4.44/5  rDev -1.1%
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!

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.
