The Malt House was recommended to Emily and I by the friendly bartender at Brasserie V, Jon.

We are glad we made the stop. We have driven by the Malt House numerous times on our way out of Madison, as we travel on the 151 often. Never would have guessed that they would have such a great selection.

I had the Boon Kriek on tap and Emily the NG Cranbic, which I had never had before and thought was awesome! We ended up switching because she liked the Kriek better than the Cranbic, and vice versa.

The tap selection is extensive, and wide ranging. The bottle list is very nice, with a big profile of different styles and formats of beers. This will be a must stop for Emily and I in the future, and am glad to have had it recommended to us.

a true midwestern vibe...right on East Wash, and totally unexpected...but inside, it is a glorious watering hole

Stopped here on Friday with a group of 7, sat at some tables in a chill corner. For a place that was as packed as it was, it was pretty damn relaxing. Craft beers and craft cocktails, there was something for everyone in our group. No food served here but I did see a few people bring food in and even saw a pizza delivered to a group sitting at the bar. Will definitely stop here every time we are in Madison.
