A landmark on Oshkosh’s Main Street, Oblio’s has had the same owners since 1979 and they have continually reinvested in the tavern. The biggest change in recent years is busting through a few walls to expand into neighboring space. They had about 20 beers on tap during my visit this week (including two different $2 pints advertised on the large chalkboard near the main entrance) and many more by the bottle. Although located in a college town, Oblio’s attracts a nice mix of young and old. A well-lighted public parking lot is located behind the building. Arrive before 9 p.m. to get a seat at a bar (free, freshly made popcorn). Wisconsin outlawed indoor smoking in mid-2010, so the smokers have relocated to the outdoor patio.

I went to this place on a weekend. It was so packed that it was elbow-to-elbow and standing room only. Predominately college-aged and 20-something crowd. Had above average taps including Bell’s Sparkling Ale and New Glarus Belgian Red. Did not see bottles because I couldn’t make it physically to the bar. VERY smoky.

I stopped in after the Hops and Props festival in March of 2006 but due to my altered state, I forgot to pursue it here.
The atmosphere is nice. Oblio’s recently doubled their floor space by opening up into the adjacent building. A great place for the addition of additional seating, pool table, etc.
The quality is nice. They’ve kept the historic flavor....right down to the extremely high tin ceilings and lots of original woodwork.
Service was great, but what can you expect when you get a chance to talk to the owner, who is bartending and happens to love great beer too!
The selection has to be the best in Oshkosh with 27 taps, 22 of which are craft and imports. While there, I had a chance to sample some Rogue Shakespear Stout, North Coast Red Seal Ale and Sprecher Black Bavarian. They also had some New Glarus, South Shore, Lagunitas and many other fine craft beers. According to the owner, 6 of the taps are rotated regularly.
I thought the value was very reasonable. Pints ran me a mere $3.25. Not a bad deal at all, considering what some of these go for in the bottle.
Overall, I must say that this is the kind of place I could hang out at on a regular basis if I lived in Oshkosh.
What could be better than drinking great (reasonably priced) beer and having someone behind the bar to talk beer with?
Check it out if you find yourself in Oshkosh!
