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 .

Went during an early dinner hour on a Tuesday in July. The gigantic place was packed, always a good sign. The staff was friendly if maybe a bit impressed with themselves, but the service was good. Iíd call the ambiance high-tech biker. We shared the black bean burger and it was outstanding, and all the beers we quaffed were above average to excellent, making this probably the best stop on my brief visit to southern Wisconsin. (Brewery #606)

Nice bar, two levels, pool table, and lots of seating. They have 10 taps and you can get a flight, but my favorite tap ran dry.

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!

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.

If you are there at off peak hours you are fine, otherwise it is usually quite crowded. The place has a pleasing modern look, but after a while there really isnít much too look at. I believe this is the type of place that can benefit from a TV or 2. Kinda high priced pub food. Great beer.

Stopped in on a Friday night. Was extremely busy. Service was a bit slow but understandable. Food selection was limited. The sandwich I selected was excellent. Their beers were well above average. Think a must stop if in the area.

Somewhere in between a brewery tasting room and a brewpub. Has one or two beers not available in stores. Went on the tour once and it was one of the best brewery tours Iíve been on in terms of tourguide enthusiasm and technical detail. Couldnít believe the $2 happy hour. A nice place to visit for the tour.

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!

Interesting place in a light industrial area by the airport. Face of the building looks like office space, however inside is a smallish bar area, a fair size restaurant seating area and an outdoor patio facing the main drag - some personality. Getting the tenderís attention was not always easy on a Sat late afternoon, and not always because of the crowd. The food was tasty, if not something you really wanted to watch them prepare. 9 taps with a nice range of styles, and the beer quality is fine. I will be interested to see their new facility in August mostly to see if it causes their offerings to expand.
