The selection at the Sugar Maple is second to none, and the best part about it is, how affordable the taps are. Where else can you get an 8 oz pour of World Wide Stout for under ten dollars? Well under ten dollars. Also had some great beers from Bells, including the Batch 10000 for under 8 dollars, Founders Backwoods Bastard for around the same price. Over 40 taps, and a great bottle selection as well. And if you're fix'n for a glass of whiskey, they have a phenomenal selection of our distilled friends as well!

We went in the middle of the afternoon and had entire (huge) bar to ourselves. Cool classic rock on the radio and a most informative friendly barkeep. Seating on the sides if you don't want a bar stool. And 30 taps from around Wisconsin, (including the # 1,3,and 6 highest rated Wisconsin beers)and the country, 4 bottles and one can. Full service liquor bar as well as wine. Will definitely go back!

Always busy, great beer selection. Nearly impossible to get service, bartenders have ignored me and there isn't a wait staff to bring drinks to your seats. Its also always too loud to hold a conversation.

Awesome. Just awesome. Amazing selection of craft beers on tap, knowledgeable staff that is uber friendly and well versed on their selections and how things work as well as what other options are around them. On my trip here the bartender took me downstairs to see the inner workings of the tap system (awesome) and then recommended a fantastic taqueria around the corner to grab some food. 2 flights later I was so happy with the decision to come here.

Great beer selection. Lot of hipsterness going on. Not as good as Roman's or Burnhearts (IMHO), but close.
