Visited August 10, 2012 (GTMW eve).
Arrived pretty late after hiking a long way through Madison and bar hopping along the way. Luckily the kitchen was still open. There was a band playing, the place was maybe 3/4 full, and the servers didnít seem to give a crap that we were there. After 15 minutes of waiting I started walking around trying to get the attention of a server but to no avail. Just as I suggested to our group that we leave someone finally showed up with a beer list.
We got a flight of Dark Horse beers, a pint of another beer, and ordered food. The food was decent, the beers were mostly weird but thatís alright, and the band was meh. Probably would not return here.

Small place with GREAT food and an above average tap list. There is always something good on tap. Small bands that play at night that can overpower the place, but a nice place to stop during the day.

Stopped by on a Sunday morning for a bite. The place is very quaint, with an old fashion saloon look. Tap selection was just O.K. nothing like Old Fashions but still a decent selection. Food was pretty good with lots of localy grown and butchered stuff. Service was good and ambience was pretty dead that day. Overall a pretty good quiet place to eat and have a beer.

Visited again this past weekend, got there right around lunch time and we had the place to ourselves. Tap selection wasnít great, but they did have two Southern Tier imperial beers on, food was actually pretty darn good, nice stop on the East side if youíre on your way to The Malt House and Dexters.

Good selection on tap and the food is great. The name is a little hard to remember.

Digging this newish spot. As I visit fairly often, itís nice to see a place that isnít stuck on the same couple tap beers. Everytime I come back the beer selection is different. Food is great and itís a nice little spot to kick back.

A nice neighborhood bar in East Madison. Taps rotate quite regularly. Avery/Russian River Collaboration not Litigation was on tap this week, with about ten other quality draft offerings. The food looks inexpensive and pretty good, but I havenít had any yet. Happy hour is a dollar off drafts from 3-5. Well worth a stop.

Visited at GTMW they were hosting I believe a DarkHorse guest tapping. The place was fairly well laid out for casual time, but didnít handle the number of people well, there was no where to stand, and it was difficult to get service. I didnít try the food, and only saw a couple of what they had on tap. I think this would be a great place to visit on a quieter evening.
