This is a great place. Reminds me of an old rural English pub. Quaint, good beer selection, no TV, and great conversation. The owner is a past president of the local homebrewers guild. He sure knows his stuff. Clearly, the best selection of microbeers in the city. Also, a great selection of whiskey (that is made from malt also).

Stopped here to see what they had on tap as my brother and I were hoping from some Cantillon on tap. Instead we ended up having a Bitter Woman on the Rye, Alpha King, and SN Bigfoot all on tap. Nothing pretentious here, just good beer and friendly people.

This has got to be Madisonís best beer bar. Atmosphere is great. No TV, no sports crap, no loud music, no food. Just first rate Belgian and Wisconsin beers (about 18 taps and a large bottle selection). Looks like they have some pretty good whiskeys, too. The prices are reasonable, esp. during Happy Hour from 4:00 to 7:00. We had Ichtegem Grand Cru and Lakefront Bridge Burner (American strong ale - 8%) on tap. Parking lot is a bit like the surface of the moon, they donít have a website and they donít have a sign. But these are minor problems. Located on Washington Ave., a little north of the isthmus. If youíre anywhere near Madison, itís a MUST VISIT.

Imagine you could visit beer heaven, where all the taps are selective brilliance imagine the atmosphere is warm, calm, bright, with loads of boffo vintage Belgian wall signs and Westveleteren crates imagine it was only 10 minutes from where you work and itís $1 off from 4-7pm. IíM not imaging it, I donít think (pinching self). What a spectacularly great beer (whiskey too) bar. Vastly experienced and knowledgable ownership & service fabulous selection of brews alternating (they say) about monthly (I canít wait till next month though). Tonight it was the Capital Autumnal Fire chased by a Cantillon Iris Lambic. Last visit it was an Erdinger Oktoberfest Weisse chased by a Tripel Karmeliet. At happy, happier, happiest hour pricing. Still pinching.

Great place to have a Belgian or craft brew. No TVís ! Yeah Great atmosphere and great service. The beers are well cared for and the selection is wonderful. Also a wonderful selection of bourbon and single malts. Soon to become the best craft beer bar in Wisconsin ! Stop by and look for the Chimay banner outside. They are also bicyclist friendly with a great bike rack outside for parking. Highly recommend a visit !

The new place in Madison, owned and operated by Bill of the Madison Homebrewers and Tasters Guild (he is in chair of the Great Taste!). Only been open for a week, but this place shows some serious promise. Very laid back and classic ambiance (I think the bar is over 150 years old). Folks are helpful and knowledgeable (especially if Bill serves you). No food. Selection is evolving, but look for plenty of beers that you donít see around Madison everyday. Opening week had plenty of Belgians drafts (including a 2005 Cantillon Lou Pepe Framboise on tap!). American craft drafts are a deal and belgian drafts are priced right. This place could shape up to be as good of a stop as Maduro, so letís hope they keep the draft and bottle list interesting.
