Blue Pants is located within a warehouse in the suburb of Madison. The building isn't much to look at, but has size in its favor with plenty of room for them to grow into it. I guess that this is a recent expansion and I got the feeling that they haven't quite settled in fully yet. There wasn't a lot of branding/signage on the outside nor the inside of the tasting room, but I knew we were in the right place when I saw the Blue Pantry Food Truck parked outside. The brewers started out as homebrewers (not surprising now days, especially in a town filled with science geeks!)
I ordered the full sampler so we could try everything. I saw funny blue-pants shaped wooden sampler trays on display behind the bar but we didn't get one. Our beers were served in plastic cups with the names written in Sharpie by our pleasant bartender. The laminated cards describing the beers were a little sticky and gross, so I didn't look too close at the details. One of my favorites was the Workman Common, a hoppier take on a classic Steam beer. Most of the others were fair representations of the style (Pale Ale, Double IPA, Black IPA) but none of them really wowed me. A few--like the Highwater Hoppy Tripel--had some fermentation flaws that detracted from my enjoyment. Their special release cabernet barrel aged Belgian Red was served from a wax-topped bottle and had quite a bit going on. I actually picked up a bottle of this to take home when I ran into it later that day. The brewery's tag line is: "We like to make unusually good beer." I think they are close to that description, but perhaps not quite there yet. I will certainly check them out next time I'm in town to see how they have improved.
