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.

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.
