Kind of hard to find. The staff was very friendly and offered us a free tour of the brewery. I had the Scotch ale which I thought was pretty disappointing. If I didnít know better, Iíd swear they gave me the wrong beer. Iíd be willing to give them a second chance, though.

Stopped in here for lunch yesterday - man, this is way out on the edge of Madison, on the corner of an industrial park - not the greatest of locations - cold exterior, etc. - the interior was about as homey as it could be given the circumstances - Iíve never been to a brewpub that had itís own mechanized bottling line visible from the bar - it was kind of neat to watch as I had my lunch - the staff was young and hip (ie. lots of tattoos and piercings), but very friendly and attentive - the food is sandwiches and pizzas (there is not kitchen; they make all the food right in front of you behind the bar), so you get your food pretty fast- the sandwich I had was decent, but nothing special - the beers ranged from quite good, to mediocre - their strong suit seems to be session ales, and the stronger beers are less impressive - a good selection of ten beers, but Iíd like to see more interesting styles - overall a nice place to stop, but I prefer the Great Dane downtown.

Tucked into an office building right next to the airport. Interesting location. Pretty unassuming from the outside. Clean bar/seating area adjacent to the brewery with a patio on the side. The patio is a bit noisy due to the traffic on Stoughton Rd. They usually have most of their beers on tap and offer a sampler for those who are interested. They were selling several of their beers in 6 packs and you could also get them in growlers. Overall they are decent. I have never eaten here, but they have pizza and sandwiches.

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.

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.

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.

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 here on the way to Darkness Day. Hard to find, because itís in such an odd location. The place was busy, but there was plenty of seats. The first word that came to mind when I stepped inside, was kitsch. It seems like a trendy beer bar. You have to wait in line to make your initial order, only to have a waitress take the rest of them. Seemed strange. The patrons were mostly hipsters and were very unfriendly. SeveraI people made ignorant comments at me for no apparent reason, leaving me feeling hostile. I got their stout, which was beyond mediocre and stepped out to the patio for some air. I was berated on the patio by several people for smoking...In the designated smoking area. Also, from the patio I had a picturesque view of anti abortion protesters across the street at Planned Parenthood Wisconsin...This place had a surreal touch to it...Back inside, my food was waiting. The food was just plain bad. This place was a massive dissapointment. F*ck hispter/elitist beer places.
