The Best Sports Bars in Milwaukee

Milwaukee sports fans are loyal and enthusiastic (just head to the Deer District for all the proof you'll need), even when we've been tapped to pay for new arenas and stadiums. When we can't hop on a shuttle to Miller Park or score an affordable ticket to a Bucks game, we head to sports bars to commune with our people while chowing down on wings and guzzling beer.

4th Base is kind of a crazy, make-your-own-adventure steakhouse sports bar. There are no menus -- they just make you whatever you want to eat. The Bloody Mary, however, is constant...
