Took a spring break trip to Madison, Wisconsin and went to Brasserie V on our last night. BA daisybleu and I arrived about 4:00pm expecting to have a beer or two, then move on, but as we sat at the bar we decided to stay long enough to have dinner.

Soft lighting and jazz set the mood for the place. The taps had a strong bias toward Belgium. The bartender was happy to offer samples of a beer if you weren't sure and also kept an eye on the street, which saved another patron from being towed. At 5:00pm, they brought out and opened a firkin of Thornbridge Kipling. I honestly hadn't heard of either the brewery, but I love real ale.

Each of the beers I had (St. Bernardus Prior 8, Maredsous 6 Blonde, and Thornbridge Kipling) were served in proper glassware and at proper temperature. The food was also very good offering a short, but varied menu with lots of things that looked good to this foodie from frites to steak - I had a corque monsieur that was terrific.

Brasserie V is not the place to watch a game and eat piles of generic pub food. It is a place to quaff a well-made and presented beer and perhaps enjoy Belgian-style pub food or fancy fare. If that appeals to you, as it does to me, go to this place! (1,220 characters)

along with the wine and hop shop, Monroe St is now a beer incubator destination! (80 characters)
