Melthouse Bistro Pints and Bites

Cheese and beer are synonymous with Wisconsin and Milwaukee. We wanted to create a unique, fun and tasty dinner menu that showcases the best Wisconsin cheese and Wisconsin’s growing roster of artisan craft beers

Just in time for National Grilled Cheese Month in April, Melthouse Bistro launches Pints and Bites™, an innovative three course prix fixe dinner menu showcasing two pillars of the Wisconsin culinary scene: Wisconsin cheese and Wisconsin craft beers.

If you're someone who thinks that an ooey-gooey gourmet grilled cheese sandwich is the perfect accompaniment to Wisconsin craft beer, than you will not be disappointed by these delectable pairings. The inaugural Pints and Bites prix fixe dinner menu for four starts with a small plate of savory Wisconsin cheese curds to share, then moves on to four different quarter gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches per person paired with a flight of four Ale Asylum craft beers to sip and enjoy. Dinner concludes with each guest getting a beer float made with Tyranena™ Imperial Oatmeal Coffee Porter and Purple Door™ super-premium vanilla ice cream, and served with made-from-scratch chocolate cream cheese brownie bites. A Pints and Bites dinner starts at $24.00 per person for a group of four, $22.00 per person for a party of eight, and $20.00 per person for a table of twelve. Every six to eight weeks new gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches will be offered on the menu and paired with a featured Wisconsin craft brewery.

“Cheese and beer are synonymous with Wisconsin and Milwaukee. We wanted to create a unique, fun and tasty dinner menu that showcases the best Wisconsin cheese and Wisconsin’s growing roster of artisan craft beers” explains Co-Owner Susan Davis. “The Ale Asylum collection of craft beers take the gourmet grilled cheese and craft beer experience to the next level.”

“We’re excited to be part of the inaugural launch of Pints and Bites. Melthouse Bistro is a top notch Milwaukee bistro for Wisconsin cheese and craft beer aficionados looking for something different than your typical bar and grill” says Ale Asylum Director of Promotions, Hathaway Dilba, “Melthouse Bistro’s bold flavor combinations and impeccable service has made the restaurant a household name across Southeastern Wisconsin and many diners will jump at the chance to try this unique dinner menu.”

Melthouse Bistro and Ale Asylum leadership teams worked together to create the grilled cheese and craft beer pairings. For example, the Ale Asylum Ambergeddon, a West Coast style amber that is aggressively hopped, pairs well with The Recco Supreme™ gourmet grilled cheese; garlic- infused Focaccia bread with Wisconsin Blue & Fontina cheese, smothered in a chipotle raspberry sauce.

The menu is also available for groups of eight or twelve. Those interested in booking a Pints and Bites private event for a group of 16 or more, please contact the restaurant directly or email
