The return of Pabst

Pabst Brewing Co. will return to where it began, with plans to open a small brewery, tasting room, restaurant and bar at the former Pabst Brewery complex in downtown Milwaukee. Blue Ribbon Management LLC will redevelop the former First German Methodist Church building, located at the southeast corner of West Juneau Avenue and North 11th Street, for Pabst Brewing Co. After Pabst closed its Milwaukee operation in 1996, the brewery remained vacant until Zilber Ltd. founder Joseph Zilber acquired it in 2006 and began a redevelopment project to transform the former brewery into a mixed-use neighborhood. Several of the buildings in the complex have been sold to other developers.
