A dimly lit fairly standard brewpub atmosphere. Eleven taps plus one cask, with some interesting options. Food is average at best brewpub fare. Service was slow on our visit on a not too busy Saturday afternoon. All in all a good stop if youíre in the area but donít know if this is a real destination based on the lackluster food and service I experienced.

Just off the main drag in a kinda cool town, only 15 minutes from Madison. Not too big of a place; bar on main floor/pizza place upstairs. 12 taps of all GT beers. Shrug? Ones I had were solid to not great. Pizza was very good though. Hope to be back and given a chance, will go.

Been here several times, surprised I have not reviewed. Place is deceptively huge. I bet between upstairs and downstairs, they can fit about half the town. Bar has an interesting setup, and there are a few things to look at down there. Upstairs is the pizzeria, and I think a pool table and some video or pinball games. Service can be hit or miss, as some people that work there truly are grumpy. Beer is also hit or miss, and do not depend on their website to tell you what they have on tap, as it is rarely current. Be advised that there are no growler fills after 9 PM!!!! Worth coming here for the pizza though, so I will be back.

Made a mid-afternoon stop on a Wednesday afternoon. The place was understandably somewhat empty. The service was OK, although our waitress couldnít wait for us to close out our tab so she could leave. The little bit of food we sampled was good, if a bit of American average. Same for the beer. I shared the ginormous sampler tray (they did offer a lot of different beer titles) with a friend, and none of the beers either offended or overly impressed, and the variance in styles was barely noticeable. The one I liked best earned a pint and a midling score. Average American brewpub tavern. (Brewery #609)

Visited 10/9/2010. Pepsican says this place sucks now that the brewer left for Sweet Mullets but when I was there I enjoyed it. Might have to stop in again next month on the way to Madison.
Stopped in on a Saturday afternoon after stopping at New Glarus. This place is right on the edge of a quiet looking neighborhood and I could definitely see this being a neighborhood bar. Inside is clean and old looking, all wood. The bar is long and there was plenty of seating.
The bartender was very nice and prompt. He set me up right away with a sampler and answered my questions.
I had some pretty good beers (Curly and Freedom Forward) and a bunch of decent beers. The only bad beer was the Captain Fred.
With 12 taps going Iíd definitely return here if in the area as Iím sure theyíll always have something new to try.

Love this place! Great Beer - I really like the Maggie IPA. Their burgers are from local beef and they taste fresh. Awesome.

My wife and I stopped in for lunch on a Saturday afternoon. There was about a 20 minute wait for seating but I enjoyed the decor while we waited. There is the pub and restaurant on the ground level and the pizzeria upstairs, both which will offer beer. Food was tasty, especially the grump chips! I did a little research and decided to try one of their better rated beers which was great and took home a 22oz bomber of another to enjoy. Small quaint little place but very clean and busy. Highly recommend.

Iíve been here twice and both times I got the full tasting flight. They brew a wide variety of brews ranging from humdrum to quirky to extreme. They do a lot of less-common styles you donít expect to see at a brewpub. Food is tasty but nothing special. Worth the slight detour between Madison and the New Glarus brewery for a beer-themed excursion, or if youíre in town for a craft fair or something.

Enjoyed a spot out on the patio, had a super friendly waitress as well. Ordered a beer flight with nachos and cheese curds. Nachos were awesome and the cheese curds, the beers however left me rather disappointed.

Stopped in and quite enjoyed my visit. It appears there is an upstairs with a pizzaria that opens later, but I visited the main pub. Nice feel with friendly bar staff. The beer was above average with a few misses. Food was nice too! Definitely worth a stop with the opportunity to sample 12 beers.

Neat little place that fills up quickly on the weekends. I have been wowed and under-impressed with several of their beers. Food has generally always been exceptional. Friendly staff. Worth a stop if going through the area.
