First visit, October 2016. Old building with two bars (the other is called The Whiskey Ranch) sandwiching a tattoo parlor - seems very Wisconsin to me. Anyway, inside it’s a high (tin) ceilinged affair with a long wooden bar on the left, half a dozen booths on the right, wood floors and a fairly old-looking decorative back bar. Two of the taps were crap, the rest all decent stuff, including Revolution (which surprisingly isn’t common around here on tap), Deschutes, Ballast Point, Karben4. Prices slightly high for this area - so low compared to most of the country/world; service was fine - I just had one pint because I had a few minutes to kill waiting for someone. Didn’t try the food which looks like typical bar stuff. All in all kind of a cool homey place, and Janesville isn’t exactly hopping with great tap selections, so I’m sure I’ll be back.

I stopped in for a co-workers Birthday party on 7/9/2011. This is probably the best place in the Janesville/Beloit area for great craft tap beer. It might not be the most "fun bar" in town but definetly a beer advocate’s dream! I got Ale Aslyum’s Bedlem and an interesting immperial stout that I didn’t catch the name of. It wasn’t too busy at the time so I was able to chat with the bartender a bit and he was nice enough to give me a sample taste of the immperial stout to see if I wanted a full glass. He even offered me a sample of Squatter’s IPA and said how well it had been selling for them. Can’t say I’ve ever been anywhere where I’ve ordered 2 good craft beer and got two samples on the house. Great workers and beer. A must try if you are in the area!

Great bar, good beer, good people. Might seem pricey, but if you join beer club you get a dollar off all taps and a badass mug with your name on it. And the food speaks for its self
