Kristin Graves' Spotify playlist & inspiration
We chose classic songs you'll hear at any Packer game or party with the addition of some of our favorites. Each of our bartenders has an eclectic taste in music, so you'll always hear a variety of playlists at our bar (when the customer fueled jukebox isn't taking over). Our soft spot is for old country, punk, and 60's and 70's rock.

What do you love about your city?
To follow the theme of cheese, I’ll give a cheesy answer: the people. Milwaukee is filled with creatives who have unique ideas on bringing the community together. During any month there are festivals to attend with emphasis on supporting local business. The flea markets we host at our bar, for example, are run by Ashley Smith (owner of a local thrift shop). She organizes numerous seasonal craft events throughout the city for local artists to sell their products. And the community SHOWS UP. Without fail, her events are always huge – filled with drinking, shopping, and connecting with friends.
It’s no secret we’re the cheese state and home to ridiculous Bloody Mary garnishes. When the idea came to us of a deep fried Cheese curd Tot garnish, it was a no brainer. It was time to take our Bloody Mary game to the next level. They come out hot off the truck for every Packer game and paired with the subtle spice and savoriness of the bloody - it’s a match made in heaven.
