Nice, spacious place in the heart of Madison. We went on a Monday afternoon, so we didnít have a gauge of typical crowd levels. The 3 of us all had burgers, which werenít great and actually made 2 of us a bit sick later. Server was good. Lots of beer but none of it was particularly good. The Black Earth porter was by far the best i tried (of 8, I think).

Visited at opening on a Saturday. Nice atmosphere and excellent service. Parking was difficult. Did have a nice selection on tap. Looked at the menu but did not order. Prices seemed fair. Will visit again on my next trip.

Visited on a rainy Saturday night with friends. Larger brewpub with numerous areas. A typical brewpub section, a more younger themed bar section, and a basement section. Good amount of taps with the standards and some nice seasonal offerings including a Scotch Ale, German Pils, cask mild. Lots of casks on this day (4), which is very special to see. Beer lists clearly displayed all over the places on chalk boards, so that gets a bit of an extra for ambiance. Food was surprisingly varied starting with traditional pub fair moving on to some Mexican themed food then add some Thai dishes. I thoroughly enjoyed my spicy peanut soup and the burger was not messed up. Our server did a good job. Love that all the beers are offered in almost any size you want and samplers of anything. Also, had one bomber available to go. Very good place, I would definitely want to return to this place next time in town, even if there are other new places I havent visited.

Visited on July 4th during the brunch hour. The food here was absolutely terrific. The service was great, and the beers were above average at a minimum. The outside patio downstairs was also pretty cool. Definite stop in Madison. (Brewery #611)

A nice enough place with 17 home brews on tap and decent bar food. The beer battered cheese curds were the high point of this stop. (thatís sad).

Visited after GTMW 2012.

Why I decided to go bar hopping AFTER that fest is beyond me but the fact is that four of us stopped in, ordered a couple glasses of beer (wit and DIPA) and hung out for a bit before moving on to the next stop. Over all a cool atmosphere. Service was understandably slow on a Saturday night during GTMW weekend. Prices were average as was the beer. They do have a lot of house taps so itís worth checking out once. Didnt eat anything.

Walked over one night from the Hilton. I like that they have two distinct areas: bar and restaurant. No complaints about the food or the beer. Both were better than average with a surprisingly big menu and nice variety of beer styles. We had the nicest/friendliest waitress ever. I would gladly return.

Whenever I visit Madison this is a must stop. Nice pub atmosphere, nice pool hall, great service, and good food selections. Nice array of beers on tap. Service has always been excellent. The Mad City meatloaf s a favorite. They have killer Wasabi mashed potatoes on occasion.

Cool old building just a couple of blocks off the square with no real street parking close. Huge place inside with a bunch of seating areas and a long 15 seat bar with about 15 taps, including 3 casks. Most interesting taps with gold dog heads. Bartender was only semi-interested although knew beer stuff. Beers were only semi-interesting.
