Brickhouse is the best bar on the UW Campus (it's a block south of State Street, on the corner of Gorham and Broom) if you are looking for quality brews and want to avoid the "noise" of college bars. Brickhouse is also a BBQ restaurant with a very diverse, succulent menu. The Mac and Cheese is to die for, and their BBQ sauces have a unique character to them compared to most "up north" BBQ joints (it's less thick-mapley than most other places I have been to).

Selection is where Brickhouse stands out. They have two taplines that house something like 30-40 beers that rotate throughout the season. About half the taps tend to be Wisconsin microbrews, but the other 10 are always interesting finds. From Breakfast Stout to Oak Aged Dragon's Milk to Double Trouble to Blackout Stout, there's always a delicious midwest beer on tap. Can't wait for Winter to kick in, when they get more stouts and a few RIS's on tap!

This is my go to place when I can't convince my friends to make the trek over to the Malt House (which is way off campus)
