The beers are all great. I never had one and thought, hey I wouldn't order this again. The atmosphere is decent, was there on a Wednesday evening and the place was rather full, an inviting inside, decent music was on. The service isn't bad, order at the bar, get your sandwich at the window. They picked up the sandwich trays and wiped the table down when we were done. The selection is a tough one. The variety is small, a couple soups and only deli-sandwiches, but the selection within your sandwich is great, you could come 100 times and have a different sandwich every time, and they don't skimp on the meat, always a plus. The beer selection is obviously good, usually around 9 or so on tap. The food, like I said, although limited in variety, good sandwiches make it a perfect place for a light dinner with lots of beer on the side!

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.
