I stopped here based on the review. The beer selection is passable. a few taps, at least they didn't have your standard BMC anywhere. Maybe bottles, I didn't look at that part of the menu.

Atmosphere was decent, a little noisy. The service was decent too. They had a good number of folks on staff so things were moving fairly quickly.

The food was pretty good. I ordered the ribs, and they were fall off the bone tender.

One comment, bring cash, they don't take credit card. At least they have an ATM on site if you happen to forget...

This was my second visit to Alchemy, the first time being the Surly/TBS pre-party for Great Taste of the Midwest last year.

I really like the feel of the place, a laid back airy cafe kind of vibe with low key music playing in the afternoon. The bar is elevated, towards the back left end of the room. Tables in the front windows, and another elevated seating area in the back. Wood floors and railings, plenty of sunlight in the day, local art on the walls, and a small patio area out front too.

Taps were largely local, a few exclusives like Capital Hop Bock and Bells 3rd Coast Old Ale (keg had just blown though), New Holland Existential, and local standbys like Ale Asylum Hopalicious. They had maybe 20-25 bottles of various stuff listed on the menu, nothing too wild but a decent variety. Also some creative mixed drinks, one used Rogue Spruce gin.

Didn't try the food, but our table ordered a few appetizers and they were a cut above typical bar food. There seemed to be a good amount of organic stuff on the menu. Alchemy is a great neighborhood place and i'd return anytime when visiting Madison.
