Meet the Fast Casual Reinventing Beers and Brats

October 21, 2016

The people of Milwaukee are no strangers to hot dogs and bratwursts, but what about a jalapeño Cheddar brat topped with habanero beer mustard and hot kraut?

It’s on the menu at Vanguard, which restaurateur Jim McCann and former bar manager Chris Schulist opened two years ago along with Chef Shay Linkus. Located in the up-and-coming neighborhood of Bay View, the fast casual is a part of the local nightlife scene while also capturing daytime business with its hearty food, full bar, and signature cocktails.
