Visited early February, 2019 with Mrs. Owl and some family that used to live in Madison and this is one of their favorite old haunts and I can see why. If you're keen on Working Draft and Toppling Goliath and big fancy shiny new breweries with tons of space, etc., this isn't that place, but it's awesome in other ways. Dimly lit (when we were there in the evening at least), lots of wood, leather, mahogany type joint. Kind of a cross between a brewpub and a dive bar/Irish pub in a way. Solid beer, nothing to phone home about, but not so bad you never want to go back. I'm not saying this is a destination brewery or anything, but we had a great time chilling in there, drinking good beer, and reminiscing about days of old. We'll be back for sure.

Long bar with brick wall, eclectic art on was, neighbor hood feel with tight parking. Reminds me of Public Craft brewing in Kenosha. I liked the art on beer labels. Many too many IPAs for my taste on tap.

Smaller spot, with a big bar and a few tables, the namesake brew system in the back corner. Service was decent, friendly enough, but definitely seems to cater to the local hipster crowd. Selection was ok, about 8-10 of their own beers, from mediocre to average. If you're in Madison for more than a couple days, it may be worth a stop.

Comfortable (if tight) space that seemed popular with locals. Unfortunately, beers on offer were limited in number and generally lacked quality. Sample sizes were available, but came at a hefty premium. Service was surly enough that I was happy to keep my visit short. Overall, not a place that I’d recommend to visitors. Only worth checking out if you’re on a deep dive of the local scene.

Smallish place. Long, dark woods but kinda bright. Bartender was standoffish but helpful. Beer quality was solid to very good. Flights are steeply priced. Overall worth a stopp.

Want to rate this higher. Very nice visit. Service was great. Limited selection of 9 beers on tap and a few guest taps. Beers were well made. Would visit again. Check out the cieling. Tasters were 4 for $10.

Corner place, street parking within a couple of blocks. Long J-shaped bar, and you can buy your own stool for $4500. Solid beer selection and a few ciders, and staff had good recommendations. Food seemed mainly to be pretzels, but there were probably other things as well. Worth a look.

Very nice space. Old building that they’ve restored. Got a sampler of 4. Beers were fairly average.

A small brewery with a wooden bar and high tops surrounding it. Service was good with a single bartender keeping the beer flowing for a rather large crowd. They had 12 beers on tap with samplers available. No food available but prices were good. A pretty cool small brewery with solid beers.
