Another cool spot on the drive to GB. Large building which houses the production brewery, taproom and the brewpub in the basement. Tap room and brewpub have separate listings here, so rate’em both! Unfortunately only the brewpub was open on my visit. Quite a large lot in back means plenty of parking options
All indications are that the food was good, but I did not try it. Service, on the other hand was prompt and friendly. We are in the midwest, after all. They had a dozen or so beers on tap, including for "specialty" beers. Pretty good ranges of styles represented. Flights available, I asked for the "small" fight which was six pre-selected beverages (one is the house root beer), although the bartender said it was ok to swap one or two out if I wanted. There was also a large flight which I am guessing is everything. Unfortunately once again everything was great other than the reason for the visit - the beer. In this case all but one were pretty bad. The nugget hopped IPL was at least tolerable, but not enough to redeem the experience. Too bad.
A cool brewpub in the cellar of a large building. A bit dark but overall a cool feel. Service was good and the bartender was happy to talk beer. 10 beers on tap for my visit with samplers available. Food was pretty solid and prices were good too. A nice brewpub overall.
Stopped in today while in town for work. I will be repeating what most earlier ratings have said, but great ambiance here and service was very friendly. The visit started off great with seeing a t-shirt for sale that said "Beer the reason I get up every afternoon". The beer was okay and the food was very good, much better than expected from a brewpub. They had SN Celebration as a guest tap which was cool. Finally, $10 for 10 beer samples and a root beer is a steal.
Really cool building, pretty solid food, but pretty sub par beer. Still the spot to stop at in Appleton, and has a few seasonals to tick. You can buy their bottled beer to go here, which is nice to cool for a quick stop through. The food is good and claims to be all local, yet they have some plaque courtesy of Sysco on the wall. My elk steak was actually an elk burger, but the food was still overall good and interesting.
Stopped here on a Sunday afternoon passing through town. As a former brewery over a hundred years old this is the perfect setting for a modern brewpub. Sampled a perfect kolsch, malty and delicious octoberfest and pumpkin spice. They offer growlers and pick a six of their beers pre bottled as well. They also sell a dazzling array of glassware and produce two beer mustards of their own for sale! The food is chef quality and far above the bar for brewpub grub. Cheese curds were unique and delicious above any I've tried in at least ten other places! All food is locally sourced and the menu options are staggering. I also met the marketing director who deserves kudos for the success of this brewpub and expansion of tap sales. He was knowledgeable of marketing and what makes beer good. I wholeheartedly support this establishment and wish them all the best in future endeavors!
Okay, I flat out love this place and it has nothing to do with the beers. This vibe is terrific - great patio, and my kinda bar inside - dark stone dungeon in the basement. Flight of 10 beers + a root beer sampler for $10 - can’t beat that. Killer cheese curds. Friendly bartenders. Beers were just so-so, and that’s too bad, but I’d come here everytime I’m in the area because the vibe is so cool. 10 house taps + 1 guest tap. Plus the root beer, which was great.

Fairly easy to find right off hwy 47. Set in the basement of an old mill this place has great ambiance. A nice stop on my way down south from Northern Wisconsin. Ordered a Reuben sandwich and a six glass sampler. Most of the beers were quite good but none exceptional. And the sandwich was adequate but not great, very good sweet potato fries however. Nice place but not really worth going out of your way for.
Located in the cellar of an old grain mill building, the name is quite appropriate. Feels a bit like a bomb shelter in England during WWII. It is a stone cellar. Decent sized dining area, outside seating if you prefer. Private dining room with full wet bar available for reservations Separate and neat bar room with a couple tvs. Only odd thing was that the 5 locals at the bar at noon on a Saturday were watching European soccer. Kinda dark inside, so beware of daylight if you come here for lunch. Lunch far was pretty good, though only had a burger. Menu seemed American enough for dinner time. Id go back.

This was once the old Adler Brau microbrewery. The Stone Cellar folks have done a nice job of maintaining and improving on what they acquired. Nice ambiance in the bar area that fits the name - a stone walled cellar. Good selection of brews and great service. I would recommended stopping in and trying it out!
