On main drag in midst of strip mall. Back side for entrance was way easier than front. Inside big and dark as the other Great Danes are, although there is also a nice beer garden. Their taps are a range of their brews - none of which have ever impressed, but still a range of styles. Food was good. Terrific smoothie shop downstairs.

This is often our go to place for a quick meal and a solid drink. The food is great and expanding. It has a good local bar feel and is a great place to watch a Packers game. The standard beers are on average pretty good. The Scotch and the Pilsner stand out. They also have a frequently changing offering of 4 or more specials which can be surprisingly good. The food is good, beer is good. I am always up for eating at the Dane.

Not as nice as some of the other locations. Offers some different brews that other locations do not. Food and service is generally about the same.

I first visited the Fitchburg location in 2011. I liked the atmosphere, but the service was very slow. Amazing beer though, so I wonít complain.

Great atmosphere, very nice with the 2 story storage tanks visible. Geat helpful staff. Excellent with the up-to 12 4 oz sample platter to get a nice selection of their tap beers. Very good food.

The service was decent. The selection was mediocre. The food was decent, as well. I canít say much about this place. It was a very popular place, given the area. Not hard to get to from Verona, but it is certainly located in a odd part of town. Wait....what the fuck am I talking about; I donít live here! The Fitchburg location is not the location pictured. Imagine a newly built strip mall, that isnít exactly a strip, but intermingled buildings that give the impression of a strip mall. The place is adjacent to fairly large apartment complex. Lots of wood paneling, and some brewing equipment that wasnít derelict, but it didnít look very active. Overall, it was akin to Twainís in Atlanta, Pike Place Pub in Seattle. Itís not exactly like the aforementioned areas, but thatís as close of a comparison as I can get. Itís a great place to rub elbows with locals, but the locals know if youíre a local, so you might be met with some implicit hostility. Not saying the locals were mean, but I was expecting more of a "local" feel. Ambiance is pedestrian. Try it out once, and I think youíll be over it. Sheboygan.

Very friendly service. Food was served quickly and was very good. Beer sampler selection was great. Atmosphere was a bit yuppie for my taste... too many vodka mixers and martinis being ordered...also the odd looks due to my biker gear. Did not like the cooking staff taking up bar space while eating their lunch. Good to see they are eating their own food, but this did not seem professional. They should reserve a place for workers to eat away from the bar.

Nice atmosphere for the two level brew pub. The food I had was spectacular. A burger with a brat patty and bacon with sharp cheddar on a Bavarian pretzel bunÖ very good. The wait staff was friendly and informative and helped me fill up my 10 flight sampler. While none of the beers were out of this world, most werenít bad. I would return here for the food alone and could find a beer or two on the menu to enjoy. The lone knock would be the lack of styles amongst the 11 beersÖ two pale ales, two pilseners, and a pale lager made up about half of the available choices.

A large selection of food that is very good. Service is rather good, been only bitten a few times but a random screw up. Beers are average to above average, but good enough to share with some buddies or co-workers. Work Happy Hours are always great. It is now non-smoking, which I like but Iím not a fan of such laws. Itís a large open place that seats a lot of people, so it can get a little loud.
