Visited the brewery back in 2009.

It made for a fun little side-visit in-between the tour of the old Huber (now-Minhas) Brewery in Monroe and the nearby New Glarus brewery.

The tour itself was fun if a bit perfunctory; No brewing or packaging operations were taking place on my visit -- unlike at the other two, nearby breweries. It was really just a spin through the building and grounds/beer garden (very nice beer garden with live music!) along with a couple of small samples served in itty-bitty logo-printed "mugs" -- tasting glasses the size of shot glasses! Not bad for $3 (or whatever nominal fee I paid), but as Capital had for years been participating in a significant program of alternating proprietorship with Stevens Point Brewing, I really wish that I had asked a little about that arrangement -- it would've been much more educational for me in the long run.

Capital is a solid brewery, and I will always enjoy re-visiting their brands.

Visited the brewery and did the tour. It was very fun and informative. During the tour sampling occurred, which was different from any other tour. I liked how they explained the ingredients on the beers they sampled and taught the guests how to examine their brews. The brew master gave the tour and he knew his stuff. Afterwards there is a tasting room and Bier Stube. The gift shop is directly adjacent to the bar. Tours were $5 and included 3 samples and a sample glass.

I've been to Capital's beer garden a couple of times while I've been in the area, and I've come to the conclusion that IF you happen to be in area already with a large group of ppl & and a couple of dogs looking for a place to enjoy some carryout in an outdoor setting w some average draft beer, this is your place. otherwise, there are better spaces/venues and definitely better beers on tap to be had in the Madison area.

big space: twenty-five or so long picnic tables, w. individual chairs sprinkled along the perimeter, pretty descent stage to anchor one of the sides. haven't been, but they offer concerts/shows on Thursday & Friday nights. service consists of beer tenders behind an long bar, pleasant enough - but nothing special. when we visited there were 6 or so capital brews on tap w. a small local brewery on two guest taps.
