Typical wood dominated brewpub with a lodge like feel. Big horseshoe bar with a huge glass window above that lets some natural light in which is nice. Friendly service but beer was just okay. Food was decent pub grub. Right off the expressway so worth a stop. Service was friendly and attentive.

Wonderful wait staff..big food and beer meanu. Very comfortable...
Stopped in on Sunday morning on my way from Madison to Milwaukee. Not a whole lot of people around but the few that were were watching football. Nice people over all and the place was clean.
Service was slow (but nice even if not all that knowledgeable) and she spent most of her time either watching the game or talking to this guy at the end of the bar. I did eventually get a sampler and a menu. Decided that I didnt want to eat there after all and left after trying the sampler.
The beer ranged from no thanks to pretty decent. Over all nothing was bad but nothing was all that impressive either. I believe that 2 or possibly 3 of the 9 beers were seasonals.
What I did get out of the place (aside from 9 new ticks) was directions to a place called Brennans that has a ton of cheese and beer singles. I figured since I’m in Wisconsin I have to do some cheese tasting in addition to beer tasting.
Stopped in here last time I was in town. Seems like a local joint overall, nice vibe, though in a shopping area. Staff was nice enough, the sampler is a good deal. Beer is average to pretty decent overall. Food was nice, had the wings but the pretzels seemed frozen and reheated.
Overall impression of the beers in general: each has a very distinctive single characteristic and then nothing else. Slightly above average beers, none were bad. Nice surroundings and service. Decent food.
Stopped by after work one day. Ambiance is a combination sports bar/restaurant with a large central bar and tvs. Service was a bit slow but nothing to complain about. 8 beers on tap plus a few macro bottles. I didn’t try the food on my visit. Prices seemed a bit high. Nothing particularly special.
Cool, wooden building with exposed beams. Brewery memorabilia around. Good service. Decent selection of 9 house brews and a few macros. Had only German-style food, including soft pretzels (just Super Pretzels) with a nice mustard, local sausages and wursts. Spatzel was awful. Fries were bad too. Pretty darn cheap. I would go back.
I’ve been here several times, mostly for convenience.. as I don’t live far from there. Like downtown, I enjoyed the breweriana decor, and the wooden beams gave a cool feel to the place. The food is quite good, and service is usually attentive and knowledgable. The beers are below-average brewpub fare, but there should be something to quench your thirst. Prices are reasonable.
Have been here a few times with good results each time. The ambiance is pretty normal brewpub stuff, but the massive beer can collection was very impressive. Service has always been pleasant with a decent selection of most major styles. The food has always been very good, and reasonably priced. An overall good place to have a slightly above average beer.
