One of the most beautiful tasting room i have seen...modern, sobre, with burned orange hues, chromium bar, very good and attentive service. Had the shrimp burger which was excellent and at 9$, a deal (served with fries or soup-chili). 7 taps open when i visited, solid offerings. No samplers but free tastes are given if you are nice. Close to the airport!

Visited with a group of friends mid-afternoon on a Friday (before a La Bamba hajj). Located in a very non-nondescript business park, I was pleasantly surprised to see a well designed interior tasting room with plenty of bar space, and tables through out. The place was billed as a deli, though the menu included pizzas and a variety of other options. I believe they had 8 of their beers on when I visited. The service was friendly, and really handled our group well. Great place to throw some darts and have some crazy fresh beer. There was something about this place that really reminded me of Black Raven in Seattle.

I love this place - best brewpub stop on this Wisconsin tour Iím on! Cool chill vibe in here, beer bar + small restaurant. Pizza available, plus flights of their wonderful beer (7 oz size samplers - trying all 9 is a test!). Beers consistently had great body/palate and monster foamy heads. Bought a hoodie sweatshirt here too.

Visited Ale Asylum in Madison on a Saturday afternoon for beers and a tour. The tour was pretty simple since the brewery is small, but the brewmaster/owner was informative, passionate about the company and his beer, and very engaging. He encouraged as many questions as possible and was open in his responses. Free beers were poured from bottles at the end as we were shown the bottling line. The bar/restaurant area is cool, modern, and clean, with dark orange walls, black trim, and a lot of Ale Asylum stuff on the walls. They have a great aesthetic and art design, which helps because the place is in a little industrial park near MATC. The beer itself was a pleasant surprise to me, having just heard of the place shortly before my visit. The prices are fair and the service is just fine. I didnít stay- headed over to Greenbush for dinner- but hear the pizzas and other menu items are good. Madison is spoiled with a nice number of microbreweries for the size of the town, and this one is definitely worth visiting.

Stopped in here for lunch yesterday - man, this is way out on the edge of Madison, on the corner of an industrial park - not the greatest of locations - cold exterior, etc. - the interior was about as homey as it could be given the circumstances - Iíve never been to a brewpub that had itís own mechanized bottling line visible from the bar - it was kind of neat to watch as I had my lunch - the staff was young and hip (ie. lots of tattoos and piercings), but very friendly and attentive - the food is sandwiches and pizzas (there is not kitchen; they make all the food right in front of you behind the bar), so you get your food pretty fast- the sandwich I had was decent, but nothing special - the beers ranged from quite good, to mediocre - their strong suit seems to be session ales, and the stronger beers are less impressive - a good selection of ten beers, but Iíd like to see more interesting styles - overall a nice place to stop, but I prefer the Great Dane downtown.

Boring prefab/industrial park on the outside, comfy if modern and a bit too shiny inside with black tabletops and blonde woods, very new. Didnít try the food (only sandwiches I think) but the bartenders were very cool and the beer was basically all well done, from the lightest BMC-friendly stuff to the big Belgians and stouts. A must visit in Madison, IMHO the best beer in the city at the moment.

Finally stopped in Ale AsylumÖ I love this place. The pizza, made fresh at the brewpub, was excellentÖ itís craft pizza so to speak. They offer a wide variety of choices. I already knew the beer here was going to be solid, and I wasnít let down by the handful of taps I hadnít tried before. The sampler platter is $1 a glass and you get some pretty good size pours. Building is what it isÖ In an industrial park, lined with Ale Asylum posters everywhere. Non smoking inside, always a plus. Location is decent, not too far off I-94 and not too bad of a drive from Milwaukee. Iíll definitely add this one when making that all too frequent trip to Tyranena.

Very cool place located in a commercial area. Interior is nice and clean, not huge, I could see it getting packed in there. Service is pretty much sell ordering at the bar, but they brought out the sampler to us. They had a couple of food items but we didnít eat. Value on the beer was excellent considering the quality. This place is a must stop if you are in the Madison area.

Stopped by at lunch on a Monday. Had the whole place practically to myself. Sandwiches and pre-made pizzas (sandwich was good). Located in an industrial strip mall. Nine beers on tap and all available in full or half sized samplers. Belgians were decent.

Tucked into an office building right next to the airport. Interesting location. Pretty unassuming from the outside. Clean bar/seating area adjacent to the brewery with a patio on the side. The patio is a bit noisy due to the traffic on Stoughton Rd. They usually have most of their beers on tap and offer a sampler for those who are interested. They were selling several of their beers in 6 packs and you could also get them in growlers. Overall they are decent. I have never eaten here, but they have pizza and sandwiches.
