In a what seems to be small-brewery standard industrial park on the East side. Tasting room/dining area is really nice, Ale Asylum labels/stickers/posters cover alomst evey square inch of several walls. Nice "woody/Modern" look. Beers were all excellent, food choices looked very good and pretty expansive, though we just threw darts and drank. Definitely a good stop in madison if you’re out on the East side, and worth a side trip even if youre not.

Finally stopped in Ale Asylum… I love this place. The pizza, made fresh at the brewpub, was excellent… it’s 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 wasn’t let down by the handful of taps I hadn’t tried before. The sampler platter is $1 a glass and you get some pretty good size pours. Building is what it is… 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. I’ll definitely add this one when making that all too frequent trip to Tyranena.

this is everything a brewpub should be to me. interior and exterior decoration is more then up to snuff, easy to spot and comfortable inside. modern and clean but without being obnixious. with 8 to 9 tappers flowing at all times, including 2 or 3 belgians, you cant go wrong. their american styles are wonderful. their food is simple yet refined and prepared with great care. my bartender jillian was a joy and i also made acquaintance with another employee who preps the food for the sandwiches and even bakes cookies. i would love to sit here and get good and drunk rather then the two beer lunch i did today.

Nice place in a way outta the way location. Next to a lab in an industrial park. I won’t repeat ElGaucho’s description because it is dead on. Hope the beer geeks can keep ’em busy because the beers I sampled were all very good. I tried a dubbel and tripel - both excellent. The Nut Brown was very nutty and chewy. The amber reminded me of an Anderson Valley Boont Amber. Hope they are planning on starting small and expanding because Wisconsin has needed a place with these kinds of beers. WHY OH WHY ARE THEY CLOSED ON SUNDAY...WTF???

My go to place in Madison, great selection of brews and the pizza’s are all pretty solid. I personally liked the pizzas that they had over a year ago when they were hand made, but not a huge deal. Will be a sad day when they out grow this facility and move but happy to see them doing well!

This is a great place to stop for a few brews, their beer is awesome!

Magnificent. Absolutely great beers. Very cool atmosphere and great service. It’s not in the centre of the city but that’s why it was easy to reach by car. I definitely would like to visit again.

This is probably the most professionally designed and built brewpub/micro brewery that I’ve ever had the pleasure of visiting. The beer was good, but nothing really stood out. None of the more highly rate beers were available when I visited. I enjoyed my food choices. Even though the location is out by the airport, I feel that this is a plus because as great as downtown Mad City is, it can be awfully difficult to find a place to park.
