4.44/5  rDev 0%
vibe: 4 | quality: 4.5 | service: 4.5 | selection: 4.5

Atmosphere: This is a great place to chill and definitely knows what it wants to be: just a straight-forward public house. If the day is right one can just sit outside and chill watching the traffic on East Wash and enjoying a good day!

Quality: Can't no beat the quality of the beer and other malt beverages they have on the menu. I go there for the Belgium and Wisconsin taps.

Service: As far as I can tell, it is a one-man shop when I have been there. The service is prompt, friendly, and willing to talk if engaged.

Selection: One of my favorite selections in the midwest.

Food: Who need food.

Overall: you can spend 1-2 hours and have 3-4 quality beers for under $20...that is a good life! (699 characters)

a true midwestern vibe...right on East Wash, and totally unexpected...but inside, it is a glorious watering hole (112 characters)

Stopped here on Friday with a group of 7, sat at some tables in a chill corner. For a place that was as packed as it was, it was pretty damn relaxing. Craft beers and craft cocktails, there was something for everyone in our group. No food served here but I did see a few people bring food in and even saw a pizza delivered to a group sitting at the bar. Will definitely stop here every time we are in Madison. (409 characters)
