4.2/5  rDev +2.4%
vibe: 4 | quality: 4.5 | service: 4 | selection: 4 | food: 4.5 | $$

Had lunch at the Asylum on 12/15/07.

The atmosphere of the place is typical "pub in a box". Clean and attractive, with interesting brewery related decor.

The beer and the food were both strong points for the Ale Asylum. I had a soup (Chicken fajita) and sandwich (roast beef) combo and Big Slick Stout. The food was very good and so was the beer.

The selection was good, with a number of styles being represented. All beers were Ale Asylum beers, no guest taps or bottles, that I could see. I don't recall all the different beers but I'd have to say that there were about 10 different choices, on tap.

All the bartenders were college aged guys and none of them really had the enthusiasm for the Ale Asylum beer that you would expect with a place that brews it's own. I asked one of them some questions about the beers that were available and their answers were less than knowledgeable. Otherwise, they were all very professional, courteous and attentive, so they still earn decent marks for service.

I still wish there was a choice in the price category, between 'reasonable' and 'a bit pricey'. I'd have to list this as about average, being neither of the other two. Of course, I had to give it some rating so I leaned towards reasonable.

The food menu isn't the largest, but still a great selection (pulled pork is great0. the year-round beers on tap are very good and the seasonal/ specialty beers are ones I look forward to trying.

Look forward to stopping by every time we pass through Madison. (~2hrs from where I live).

Glad that Bedlam is finally a year-round beer and even happier that they now distribute to IL.
