Us Bruisers are over the moon to be a part of something so special and uniquely MKE. We hope that you can come celebrate with us at our semi-final bout on 4/14 at the US Cellular Arena, and then, hang with us at the official after-party at Turner Hall. Viva Brew City!


It’s easy to go to the clichés, isn’t it? Beer, brats, and cheese. Laverne and Shirley. The Violent Femmes. Love ‘em or hate ‘em, these are things that have come to define a great conception of Milwaukee’s civic identity.
And we’re not complaining about beer. …or cheese. (Who would?) But there is most certainly more to Brew City than those clichés; it’s evident with every new organization that pops up and does something innovative, and with every new venture undertaken by an ambitious group of Milwaukeeans. Milwaukee is evolving and growing in a pretty serious way on all sorts of levels.

Enter: Milwaukee Day. Cleverly situated on April 14 of each year — 4/14 — this city-wide celebration of all things Brew City speaks to more than just those easy ideas about what makes Milwaukee Milwaukee. With shows, parties, and events happening all over the city, Saturday’s poised to be a pretty major milestone in our city’s progression and conception of self on the whole.

And this year? The Brewcity Bruisers’ semi-final bout is a big part of the whole shebang.
It makes sense, really. In a lot of ways, the Bruisers are truly a major part of this “new” Milwaukee that’s about more than what’s easy. Our DIY league began in 2005, and since then, has grown and changed in amazing ways. We’ve seen a sport evolve internationally and we have evolved in step right alongside. Our bouts, which began seeing just 300 fans have grown to see well over 3,000 each and every time. We work with charities and amazing community entities, and our members and volunteers are passionate Milwaukeeans who care about their community.

Us Bruisers are over the moon to be a part of something so special and uniquely MKE. We hope that you can come celebrate with us at our semi-final bout on 4/14 at the US Cellular Arena, and then, hang with us at the official after-party at Turner Hall.
Viva Brew City!
