Documentation from Old World Third Street Historic Designation Study Report…
This former Schlitz Brewing Company saloon was designed by Milwaukee architect Charles Kirchoff in the Victorian Romanesque style to accommodate its long, narrow lot. Sited on the corner of State Street and a wide alley, it is three stories high with fully articulated elevations on the south and east. The exterior is clad with unpainted cream brick and trimmed with rock-faced limestone. The State Street facade is divided into three bays by colonettes of limestone. The gabled center bay is distinguished by a two-story oriel window finished in pressed metal. The alley facade is divided into four bays by the towering chimneystacks. Two oriel windows fill two of the bays. The ground floor has retained its period storefront with rock-faced limestone trim.
