The Ale Asylum is an interesting Oasis sort of an island or Asylum all by itself. The building is much bigger and more modern than I anticipated. The building looks similar to may poured concrete warehouses. Inside however the decor was much softer and conducive to a brewery. Part of the dinning room overlooked the bottling line which was neat. The quality of beer and food provided was outstanding. The selection thou slipped a notch becuase there was not a "kids" menu...if I didn't have kids this would not be an issue....however....since there wasn't one and my kids can be assholes....it sucked the life out of my visit...for any one from the Asylum reading this...PLEASE ADD CHEESE PIZZA TO THE MENU AT A MINIMUM. The service was great....very kind and attentive. Overall the prices were fine....being from Chicago I thought they were reasonable. Recommendation....leave the kids and spouse at home! This will allow for maximum enjoyment.

Struck me as Surly light. A nice big facility but it there's no real sense of character. They have quite a few beers on tap but they become a bit samey. Few stand out as superlative. Definitely a solid place to visit if in Madison but not a destination.

Pretty decent brewery vibe with nice outdoor seating.

Service was ho-hum to start. We sat at dining tables, not the bar, and it took forever to get a first drink and eventually place our order. After that, service was decent.

Selection of both food and beer are ok, with about 8 taps at the time of various styles.

Price was average brewery prices.
