Franklin’s Only Self-Serve Beer Tavern

A One-Of-A-Kind Bar in a One-Of-A-Kind Place

When we envisioned The Rock Sports Complex, our goal was to provide the greater Milwaukee area with a recreational sports facility unlike anything else around. On a neglected swath of land in Franklin, we created a mecca for local downhill mountain bikers, baseball enthusiasts, skiers and snowboarders. Mission accomplished!

Of course, participation in such sports leads to loss of bodily fluids, a raging thirst and a pressing need to gather some place to replay the day’s events, so we also built Tap Works Beer and Wine Saloon. With a cozy, “up north” vibe, a unique self-serve tap bar for craft beers and wine, and the camaraderie of kindred souls, Tap Works is the place to be after an epic day of sport or a hard day at work.

Craft Beers, Fine Wines…Oh, and Mixed Drinks, Too

Bar in FranklinSure, Tap Works is all about craft beers and fine wines, but we know our Mixology, too. Do your tastes run to something a little more exotic? Let our bartenders astound you with their mixed drink wizardry. One sip and your taste buds will tingle with excitement while your mind registers only one thought: Ahh, deliciousness!
