They usually have about 3 interesting taps, and a pretty decent packaged section. Also, good coffee and great cookies.

Barriques offers about 60 different styles of microbrews, with about half from Wisconsin and half from other parts of the country.

A=This last visit I only went to check out their beer assortment, but it is a cozy cafe atmosphere for coffee, soups, etc....

Q=Their assortment of quality microbrews include New Glarus, Lake Louie, Lakefront, and Ale Asylum, to name a few, but also Lagunitas, Three Floyds, etc....

S=No one asked me if they could help me...that said, their beer selection was pretty easy to see.

S=Very nice...about 60 microbrews, all kept singles available.

V-6-packs were typically in the $8.99-$9.99 range, typical for Madison.

I have a friend who lives out past this place on McKee and a few clients that bring me to that area about 10 minutes from dowtown quite a bit.

Its in a mini upscale strip that includes a nice restaurant and a cool family owned bakery (and a subway). This Barriques version is my favorite. It has great coffee, really awesome lunch options, a bunch of wine, condiments and general schwag, and a few overflowing coolers of beer.

This place sticks out on the west side to me. Its always a cool relaxed atmosphere and is never overcrowded. Its just a terrific place to come grab a bite, a cup of coffee, and a few quality beers to go.

I dont use service for beer shopping usually but the employees are very pleasant to interact with. It's a cool place for sure and most of the staff seems to reflect that atmosphere.

Not a huge beer selection but without a doubt noteworthy. Decent singles/bombers collection with a handful of locals and randoms. Two Brothers 2004 Wheat Wine is available here, above average rogue selection, a few of the sprecher 750s, new glarus 750s, three floyds bombers. All the local goods available in 6 packs, dark horse 6 packs, a handful of good bells and founders, a few jolly pumpkin beers available in 6 packs and 750s, lots of sierra nevada and lagunitas. No macro of any sort I dont think, pretty well focused on good, mostly domestic, micros.

As mentioned, I really enjoy this place as a lunch stop. Great coffee, though I like to see a little more variety. Fair Trade and Organic offerings usually. Well made and quality sandwiches with good fresh sides. Great scones for the morning stop. No complaints to date.
