I should preface this by saying that my experience was probably uncommon because I came here with kids - I do not often bring my kid (let alone someone elseís kid) to a brewpub, but I checked out the website and noticed they had a kids menu, so I assumed the place was fine to bring kids to (they also had crayons and coloring pages, so in principle, they seemed cool with kids) - however, the hostess seemed annoyed that we were bringing children in (god forbid we bring kids in at 1pm on a Friday), even though they behaved just fine - the waitress also did not seem thrilled and, to make matters worse, the staff did not pay us much mind and the food took forever to get to our table (several tables around us came in later and had their food before we did) - anyway, I was pretty perturbed by my experience in this respect - to the other stuff - this is in a strip mall area in west Madison, right off the belt line, so easy access from the highway - dark and cave-like inside - they have a lot of old kitch and other crap all over the place - an obvious attempt to make it look like and old midwest neighborhood bar - it doesnít really work - the beer selection was quite varied, with a lot of interesting styles and variations - quality, however, was just so-so - nothing bad, but nothing that wowed me - the food was average in price but was actually quite tasty (despite the fact that it took forever to get to us) - overall, even if I had had stellar service, I would have found this place merely okay - the vibe, service, and quality had me thinking, "This is the most highly-rated brewery in Madison?" - itís an okay spot, but certainly not worthy of itís current rating (92/100).

Right off the highway, stopped in to try to get GTMW tickets. Didnít work out but they had a nice bathroom! Taplist seemed decent with prices and variety. They had a buffet for the people who had waited all night which was nice. Will try again when not exhausted driving.

One time visit on a saturday night with some friends. The feel of the place is a bit weird, old "vintage" stuff with some hipster vibe, lounge like atmosphere and a fish tank. The host seemed like we were bothering him but the waitress was fine enough. Lots of beer on tap with varied styles including a Gratzer, a pepper beer, and baltic porter. Seemed like we were just a tad early from some newly spiced saison and just missed the BA beer. But a large variety with lots of less traditional brews. The beer was all average, nothing wowed me but nothing flawed. did not eat. would return after trying some other places in town.

Very cool vibe at this place, even during lunch on a Wednesday. Most annoying thing: beer list that is not up-to-date. One might expect a few beers out, but this was way, way worse. They listed a beer that they actually have not yet put on (and happened to be the one I was most interested in). Sigh. Food was nice, server was a bit too peppy for me, but that was ok. Iíve tried two of their beers so far and they have been solid.

Very nice, large brewpub. Stopped by on a recent visit to the Madison area. About 15 of their beers on tap, and a few guest taps. Beers were above average, but canít remember one that really stood out. Did not try any food. Service was fast and friendly. Worth a try for sure.

Dinner time on the Wednesday night before July 4th. Decent sized crowd, even early, a great sign. We were seated fairly promptly in this oddly average and boring-looking restaurant. Our server was efficient, friendly and beer-savvy. The food was good, too. We tried several of the wide variety of beers, none of which were bad, but none really stood out either. Decent enough joint. (Brewery #610)

Visited October 9, 2010.

Large place with a cool fish tank behind the bar. I went in pretty late, maybe 11pm. I sat at the bar and got prompt service. They have a LOT of house beers on and trying them all was work. Unfortunately I wasnít impressed by too many of them They had a saison that was OK and a few others that I wouldnít mind trying again but on the whole they werenít that good. Actually, I think the best beers Iíve had from Vintage were at GTMW. Prices were reasonable and so was the service. Might stop in again due to the fact that they have so many beers to try.

A great place with fish tank behind the bar, flat screens, and a wide assortment of home brews and some guest taps. Very friendly service and tasty bar food. You can see their tanks behind a wall of glass.

This is a great estalishment, out of their 20 or so taps, they dictate a few of them to other local microbrewers, nice touch. The selection of their own beer is top notch. Their food ifs good Americana fare. Pricing is decent.
