New Milwaukee-area brewery Lion’s Tail opens Friday in Wauwatosa

A taste of Neenah beer will soon be available in Wauwatosa, when Lion’s Tail Brewing opens its second location on Friday.

The brewery’s Milwaukee-area home is the former Wisconsin Garden and Pet Supply store at 8520 W. North Ave. The second location comes after seven years of operation at the Neenah location, 116 S. Commercial St.

The Wauwatosa space was built to combine two separate buildings, one the former gardening center and the other the pet store, with a new indoor space.

The former gardening center is still recognizable as most of it was utilized to create a beer garden for more than 100 customers at a time.

“We really made this an integrated space,” said Nick Leak, vice president of operations and marketing for Lion’s Tail. “The gardening center made for a perfect space where people can sit outside, and come right into our bar.”
