Checked this place out with spointon on 5/10.

The place itself was really modern looking with bright colors on the wall and very dim lighting with candles on the tables. It really looked "too new" and didn't have a cool vibe like many rustic looking places. The service was good at first, the bartender came to our tables and we ordered drinks. He was able to describe the beers and was also later helpful with giving Scott some advice on places in the area to visit. The beer itself was decent, nothing to get excited about. We didn't try food but it looked like they just had pre-made pizzas and an oven to cook them in. I wouldn't really go back here unless there was some really good reason to as it just wasn't that great IMO.

Struck me as Surly light. A nice big facility but it there's no real sense of character. They have quite a few beers on tap but they become a bit samey. Few stand out as superlative. Definitely a solid place to visit if in Madison but not a destination.
