The neighborhood is bordered by North Avenue, Holton Avenue, the Milwaukee River, and Pleasant Street to the south, and Martin Luther King Drive to the west. It provides the perfect community for the Milwaukee bed and breakfast of Sanger House Gardens.
The name Brewers' Hill is derived from the high population of brewery workers and owners that once inhabited the area.
