Visited October 10, 2010 on the way into Milwaukee.
You dont even need directions to get here since you can see it from the freeway. Plenty of parking too. Inside is very large with plenty of tables and bar seating. Despite not having a lot of customers the service was moderately slow. I didnt eat anything there.
I tried 7 or 8 beers, most of which were just ok. Might stop back in simply because it’s right off the freeway.
Visited midday on a Tuesday and this cavernous, highway-side place was understandably pretty empty. The bartender was very friendly and attentive. We ordered some wings and they were promptly served and quite good. The beers were hit and miss. Worth a visit to find the hits. (Brewery #603)
Checked in here on the way back from Madison. Uh oh, I said on the way in as it looked like a retirement home. Inside I was definitely in the youngest quartile. Bartender was friendly and helpful. Beers were clearly crafted for the masses. Nothing bad, but all were safe and boring. Flight of six, of which you can only pick one, is $7.50. Maybe worth a stop as its right off the interstate but not otherwise.
A large restaurant with a focus on banquets. Place kind of has a chain feel to it and the bar is a bit removed from the rest of the place with a few TVs. Service was solid and the bartender knew a bit about the beers. 10 taps with a sampler available during my visit (plus bud bottles if that is your thing). Food was pretty average but the prices were pretty solid. A decent spot overall.
I decided to stop in here because it was right off the interstate, and I was traveling between Madison and Milwaukee - honestly, though, even if I were making the trip again, I would probably not go back - the place was nice enough - large interior space, but it still feels homey inside - servers were semi-attentive and friendly - the food was mediocre at best (although I was in at lunch - maybe dinner is better?) - there were only 5 beers on tap at the time, so even though I bought a sampler that was supposed to come with 6 house-brewed beers, they had to give me 5 and slip a sample of Beamish Stout in there to even it out - lame - the beers were mostly dumbed-down session ales geared toward the beer-ignorant, upper-middle-class folks of Delafield - their board made it seem like they had some exciting new beers coming up soon (BA barleywine, batch 500), but on my visit, I was wishing for something interesting - meh.
I’ve visited a couple of times since early 2003. From the outside, it’s nothing special, and the inside is fairly typical for newer large brewpubs, clean and breweriana-oriented with sort of a NW lodge look -- nice patio for warm weather though there’s nothing much to look at. Food --think I had a fish sandwich-- was good but the beer is the star: high-grav beers like the IIPA, Train Wreck and Okauchee Scotchie are top-notch, and the other stuff is all above average. Much better IMHO than any of the brewpubs in the cities it lies between (Milwaukee and Madison).
Went here for dinner and brews. Big open place that is fairly clean. Service was mediocre at best. Decent selection of beers but nothing too amazing, although I really liked the Hopfenstange Pils. Food was pretty good, a few items not typical to brewpubs. Value seemed decent. This is a pretty good place, if you find yourself in the area it might be worth a stop.
Big building on top of a hill right off I-94 that I’d passed many times and never stopped in. Very spacious indoor with a nice collection of old beer signs and serving tins along with some old cans and bottles too. The food we had (cheese bread) and saw looked/tasted excellent, so another trip back for a meal will be in the works. There were enough decent beers mixed among mediocre choices from the brewpub and of course macros galore for those not into experimenting. There were plenty of TVs throughout both big and small screen so it would be a decent place to watch a game. There was smoking around the bar, but I really didn’t notice the smoke at all.
