Visited on a recent trip to a Wisconsin football game to do the Jump Around! It took a while to find the place, but once we did I was very glad! They had a house beer sampler with about 10 different beers. It kind of stalled in the middle of the road brews - too many amber colored and malty sweet beers for my palate. But we had a pizza and a BBQ sandwich that were quite good. Cool place!

Stopped in on a recent trip while coming back from MI. Sort of off the beaten path but that was ok as there was a WI football game going on and the downtown area was packed. Nice little bar and tables as you first walk in and tables off to the right as well. Friendly staff. Food menu is small but the soup, pizza, and sandwich we got was pretty good. Ended up grabbing a few beers as well. Overall, a cool bar that I would stop in again at.

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 youíre out on the East side, and worth a side trip even if youre not.

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.

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.

Nice little place on the outskirts of Madison. Really out of the way, in the sort of location youíd think sells linoleum siding or something. Anyway, you walk in almost directly into the bar area: a few standup tables, a booth or two, couple of pool tables. The bar is great: small, intimate, and you can see the brewery operation itself right behind the bartender. Quite solid draught selection: Bedlam, Ballistic, Big Slick, plus the porter, and a few others. Great for the money, plus you can get growlers for between $10-$15. Definitely going back when Iím in Madison again.

Nice little brewery, the taster consisted of every beer they had on draught, took a bit of time to get through as it was the last place I visited. They offered food but Iíd eaten. Nice bar and seating area, canít remember off hand the names of the beers, I guess thatís why people take notes. All the beers were pretty solid, it was about 6 weeks ago and thatís why I canít remember the beers. This brewery is not downtown, and the parking is plentiful.

Nice place, slow the night I visited, but really nice. The beer I had was good, pizza was great, crowd was older, surprised that not many people were there. Staff was nice, very midwestern. Will come back the next time Iím in Madison.

Awesome place. I thought that it would be a lot closer to the downtown area, but itís, actually, very close to my hotel room. Great service. Their taps all all of their house beers, that is - no guest taps here, folks. Even though the aforementioned statement might seem discouraging, it shouldnít be; their house beers are great. Their beers are great. The menu isnít big at all, but they do have a few nice selections. I had the black bean burger with their Soup of the Day -- which was excellent. This place has some wonderful things about it, e.g., thereís a pretty nice pool table in the back. Iím in Wisconsin on business, and they made me feel right at home. There werenít any seats at the bar, but thatís cool. The Hopalicious and the Gold Digger were both great beers. Overall, this is an awesome place, and worth a stop if youíre in town .
