Captain Pabst Pilot House Saved our Wedding
We originally had a destination wedding planned for March 2020. After having to postpone it 3 times due to the pandemic, and then finally making the decision to cancel our destination wedding a week out, the Captain Pabst Pilot House literally saved our wedding!!! As a direct result of their amazing customer service and willingness to work with us, we were able to plan and execute the most perfect wedding in only 7 days and were married on July 17, 2020! We cannot say enough positive things about our experience working with Aly and the Captain Pabst Pilot House. We received excellent timely communication, flexibility based on our needs, and the peace of mind that they were taking serious precautions to ensure the safety of us and our guests. Our guests are still talking about what an awesome time they had and how amazing and unique the venue was. It was a true "Milwaukee" experience from start to finish! The food was absolutely delicious, and the service from the bartenders and staff was top notch. This venue is a true Milwaukee gem!Sent on 08/10/2020
