First things first...if you're coming from the west (E. Washington), you'll need to make a 3-point turn or turn left from the right lane whilst checking your blind spot to get into the parking lot. There is also a bike rack out front.

A-Very good atmosphere, dimly lit but you get some good sunlight through the windows sometimes. Tunes playing on the computer behind the bar, no TV, good conversation, diverse and interesting clientele.

Q&S-Top notch local and internat'l brews on tap and available in bottles. Always a quickly rotating batch of Belgians with a couple of regulars that seem to get re-ordered. I don't know how many of the bottles on the list are actually in-stock, but I've never had to find out because the tap selection is broad enough to keep me happy.

S-Probably the best bar service I've ever had in any establishment. They are quick to react, always get the right order, are very knowledgeable, polite, and pleasant.

V-Prices are comparable and probably slightly better than most other places of similar quality.

If you're in Madison, stop by here. It's just south off Hwy. 30, but a lot of people familiar w/the area don't even know it's here because it is rather new and unassuming.

They have one of the largest/best varieties of beer in town. They always keep a rare selection you wouldn't normally see. It can be a little crowded inside but they have a nice patio to use if the weathers nice. Some of the beer I a bit pricey but you get what you pay for.

This is a sweet little beer bar on east Wash in Madison. They have a long wood bar w backless stools, and some tables and a bench. Tap beer was balanced between Belgians and Midwest beers. They were playing music when we were there, but it was low and not intrusive on conversation. They have an impressive collection of barware, and were able to put my Chimay in a Chimay glass. I really appreciate proper barware. Bartender did not seem particularly chatty, but that was not a problem. 18 taps, lots of bottled beers, and a great selection of scotch, whiskey, and some bourbon. Website is weak, check them on Facebook & Twitter.

The pizza delivery guy dropped off three pizzas for patrons while we were there, and I believe the bartender had some carryout food delivered also. Not sure if they had menus there, but prob so. Crowd was mixed w a few younger hipsters, and a lot of middle aged beer lovers.
