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.

Great place if you love hops. Hop vines outside as you enter should tell you all you need to know. Regular brews are some of my favorites and seasonals are really good as well. Food is a good value and is very good pub fare.

Nice, comfortable with a helpful/friendly staff. Not a massive food selection, but still quality creations. Had the turkey, muenster, pepper sandwich and it was delicious. I highly recommend taking the tour which was lead by one of the extremely knowledgeable brewers. I canít wait to see what they are capable of once they move to the new, larger location in the fall.

Stopped by New Years Eve around 8pm after dinner. The place is away from all the action in downtown Madison and near a Airport in an industrial section. The ambience was dead abouth 20 people in there. A pool table some tables a lounge area and the bar area with windows revealing the brewery. I ordered the sampler which consisted of 6oz of their 10 beers on tap, some of which I already had (would have prefered if I could have picked out the 5-6 that I wanted). Most of the beers were average, turned out the better ones I had already had in the past. Overall just an average stop for me.
