As a point of reference, I've had the pleasure of visiting around 170 brewpubs in North America. Business travel sure has its perks.

I'm typing this review courtesy of Ale Asylum's complimentary wireless internet access (currently working on one of their three Belgium offerings).

As others have mentioned, AA is in an industrial area and the inside is surprisingly sophisticated for the location. It's close to the airport so I decided to stop by on my flight out ($14 cab ride from the east side of downtown Madison).

To this point, I've had the west-coast hopped up Amber and a Belgium and can easily say the quality of beer here is worth the trip. It's obvious they take it seriously which is reflected in the product.

The only food offering is a small deli counter with premium ingredients.

With only two brewpubs to choose from in Madison, this one will be your better pick if beer quality is what you crave.

Update post visit: I also had their amazingly fragrant hoppy pale and an excellent sandwich from their deli. The place also has a West-Coast Choppers feel to it with the industrial decor and two bald dudes (one with a long goatee). Excellent work and worth the visit!
