First visit, October 2016. Classic old Midwestern tavern that looks like it was last remodeled (or created) in the 60s or 70s - wood paneling everywhere, a fake-leather-topped bar, really worn bar stools (that were about 3 inches too short for comfort - and I’m over 6 feet tall). Friendly servers, prices were right - and the beer selection is the best I’ve seen in this town with several from Bells & New Glarus, some Lena, Three Floyds, etc. Baumgartner’s (right across the square, a 3-5 minute walk) has better atmosphere and has food, but if it’s just selection you’re after this might be your pick. Or both!

For a tap-only beer bar tucked away in Monroe, wi, this place has an amazing selection of (mostly local) micros. Don’t let that statement fool you though, they do have liquor for your friends that don’t drink beer.
The owners take pride in their bar and treat all of their patrons like friends. When I moved to town they had me hooked right in to their "bar family" on my first visit.

There are other bars in town, but not one with a tap-beer selection like Bartels.
