Really cool place. No TVs. Bartenders absolutely knew their beer and had cool bar tricks to go with it. 7 beers on tap with a bunch of bottle choices too. Food was great. Me and the lady split a pizza. Good value for what you get. I had a full pint, plus a flight of the rest of the brews. I canít wait to go back.

I am enamored by this place and their beer. It has some sort of "crazy" feel on the inside, pictures of their beer stuff all over the place with various styles of rock íní roll playing in the background, dim lighting. Almost exceptional service, and they do have a good selection of their own beers on tap, several "tap room only beers" too. Well priced. They do offer food, but I did not have any. I wanna go back, badly.

A great place and a must visit. The service is great and the beers are excellent. They are all available for try and growlker fills as well. The food, although modest hits the spot and is of high quality!

Great brewpub to visit while in Madison. Service was good, great selection of draft beer! Did not have food during my visit, but it sure smelled good! Definitely a must stop brewpub.

Great out of the way place in Madison Wi. A.e Asylum anchors down Madison as far as beer goes. Their selection on tap is all you need. This is a classic brew pub, indoor and outdoor seating .

I love these guys. Almost didnít appreciate this gem enough while I was still living in Madison. Great staff and neat story of where they started from.

Visited on July 11, 2006. Location and parking isnít the best when looking for a parking spot for a disabled person. Beers were great and large selection to try. Bartender was good for pouring samples because I told him I was from out of town and he didnít need some drunk guy from out of state at his bar all afternoon if I had to drink 10 pints of beer. Good beers, take out in only growlers at the time hopefully they will bottle some of these and the Madison people can trade some good beers to the ratebeer nation.

We planned a small weekend up in Central Wisconsin and decided to hit up as many breweries as possible. I came across this place on RateBeer and decided we had to try it. I will definitely drive the 2 1/2 hours again just to go to Ale Asylum. Big selection of their own beer, all of it great. Get the sampler - itís a good value and you get to try 10 beers, 4oz each. Loved the Hopalicious, Bedlam and Ballistic IPA the most. We stocked up on a few 6-packs before we left. You must try this place!

Got to enjoy the rather quick and informal tour. Has $2 pints for happy hour and the sampler at $2 a beer (large tasting glasses). Enjoyed the brewers style that is fixated more on the taste of the hop rather than the bitterness. Will definitely stop back when in the area!

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. New location, updated rating. Wow. Destination brewery. Go here.
