This place has a "Supper Club feel" to it. They always have great food and the beer selection is great. Definitely worth checking out.

(October 2016) two more visits have both offered significantly better service, overall better beer choices, and I finally had a food entrťe - a salmon salad with roasted veggies, almond butter, bitter greens - which was excellent. So time to update and uprate; this is indeed one of the best spots in Madison at the moment and Iíll keep going back.

First visit, August 2016. Iím not sure why I took so long to finally check out this place, but there it is. I had gone to the old JT Whitneys a few times in the middle of the last decade - mixed feelings about that place, not really surprised it died, because Madison is getting pretty competitive for beer and brewpubs. Anyway this newer place strikes me as an improvement overall, though Iím a bit tentative in my enthusiasm over both service and beer. No complaints about the ambiance - theyíve done all they possibly can to make a 90s-era "family restaurant" building look cool, dark and comfortable and pub-y. Dark enough that you may have trouble reading the beer menu or writing stuff down if youíre at the bar, actually. I had 6 samples or pints - out of the 17 they had on - and every other one was meh while the other half were all good or at least interesting. Food: I just had the pretzels, not going to give a rating based on those; I will say that the menu looks just OK, not as creative as some of my other semi-local brewpubs. As to the service - I think I got there right at changeover time; my first bartender seemed distracted (others near me were also somewhat ignored), but half an hour later there were fresh servers who were paying a bit more attention. I should also note that prices arenít listed on the beer menu, and single samples can be over 4.00 for some strong beers. So overall - mixed to positive on one visit. There will certainly be more. Original score 70.

Very cool place-seems it was originally a chain restaurant turned into a brewpub. with that said, they added some ambiance to the place. Service is great and lots of different beer styles on tap. Beer is solid overall but nothing i had was mind blowing. a very solid brewpub with great food. Recommended for this area.

Visited with noted beer celebrities thealume and deyholla. Large, cavernous pub/restaurant. The bones of the place arenít great - itís dark and a bit impersonal, but it feels like theyíve made a good effort to liven things up. Our group sat in the back room and had excellent service. The wait staff hustled, answered our annoying questions about the draft list, and were more than happy to put up with our general jackassery. The selection of beers is pretty damn expansive. At least 12 house beers were on offer in addition to a selection of guests that included some limited stuff from Goose Island. The beers were generally well executed. The food was tasty American pub fare (burgers, tots, sandwiches etc.). Prices were more than reasonable. Overall, the beers and food didnít set my world alight, but they were decent enough that Iíd be more than happy to stop in the next time Iím heading through the area. Worth checking out.

Large brewpub on the southside of town with ample parking. Large bar and lots of seating. Surprisingly slow on a Saturday(possibly due to being here in summer). Large selection of beers including some unusual styles. A great place.

A nice brewpub that is comfortable and the beer is tasty. What else can you ask for. Friendly service, flights available, & cask conditioned ales. Nice crowd on a Friday night.

07-04-2015 - Good size bar seating with TV, outside seating and quite spacey inside. The service was good and very attentive. The food menu presents a large selection. I had a very good burger that was cooked precisely the way I ordered it. The beers are hit and miss. Five (5) beers per flight that are each 5oz. pours. Overall, the beers were lacking aroma and flavor for the ones that I ordered. This establishment is worth checking out and is an establishment that I would check out again.

More of a restaurant feel to this place, central bar, a bit dark inside. Tons of beers on offer, all were so-so with a few stand-outs (stout was tasty). They had two special releases just out the day we visited that were big, boozy barrel aged things. Food was tasty and creative.

(Visited 08/2014): Vintage Brewing Company is located in Madison on Whitney Way in front of a shopping plaza. Itís not too far off the Beltline and there is ample parking around the building.

The interior is laid out like a family restaurant, with well-worn booth and table seating in multiple rooms. The wraparound bar is located in the center of the main room and features a huge fish tank.

The brewpub features 20 handles, all but one of them Vintage beers. On our visit the selection included many year-round offerings like a Stout, a couple IPAs, Velouria Belgian, and Pils. Some more unique offerings like Cabernet Barrel-aged Jinja Ninja, Polotmavy Incorrect and Rye Whiskey Barrel Dedication. The beers were decent on the whole with a couple throwaways but a few standouts too. Sample sizes are available.

Service at the bar on a weekday early evening was good. The bartenders were attentive in bringing rounds and were knowledgeable about the beer.

We did not have food on the visit.

Overall this is a pretty solid and well-established brewpub in Madison and is worth checking out.

First trip to Vintage was in September. Had their Pumpkin Disorderly, which you can only get there. Fantastic beer! Got a growler to take home. Food was good, but I only had an appetizer. Iím sure if I went there hungry, Iíd be happy. But I had more to drink that day. Service was great. I will be back!
