The Old Fashioned was our last stop on our first night in Madison. The room had a bright, modern feel, but there were lots of photos and signs from Wisconsin's past.

We were seated and given the late night menu. The first 6 items on the menu were Wisconsin artisanal cheese trays. The rest of the menu was more standard bar fare. Local cheese, meat, and produce is featured to great success. I shared a cheese tray with local parm, sheep's milk and gorgonzola cheeses. I ordered the house burger for my main meal. Best burger I've had in ages.

The tap list also follows the local theme. Central Waters, Lake Louie and Capital were among the Madison area representatives. I had the Lake Louie scotch ale and it did not disappoint.

I really liked this place. The emphasis on Wisconsin food and beer makes this bar special.

One of my favorite places in Madison. A solid selection of WI beer on tap (usually about 30-40 available), complemented by an array of bottled craft beer. The food is also excellent - can't pass on the cheese curds and Old Fashioned burger!
