The Crafter Space was born in 2014 with the mission of creating a better environment for craft beer and craft brewers to thrive in Milwaukee, WI. Our mission was motivated by the unique heritage Milwaukee has as the cradle of craft beer in the U.S. The birthplace of Miller, Pabst, Blatz, Schlitz, to name a few, Milwaukee was an early hot bed of brewing. The new wave of craft breweries has surged around Milwaukee and catapulted cities like San Diego, Denver, Portland, Seattle, Minneapolis, Asheville, and others ahead. Through monthly programming focused on community creation and education, rather than happy hours and bottle releases, we endeavor to create a movement succeeded in getting over 200+ event guests and bringing the Beer Bloggers Conference to Milwaukee in 2017.
