This place is all wood with a nice sky light. 4 or 5 round tables, a large long table and 6 or 7 seats at the bar.

Big selection of TG Beers, some you can't get anywhere else they're so special. Service is good, it's like a local bar. It has a kind of Cheers feel to it for Decorah.

I enjoy the specialty beers here, like the Firkin Fridays. You can also buy TG t-shirts, glassware, and growlers of TG Beer.

I have seen people ordering pizza in from Mabe's I think, other than that no food is sold on premises. There are pretzels at the bar.

Stopped in on a Wednesday afternoon on my way to La Crosse. Very nice place. Lots of wood and natural light. Kind of part tasting room and part small bar. Lots of room and places to sit and chill besides sitting at the bar. Some table games and good music piped in. Place was pretty quiet, but still had a number of people and small groups stopping in for a few brews.
As hoped had my first PS on draft, and it was awesome. Had about 6 other TG beers on tap, and 2 guest taps. Todd the manager even pulled out a bomber of Pompeii that a few of us shared. Grabbed a few bottle of PS and Golden Nugget on the way out.
Great little place to stop and as expected the beer was just amazing.

Very small place with even smaller parking lot. The beer is out of this world but I'm wishing they will expand a bit. Bring your own food or order out and have it sent to TG not a problem so that is nice. If they had Assassin, Mornin Delight, and KBBS on tap always it would be near heaven. They do have a Furkin once a month which is an experimental IPA or what have to try. I personaly have had one that was out of this world and one that was OK. Call before you visit because they sell out quite often and its worth buying some to go so make sure they have some to sell. Cheers!

Visited during an 8000-mile road trip over the summer. Stopped here after a very long day of driving and camped near the river in Decorah (a great spot!).

Clean and bright taproom with cheap flights and pints of extremely high quality beer. Yea not everything will be a BA Stout or hyped hop bomb but from what I had I found all the styles to be well-brewed and flavorful (Pale Ale, Golden Lager, Irish Red, IPA, Stout) That is by far the most important part. The to go selection was good and it seemed like they did reasonably priced growler fills of most beers. I did not expect even PseudoSue bottles to be in stock so that might have changed my experience.

Small tasting room overall but the quality of the brews makes up for it. When we were there it was not busy at all (maybe 10 other people) but I could see how it could become cramped. If you are in the area (within an hour or two) it is a no-brainer to visit TG if you are a huge beer fan or are into taprooms in general. Do not expect to be leaving with limited releases (although I'm sure people get lucky once in a while).

The tap room itself is nothing crazy as it's located in middle of no where northern Iowa. The staff were very nice and served with great service.
