Stopped by Maduro for a night cap. As a cigar bar, smoke level was slighly high, however the crowd had cleared out reducing the smoke somewhat. I was pleased to see Bell's Two Hearted being served on cask. Quite enjoyable, smooth and round, the lower carbonation allowing the malt and hop flavors to play a larger role. I also had a Duchess de Bourgogne, slightly tart with apple overtones, remeniscent of biting into a Granny Smith!

If you enjoy a good cigar and a good beverage to go along with it, this is apparently the only place left in Madison.

When I went here they had a ton of Bell's beers on tap for an event prior to Great taste of the midwest. We hit it after the Great Dane as it is right around the corner.

It is a cigar bar primarily but the bartender knew his stuff about beer and it had an obviously nice beer selection. There was a few other things other than Bell's as well.

The beers were obviously fresh because of the event and a pretty nice temp.

I didn't buy a cigar and I am not sure if they even have food.

If you don't like smoky bars then don't go here, but I thought it was nice, worth a stop on a downtown Madison pub crawl.

This might be my favorite place to get a beer in Madison. Excellent cast of rotating taps (I've had ten fiddy, cask conditioned Bell's amber, Weyerbacher double simcoe, DFH red and white, and others) served at proper temperature into good glassware. Service isn't the friendliest but is prompt and courteous. Scotch list is great as well, harder to judge the cigars, though I do occasionally puff on one. Beer is priced pretty fairly for a bar, Scotch is a little pricier. The leather chairs and pressed tin ceiling are great, and even with a DJ it's fairly easy to carry on a conversation. This is where I went for my most recent birthday, and I plan on going next year too.

Stopped at this one the night before the Great Taste 2009.

Well located, easy to reach in Madison, this is a fairly small bar, standard looking, pleasant but not special except for the comfortable sofas. Bar is on one side, sofas on the other, single restroom which makes it hard when crowded like this night.
This particular night, Bell' special, so selection was amazing with 15 Bell's on tap, including two highly regarded, hard to get ones. I do not know how is the line-up on most nights, but this was special.
Cigar smoke does interfere with the enjoyment, but it was still worthwhile.
