In a what seems to be small-brewery standard industrial park on the East side. Tasting room/dining area is really nice, Ale Asylum labels/stickers/posters cover alomst evey square inch of several walls. Nice "woody/Modern" look. Beers were all excellent, food choices looked very good and pretty expansive, though we just threw darts and drank. Definitely a good stop in madison if youíre out on the East side, and worth a side trip even if youre not.

Stopped by for dinner on Friday before the Great Taste. Not especially busy, and they were not pouring anything special or otherwise doing anything for the festival. My pizza was ok, my wifeís pizza was not good (veggie). A very large place, and coming from Minneapolis, I canít help but compare this to surly in both size and atmosphere. Staff was friendly, they had about 10 beers on tap but had room for more.

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.

Met up with my brother-in-law here for lunch and some brews on BVeryís recommendation. Location was easy to find and close to highway. Service was very good and there was a decent selection of beers. Did the sampler of 6 for $15, the servings were large and waiter said was about 3 pints of beer. Solid place to stop by when in the area.

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 08/2014): Ale Asylum is located on the northeast part of Madison near the airport on Pankratz. There is a large parking lot in front of the building.
The interior is dark with sort of a heavy metal theme, with red walls and hanging lights. The beers available are denoted by lit signs behind the bar.
As for the beers, there are around 11 available. On our visit the menu included a Blond, Hefe, Nut Brown, Kink Belgian, Porter, Stout, Amber and a couple IPAs. A sampler is available. The beers were above average on the whole.
Service on a relatively slow Friday evening was good. The bartender was personable and knew the beers.
We did not have food on our visit.
Overall this is a worthwhile brewpub to visit in Madison, with nice ambiance and a solid beer list.

Probably my favorite brewpub in Madison. This is a large place, with a tankard visible outside. The taps available are available as signs above the bar, lit if on, dark if off. No TVs. They had about 10 taps, all were excellent. I really enjoyed Big Slick (a super chocolatey stout) and Bedlam (a Belgian IPA). Calyptic session IPA and Ambergeddon were solid as well. The menu is a few salads, sandwiches, and pizzas. The chicken peanut salad was delicious. Overall, excellent beer, this place is not to be missed.

Stopped by here at 1pm on a Sunday, at the end of my trip to Madison for GTMW. You canít drive by this place in miss it. Itís very big and conspicuous. Outside looks pretty cool and modern. Very easy parking. I only entered the taproom, didnít explore much further. I was hungry for lunch, but the limited menu didnít really interest me, mostly because I didnít feel like spending $12 on food. The metal menu is neat, though, and the food looked pretty good. No small 4oz samples are offered afaik... Either a splash or a 7oz shorty. Shorties were reasonable at just $2, but the flight of 6 6oz pours was $15. Not sure how that works, maybe I misheard (no, I asked again and thatís how they do it... I was scratching my head on this.). The taproom is pretty airy bright and aesthetically pleasing. Spacious comfortable modern and smartly decorated. Beers I tried were solid, above average. A solid place worth visiting all in all, but if I was a local I donít think Iíd be here often, after trying all the beers.

Visited 09/2013 after a very adventurous bike ride in the direction of the airport over the adjacent golf course and through hedges. Probably advisable to come by car, given the size of the parking lot. Refurbished industrial look with large tables and some cozier nooks and corners. Attentive enough student service scurrying about. Had tastes of all of our 10+ groupís tasters, but at that point I was just happy to get something with punch to drink to drown out the bramble stings and only the Hopalicious stood out. Quite a few other reputable offerings went out quickly...Will have to revisit in person or by growler.
