Located in a sleepy little town in the main street area. This old world building is inviting and seems like a comfy shoe.
I enjoyed a rueben and the service was solid.
The real key to this place is the quality and types of beers. A selection of beers such as a baltic porter, Milds, and infused beers. Not your typcial brewpub for beers. Not to mention the many awards they have won in both national and international competitions.
If you are near Madison, I would not hesitate to make a side trip to this brewpub.

I've visited this place quite frequently. During the evening hours, it is quite busy, extremely loud, and staff are pacing back and forth through out the place. The restaurant has tables with high chairs, low chairs, and there are some wooden booths. There is an upstairs that serves pizza but I've never tried it.
As for the food, it's mediocre. I enjoy the Salmon Summer Salad and their burgers but that is pretty much it. I've been disappointed with their other dishes (I cease to remember them). Unfortunately my wife had that experience of disappointment when she ordered fish fry. They served her two small fish fillets...almost the size of fish sticks. I'm not kidding. We expected more (we're in Wisconsin for crying out loud!) or at least all you can eat fish. My wife who is petite for an average women wished she had more fish...considering this it will probably not satisfy most people who order this.
Their beers are okay. Not amazing but not bad. They do have a wide selection to choose from which I appreciate. Their Harvest Moon - a wild rice ale - left the biggest impression on me among the rest of the beers. I did enjoy this and would order it again.
Overall - I'll probably stick with the pubs in Madison, WI. But if family and friends are over and we want to eat at a place close by, Grumpy Troll may be the choice.
