Ughsmash  (138) Pewaukee, Wisconsin | January 8, 2008
This Dane was conveniently located near a client of mine, so I spent some time there. I found the facility warm and welcoming, with TVs available around the bar that were helpful for watching some B-Ball. This location has Dane beers, a few of which differed from the downtown selections, but it looks like downtown gets more of an allotment of specialty stuff. The food was on par with the other locations (great!), and the service was very good. Iíd prefer downtown over this location, but this was still great!

Big brewpub/restaurant. As mentioned in previous ratings, itís located in a strip mall. Not much karma, but then, who cares as long as the beer is good...and as at the downtown location, the beer is pretty good. I visited on a Wednesday afternoon, so it wasnít crowded. The bartender was very attentive and gave me a few free samples. I visited the downtown location on the same day and their lineups are a little different. I didnít eat here, but it looked the the menu was pretty similar to downtown, so I suspect itís decent.

Itís in a strip mall, and it looks pretty corporate and soulless, with the exception of the excellent horseshoe bar in the center -- that alone gives it a little character. The food is the same combination of pretty well done pub favorites, a few Wisconsin spins on same, and a fair amount of veggie-healthy stuff. Alas the beer list was weaker than Iíve ever seen at the downtown location, only one new one for me and that a pretty dang mediocre nitro stout. Oh well. Certainly worth a stop if youíve never been to the downtown one -- but if you havenít, why not go there?

This place is pretty nice regarding the quality of their beer and the building itself. However, it lacks some character in my opinion, itís almost borderline franchise for me. Service and food were good and since my brother lives in the area Iím sure Iíll be back. However, I prefer my Titletown for the crowd, atmosphere, and food.

After several visits to the downtown location, I finally made it over to Fitchburg. AMBIANCE: Certainly more upscale than downtown. We were there for lunch, and about 1/3 of the people seated near us were wearing ties. It lacks the feel of the place downtown, but they layout is better and it certainly seems to be better maintained. (You wonít find food on the floor like downtown.) SERVICE: Considerably better than downtown as well. SELECTION: Fair. Black Earth was on tap, which was solid. The others were fine. But five 4 oz samples for 6 bucks is a nice deal. They have other sampler platters as well. FOOD: Same as downtown. Solid menu. The applewood smoked bacon adds a nice touch to the sandwiches.

Following up the downtown location is tall order. This place is completely different than Doty, but itís outstanding in its own right. Upscale maple interior. Has an outdoor patio with adjoining bar and a wrap around deck that is covered in removable canvas. There is also an upstairs section with its own bar. Well worth a visit to West madison. The year-round beer selection was identical to Doty but their seasonal/specialty brew selection was smaller. There was one unique brew not available downtown: ESB.

Lacks the same sort of atmosphere as the downtown location, probably because it is located in the middle of a strip mall. Once you go inside, it still feels like a brewpub. The food is above average - you canít go wrong with most things on the menu. Beerwise, selection might be a little more limited than downtown but expect to find at least 8 beers on tap. Overall, if you are in the area, stop by. However, if it comes down to a decision, go downtown.

I wasnít as big of a fan of this location as the other. Although, they did have the "barleyport" there when I was there. Try to go during an afternoon... 3pm or so to avoid a crowd.

well well, i visited the fitchburg location-large brewpub in the suburbs of Madison filled with yuppies on their lunch break. Well, the place was smoke free so i sat at the bar and ordered a 6 beer sampler and a buffalo chicken sandwich. The beer was hit/miss, but the service kicked ass!

Wide selection, reasonably good food. Not as nice as the original location downtown, but the beer is just as good.
