First stop after dropping the girls off at the airport. This is a pretty fancy production near the airport. Parking available, but can get pretty full. They had about 10 taps of their beers, all available in 5 oz sample pours for reasonable prices. Did not try the food. I thought the beer quality was pretty solid in general.

Fairly large brewpub / restaurant located in a rather unexceptional-looking commercial business park. Considering the space, Karben4 have actually done a nice job making things feel comfortable – it’s bright, airy, and has a nicely appointed patio (no dogs allowed, unfortunately). There’s some ticker-friendly features offered - wifi was speedy and outlets were plentiful. Table service was really prompt, which was a welcomed surprise given how busy it was during our Saturday afternoon visit. About 12 house beers were on tap, most of which were a bit above average in quality. Flights of any combination of beers are possible in addition to standard pour sizes. Overall, absolutely one of the best breweries to check out in the area.

Smallish brewpub/taproom with a decent sized patio for the summer. Service is decent though can be a bit slow at time. They have 10 beers on tap that frequent with some frequency and samplers are available. A pretty eclectic menu that is pretty good. Prices are in line with the area. A pretty solid brewery/brewpub.

Smallish place in an industrial park. Nice eclectic vibe. Bartender showed that your stereotypical millennial can actually provide amazing customer service. Six beers on offer, all I tried were good but a couple lacked finesse. Samples from $2-3 each. Biscuits and gravy special was quite tasty and the regular menu looks good. Good value overall. Well worth stopping by.

Stopped here at the recommendation of some friends who had visited previously. Really a very nice taproom. Sat at the bar and the service was outstanding. All over it when we needed beers but otherwise let us be. Knew their products and were extremely friendly. Food looked very good, did not eat. 8 or 9 beers on tap, $5/pour I believe. Beer was anywhere from solid to excellent.

Stopped in before Great Taste and found a busy place. Not quite enough parking. The space is modern and a little sark. Bright 4’ x 5’ art hangs and it is bright Asian, and almost glow in the dark. EDM plus classic tock plays steadily. The beers are all rock solid. I had the sampler which consisted of 6 beers plus one on nitro. All good. I had a brat and had no complaints. Can’t comment anout other offerings. Samantha was my server and knew her stuff and was quite personable. This place is very convenient and worth a return stop.

Modern looking place, sparsely populated on a Wednesday night. Six beers on offer, available as a flight. Popcorn available, but you have to ask; other snacks looked tasty. Beers were decent. Server was friendly. Nice mellow drinking spot.

A nice little spot for a beer in Madison. Pretty good service during my visit, did not have food while I visited. Worth stopping in for a growler fill, but definitely check to see what they have on tap before going if you’re looking for something in particular.

Great spot! Beers are great. Individually priced 5 oz pours - $2 per pour with $3 for special brews. Very reasonable, and I appreciate the flexibility in ordering. Didn’t eat. I’ll be back every time I’m in the area. 6 beers on today, free parking in a parking lot.
