vibe: 4.5 | quality: 4.5 | service: 4 | selection: 4 | food: 4 | $$

Was brought here by some locals while be toured around the capital prior to a job interview the next day. The fact that we went to a brew pub was a dangerous choice for me. Though I did manage to behave myself I must admit I rather enjoyed this place. It had the nice feel of an old brick brew house. Hell we got to watch them make beer while we ate, which as far as the brew pubs I've gone to, I've almost never seen that. The quality of the place in general was outstanding, it was the middle of the week and the place was packed. The service was pretty good, the waitress knew enough about beer to be able to assist some in the party with the choices, but as far as overall beer knowledge she didn't tell me anything about the beers that I couldn't have guessed from the style. No knock on her, but sometimes you like to know the insight. The selection was as far as I was paying attention just their brews, but they seemed to have at least 10 or more on tap which is pretty damn good for a brew pub. I ate a rather unhealthy bratwurst burger (c'mon, I'm almost never in Wisconsin) that was absolutely amazing, I don't know how the others' food was but it was pretty damn good to me. They even had a vegan menu...surprising for Wisconsin I know. I would definitely stop here again if i was in the area.
