of Prime and was inspired by burger bars in Las Vegas.

A licensing agreement with Stevens Point Brewery, a Wisconsin brewery with a history that dates back to 1857, lends both their name and their beer to the fast casual dining spot.

The bar features 30 taps, 25 of which are Point products, along with over 60 bottled brews and a full selection of spirits; it also has a great Happy Hour.

On a separate occasion we dined here for lunch and built our own burgers, but the next time we knew we had to try out the drinks, so we came for the Happy Hour.

Although the bloodies weren’t on the special, you know we just had to test drive ’em anyway. For you, of course.

Mix: Sacramento

Chaser: Yes

Fixin’s: Bacon, Olive, Cheese, Pickle

Price: $11

While Point Burger Bar gets “points” for using our favorite mix, the chaser, cheese and bacon, it gets docked for the hefty price tag, in our opinion. We knew the bloodies weren’t on the Happy Hour special, but we didn’t expect to pay $11 a pop. That’s a problem when they’re so good you order two and get saddled with a $22 bill when you didn’t even eat real food!

We’d suggest knocking the price back to a more reasonable $7 or $8, which seems more on par with similar bloodies in the marketplace. Or, hey, you’re a Burger Bar. We’d gladly pay the $11 if you slapped on a slider or two, like Milwaukee Burger Co., AJ Bombers or Sobleman’s before you.
