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

After going to Ale Asylum while in Madison we made our way to Great Dane to have some more brews and some food.

The first thing I noticed was the size of this establishment, it was a big bar/brewpub. And it was around 2pm on Saturday and this place was packed (yet we still were seated immediately). Our server was very friendly (and knowledgeable) making small talk and joking about my BA friend and my wife leaving right away when we got to our seats (they went to the powder room). The menu was big (almost too much to choose from) and the beer selection was great. It appears that they have 9 year round brews and they had 7 other "seasonal" brews.

We had some chow, nothing special to note, and had some brews (see my reviews in the next few days as I took notes and brought some home).

The only thing that I was upset about was the growler I purchased. They had some really cool ones on display and when they brought ours out they were just generic ones and we came to find the "nicer" ones were $35.

Side note our server let us know which beers would last a few days in the growler as we wanted some that were hand drawn and would have not made the trip back to Point...way to have well trained staff!!!
