A great place with some flaws. Some are just 2 sides of s coin, but I guess ill tell both.
Negatives: our beers were all served in shaker glasses..super lame, esp for a place of this caliber (we ordered a Saison and some doppelbocks. Always very crowded and busy and staff often overwhelmed. The tap list isn’t exactly exciting, esp if you live in WI, most of the beers were pretty basic.
Positives: Tap list is huge and lots of bottles too with a good variety of styles and breweries (all WI). Right on the capitol square. Nice WI tavern feel to the place with food that matched. Food is fantastic including some nice WI bar snacks. Prices were shockingly fair, esp for the location and quality.

I’ve actually been here a couple times, once for brunch and once for the Friday night before GTMW. There are 50 taps, which were pretty hardcore local and regional when we were there. The place is big, with 2 halves that each have a long bar. There are some booths and tables. Good vibe, laid back, old brewery stuff on the walls. The food is good. Service is cool but they were a little overwhelmed on that Friday night. Prices are fine. Just a super cool place. Definitely recommended when in Madison.

Visited for dinner on a recent trip to Madison. Was very busy, but were called to our table in about 20 minutes. Very large selection (about 50) of Wisconsin beers on tap. And many more available in bottles In fact, most everything was from Wisconsin. That is a nice touch. Flights were available at a very reasonable price. Service was excellent. Couldn’t ask for much more from any establishment. A must visit.

Large establishment split into front and back bars. Delicious but large portions of sloppity-glop burgers and cheese curd type food. Extensive and ever-changing draft lift with about a hundred bottles as well, making it the most extensive and highest quality beer selection in Madison for the traveler and local.

I found a seat at the bar on a Friday night (11 p.m.) A little crowded but happy. Friendly service. 54 Wisconsin beers on tap, and there were lots of good ones (double IPAs, stouts, other interesting beers). Samplers of 4, 8 or 12...at $1 per sample (3 oz. each)--I thought it was a great deal. The food looked o.k., with a lot of traditional Wisconsin bar foods (marinated eggs, cheddar popcorn, cheese curds). Definitely my favorite place in central Madison and a great, great place if you’re a beer tourist in Wisconsin.

Best selection of Wisconsin beers in town, they always have at least a couple of offerings from out-of-town breweries that are not to be found anywhere else in Madison. I usually do a taster flight. Easier to get a table than before they expanded but still always very busy. Sandwiches are all good, Friday Fish Fry is a ripoff.

I drank Moon Man on tap-very tasty!

Stopped to get a burger for lunch New years Eve. Located right across the street from the capital a old school look with a long bar and a couple of separated rooms. I was in there for brunch at 12:30 and found out it ended at noon (way too early to stop brunch). Saw a massive bilbord above the bar with a list of 50 taps, all from Wisconsin and a note at the bottom OVER 150 beers from Wisconsin served. WOW! did not expect this place to be this good. Service was decent. Selection was great, lots of beers I had not even heard of and they even had a bourbon imperial stout by Central Waters. The burgers were pretty damn good but the fries were over salted. Overall a great place for an out of stater to stop by.
