Place was absolutely packed during Great Taste Eve. A huge place with 3 floors plus a loft. First and second floors are a bit rustic with the 3rd floor seeming a bit newer as well as a patio on the third floor. Service was decent considering the crowd and they had a nice selection of beers. I did not try the food on my visit and prices were decent.

Large place, oriented vertically. Selection is the same at each of the three bars, one on each level. Server was friendly and enthusiastic, very generous with the samples, and was quick to steer us away from our towards various beers. Full pints only, though; requests for half pints or flights were met with blank stares, the only drawback to an otherwise decent place.

Well kept. 2 floors, each with a bar, and a rooftop seating area. Good sized well selected tap list. Only ate wings, which we shared, and were gone too quick to remember. Service just wants to get you in and out. In addition, No less than 4 people tried to take away the clean glasses I had for the bottle I bought and didnít pour immediately.

Visited for the TBS GTMW pre party in 2012.

Interesting place. Three stories, each with itís own bar. I was mostly stopping in to meet up with some of the Beer Spot guys since they do this party every year but I got a quick flight and and tried a few things while there. As can be expected the night before Great Taste when thousands of beer tourists are in town the service was slow and the place was packed but I didnt hold that against them.

The selection was quite good. Again that may not be reflective of the rest of the year but I certainly didnt mind. Didnt eat but maybe I will this year. Prices were good on the flights.

Been here a few times during GTMW parties. Nice enough place, but I can never seem to get service.

I was here for the Beer Spot pre GTMW party so Iím sure I donít have an accurate read on the place as I didnít have food and the bartenders were working as fast as they could but there were just too many people there. The entire tap list was temporarily taken over by Shorts, Central Waters and Nebraska brewing and they brought many solid beers. Iíd been right next to this place so many times at Rileys but never knew this was next store. Iíll have to stop back when itís not so crowded.

Maybe it is because Madison lacks a truly great BBQ restaurant that this place scores so highly but the beer selection is nothing to sneeze at. My visit with the Friday before the Great Tate of the Midwest. Because the servers were so swamped Iím willing to cut them a little slack. If the same quality is present all the time then downgrade the score at least 15 points.

The food is nothing special but for the area a good addition. Locationwise being downtown next to Rileyís Wine of the World does not hurt business. Helping matters the most is the tap list. Rather than just compete on food alone Brickhouse sets itself apart with offerings that include limited release Central Waters beers. It is hard to judge what the regular rotation looks like but I get a sense they try to keep a nice mixture of local and national craft beers.

Overall this is worth a stop if you are in the neighborhood. My biggest warning would be parking which is extremely limited.

Wow, best new bar in Madison. Theyíve had Peruvian morning, unplugged cherry stout, bellís 900, GI Imp Brown and BCS, Ballistic, Hop Slam and NB Lips of Faith on tap so far and theyíve only been open a month. This place is awesome for downtown madison. Food was really good had the chicken wings and the ribs so far and no complaints. Bartenders seem to know what they are doing and are pretty knowledgeable. Third floor outdoor patio seems like it will be a great beergaten in the summer as it overlooks the capital. Only knock was there was no wi-fi as I tried to review beers during my visit... :( Bring your iPhone!!!
