Stop #220 on my world brewery tour.

Solo visit around 7 on a Wednesday in early August. Entered directly into the spacious beer garden where I spent my entire visit.

Large bar spanning the width of the beer garden. I imagine this is good when the place is crowded during events.

I'm not a big drinker of Capital beers to begin with and the beer list seemed like their standard offerings. Nothing jumped out at me as special or seasonal so I went with the weiss in a clear plastic cup (with a $3 option to upgrade to glass). $4 for the beer with a $1 tip. I think it was 16 or 20 oz.

The beer garden with had a ton of large wooden tables and I was fortunate to find a plastic patio chair with a back to sip my brew and people watch.

No food offered here and many people had their own food and dogs on leashes. They say no carry in beverages but I saw people drinking soda that they appeared to have brought in themselves.

While the location seems like suburban Madison, there is a quaint village area around the corner and the town of Middleron does have a bit of historic charm along with the mega mart and upscale chain dining options close by.

A good choice if you have a large group of people, want to be outside, or there is a special summer event going on.

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.
