The workday can soar to a heightened level of efficiency and enjoyment—some might even say bliss—with a self-created and -imposed system of rewards throughout the day: a cup of coffee when you finish that report, or, in the case of Milwaukee’s work force, a pint at the Milwaukee Ale House when the clock strikes 5 p.m. The warm, wooded interior, an extensive menu, friendly servers and freshly brewed craft beers are a worthy reward for weekday endeavors. The entertainment lineup at the Ale House—think English pub quiz, swing dancing and live music—guarantees a fun-loving crowd most nights of the week. On Thursday nights the Ale House adds a little karaoke to its beer, spiking the odds that someone will think singing “I Will Always Love You” is a good idea.
