While not really a great beer destination, the food and atmosphere are awesome. Fresh, local ingredients. Fixed up old building. Really a unique stop. The beers are hit and miss, mostly miss. Id stick with safe offerings..Porter, Wheat..the others are quite full of diacetyl. Ill go back, but not for the beer.

Stopped here this fall, nice ambience. Service was a little off though, had to wait for the server at the bar. Frankly I think I could have poured my own beer, drank it, and left the fiver on the bar and the server would have never known. I suppose it doesnít help that it was a Thursday afternoon with nobody there. Great place to visit if you are in the tour of southwestern Wisconsin. Check out the rest of town as it still maintains the small town USA main street feel.

Had lunch here on a quiet Sunday afternoon. Decent beer and better food - the bacon cheeseburger was pretty good. Had an interesting sweet corn souffle on the side. Stop in if youíre in on 151!

Brew pub/country inn located in Mineral Point. Despite driving through this town about 1,000 times on the way to and from Madison, I had no idea how cool it was until I came to check out the brew pub. The inn is a historic three story building made of limestone. The restaurant/brew pub is located on the ground floor. Hard not to give this one a 5 for ambiance. Lots of soul. Reminded me of some of the small inns in the English Lake District. Very cool. A bike trail runs past it. They had 4 of their own beers on tap the day I visited, all of which were decent for such a small operation. The food was also good. Defintiely a place to check out.

Visited with my mom during fall color season. Really cool little old room in a little old inn (1850s I think) with thick limestone walls and a very comfortable, pubby interior. Food was hit-or-miss, momís pesto pasta was terrific and my eggplant linguine not so great; good bread and a decent herring appetizer. Three beers on tap, all of which were good though none came close to great. Very pleasant service, and this is a cool little town if youíre into antiques or books.

THe Brewery Creek in is nestled in little Mineral Point, WI. Mineral Point is my wife and myís favorite town in WI. We live one city over twards Madison. The Brewery Creek in has the best food, not the best selection on the menu however but also a small selection of tasty homebrews too!

My wife and I spent our honeymoon at their bed & breakfast which is just upstairs from area depicted above. We had lunch and dinner, and I sampled 4 of their beers. Its a nice place in a city with some rich history and an old world flair. The beer is nothing spectacular (I sampled a few of their products again at Great Taste last weekend), but I like the idea of having a brewery linked with both a restaurant and an inn. Iíve heard Oregon and Colorado do a fair amount of this, but the concept doesnít seem to have caught on yet in the Midwest.

A cool place in an old building in Wisconsinís oldest town. Great place to hang after touring the old town. Beers were well crafted, just a small operation so few beers were available. Food was very good - just a limited menu. The place is also an inn that appears very nice. Outside in summer is a very well used SUV (they claim itís multi use bike trail - donít believe it) trail. Makes it kinda noisy and redneck...but only at times.
