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 .

My go to place in Madison, great selection of brews and the pizzaís 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!

Taking care of Madisonís ale needs. Have not had the pizzas, but the combos sound great. Solid beer. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Tour is one of the more decent I have been on.

Stopped in for a sampler after the OSU-Wisconsin game on 10/16/10. Small bar area, but we were able to find two seats. Service was good and the guy knew plenty about the beer. Selection was pretty solid. Pizza smelled good, but I wasnít hungry. A good spot to end the night.

Located close to the airport, itís a great place to hit if a flight is delayed and you have some time to kill. Pretty small inside, but plenty of tables and some outdoor seating (seasonal). Everyone that came in seemed to be locals/regulars. They do pitchers, which may explain the softball jersey-ed groups. Donít go here for the food, but if you just want some snacks, they have glorified-Dijourno-style pizza and cold sandwiches at lunch time. Friendly staff, good bathrooms.

Nicely renovated and comfortably stylish space in an office/industrial park, but conveniently accessible off of 51. Parking was a little limited. Friendly staff and a diverse and interesting tap list. Smells like a brewery when you enter. I did not eat but food menu looked limited, though they some of the pizzas sounded pretty interesting.

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!

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.

Stopped at this place on a busy Saturday in the early evening. Itís very modern and interestingly designed on the interior. Almost appears like a martini bar on the inside. They had most of their standard offerings on draft, of which most are at least pretty decent. I was kinda hoping for some brewery-only special releases, but oh well. The tour was very fun and probably the most detailed/informative tour Iíve been on, even though the tour group was really large. We had one of their pizzas, wihch are essentially frozen pizzas warmed in their little toaster oven thing. It was surprisingly good and they had several combinations of interesting toppings (goat cheese and walnuts, etc). I would definitely go back and recommend to others.
