Melms Brewing Company has a cool story behind it including a local connection to Milwaukee's first beer baron, Charles T. Melms, stretches back more than 150 years — and is being brought back into the limelight with the recent opening of a new taproom in Hartland.
In the 1860s, before the village was incorporated, Watertown Plank Road ran through the area and was used as a highway for farmers to get grains and hops to Milwaukee breweries. Likely some of that went to the biggest brewery in the city: Melms Brewing Co.
Today, Melms' great-great-great-great-nephew Bob Stack of Hartland has resurrected the brewery, nearly 150 years after it closed. The reborn brewery's first taproom is at 418 Merton Ave. "My mother's side always talked about a brewery that was in our name, but I didn't realize how big of a deal the brewery was until I came across an article a few years ago," Stack said. He has since made it his goal to restore the Melms name to the Milwaukee-area brewery scene.
