Very cool location in an old train station, reminiscent of Flossmoor in the Chicago area.
MId-week lunch hour was bumrushed, a big group had come in earlier, but our friends valiantly held a booth near the bar for us. Lots of cool framed historical memorabilia, train and football related mostly, with some local history as well.
Service was quick despite the unexpected crowd, and didn’t feel rushed. They had over a dozen beers on tap, and I took it upon myself to sample them all. Highlights were Green 19, Schwarz, Alt, and Berliner. Over the years i’ve tried a few of their beers at festivals and at the Old Fashioned in Madison, a fine institution dedicated to Wisconsin beer.
Food wise, the Noble Pig was an excellent choice, basically a pork overdose on a pretzel bun. The flatbread I tried was a nice lighter option as well. Thanks to Bison for lunch!
Located in an old train station next to a river, this is a nice location. 12 beers on the menu of which 3 were tapped out. Normally a flight of all 12 was $12. Food was above average and service was good. Prices seemed reasonable. Beers were above average. Nice place to visit.
This is a great place. The ambiance is excellent. I love the fact that they re-purposed an old train station into the brewpub. It is (obviously) themed with old railroad memorabilia. The menu is typical pub fare, but with some improvement twists. Didn’t have any appetizers, but the selection looked good. I had a bratwurst Reuben on a pretzel roll. It was an excellent sandwich. My buddy had a bison burger which he reported as excellent also. Prices were decent, service was good, and the beer selection was good also. Definitely a worthwhile stop if in the area.
Will need to go back and re-rate on a "normal day." Went following the Packer Shareholder’s meeting and the place was a nightmare. 6 of the 15 beers that were listed were either tapped out OR were supposedly not being served over the lunch hour. ??? The two cask ales were also a no-go. Certainly did not have the staff they needed to take care of the bar or the eating areas. That said, the beer was good and so was the food. Pretty average brewpub with a nice, long bar and various seating areas including outside. Somewhat rustic setting. Like I said, would like to go back as the food and beer were good, but come on guys...
Very cool brewery with a good selection of drinkable beers. If you get there and they happen to have their Loose Caboose, order it! It’s a hybrid Belgian IPA with Citra hops and could be an award winner. They also have some single hop beers that are tasty. Food is good but not amazing.
I love the beer, the food is nothing to write home about. excellent service. My complaint is they have not started larger scale production. Its a sad day when Hinterland beer is served inMN and T-town is not even found in Wasau. Get on this fellas!
