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.

Great brewpub to visit while in Madison. Service was good, great selection of draft beer! Did not have food during my visit, but it sure smelled good! Definitely a must stop brewpub.

Visited on July 11, 2006. Location and parking isnít the best when looking for a parking spot for a disabled person. Beers were great and large selection to try. Bartender was good for pouring samples because I told him I was from out of town and he didnít need some drunk guy from out of state at his bar all afternoon if I had to drink 10 pints of beer. Good beers, take out in only growlers at the time hopefully they will bottle some of these and the Madison people can trade some good beers to the ratebeer nation.

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!

A great place and a must visit. The service is great and the beers are excellent. They are all available for try and growlker fills as well. The food, although modest hits the spot and is of high quality!

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.

Nice place in a way outta the way location. Next to a lab in an industrial park. I wonít repeat ElGauchoís description because it is dead on. Hope the beer geeks can keep íem 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???

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!

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.

Large, cool building.. Decent beer, okay food. Had a very rude young lady bartender but the other people there seemed nice, think we just got a dud. Not worth going out of the way for but if you are going by, itís worth a drop in.
