“It was as bad as you could imagine,” said Tim Pauly.
Pauly and Dan McElwee, owners of Broken Bat Brewing, 231 E. Buffalo St., put their brewery on the disabled list on May 15 after steam and water damaged everything in the Historic Third Ward business except the stainless steel brewing equipment.
Broken Bat will come back into the rotation at noon on Friday, in time for Drink Brew City Week, a celebration of Milwaukee’s craft breweries organized and sponsored by the Milwaukee Craft Brewery League. Broken Bat will open with new beers — a coconut porter, a Scotch ale and a barleywine — and the familiar Straight Ahead Chedd apricot pale ale and Ugly Finer Northeast-style IPA.
