Very cool place located in a commercial area. Interior is nice and clean, not huge, I could see it getting packed in there. Service is pretty much sell ordering at the bar, but they brought out the sampler to us. They had a couple of food items but we didnít eat. Value on the beer was excellent considering the quality. This place is a must stop if you are in the Madison area.

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.

Visited August 9, 2013.
Very nice location. Close to the freeway and they have a nice patio as well as well decorated interior. The service was friendly albeit not overly knowledgeable on the beer. The food was good as well. With all that this could be a fun hang out if the beer was better. The tripel and the one IPA were alright but the others were a let down. They donít do flights outside but you can order a flight of 5 inside at the bar. So after we each finished our pints and food we went inside and ordered a flight. They also said that they give brewers a free beer and since we had a brewer with us they gave him a free glass of the IPA but spent the whole time asking about his brewery and why he didnít bring any beers to share. Probably better to not say anything. Also, the stout, oh man. After about 150 beers tried on the weekend that was the worst. It came out really murky, looking like chocolate milk. The initial taste was very burnt and ashy. That flavor continued to build in intensity, much like some chilis do. After about 5 seconds I was downing other samples just to get the taste out of my mouth. Horrible. Why would you serve that? Who thought that was a good idea?

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 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.

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.

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.
