If there's one thing that makes me want to live in Madison, it's the Great Dane. Good beer (and plenty of it) at good prices with good food in a cool place. The first time I went, I didn't try any of their beers because I was sick, but this time, I tried the Watermelon Wheat, the Black Earth Porter, the cask-conditioned Extra Pale Ale, and the Scotch ale, all of which were delicious, especially the porter and the Extra Pale. Our waiter was a little slow at times but very friendly, and the food was a notch above standard pub food - I had the Great Dane burger with artichoke dip and also tried the fried walleye and the hummus plate, all of which were quite good. The atmosphere is pleasant, smoke-free, a little boisterous but still family-friendly, with a cool cellar area. Overall, a very enjoyable beer servery with fresh brews that were noticeably more gutsy and robust than what you'd normally get at a brewpub. Highly recommended.
