I stopped by the bier garten a few times over the Summer to grab a drink with my sister and some of her friends. The bier garten is a nice place to visit on nice Summer day. There are probably two dozen picnic benches for people to sit in. The benches are surrounded by bushes and trees that cover up the surrounding buildings around the brewery.

I'm honestly not a huge Capital Brewery fan as far as beer goes. I picked up the U.S. Pale Ale and the Island Wheat. Both were good, but nothing spectacular. Both sessionable beers, but lacking in flavor in my opinion. At least they have a decent selection of beer for people to chose from.

The service was average, just employees standing behind the counter to serve you your beer. Since there is no food offering it's a bit tough to rate the service beyond average.

Note on the vibe - I was only inside due to the 15 degree weather outside. I see very clearly that they have a really nice looking beer garden. I just think the over all atmosphere is lacking on the inside. The hallway to the tap room however is pretty neat because it shows the massive amount of awards they've acquired through the years.

Good beer, but I've never had anything here that amazes me.

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.
