I went here on a whim with my wife and am glad went. Our beers were suprisingly inexpensive and I was fortunate enough to talk with our server about the story behind were this beer was made. It turns out that the beer is only fermented at this brewpub location and trucked in from Minnesota.

Apparently this chain style brewpub has a ton of locations across the USA and even though I really have mixed feelings about supporting these large big box style brewpub businesses, my visit to this location was positive...but I am still in favor of local brewpubs owned by local brewers.

Our server was clearly informed about the process and styles of beers he was serving us (which there was many of). This brewpub was definately a more upscale style restaurant than most average brewpubs and the prices on the menu showed it. Fortunately, at this location, you get what you pay for regarding the food.

Because the Madison, WI area is filled with a ton of other great brewpubs (which are not owned by some huge corporation), I would not recommend this location but only because I support drinking locally made beer! But still it was a good experience, with great beer, excellent food and easy to find...right in the West Town Mall...ouch! Oh and another note for you smokers...all Madiscon businesses are non-smoking so go outside if you want to light up.
