stopped in with the dirtman on our way back from Effigy Mounds, I'd sampled a couple GT beers in the bottle but was looking forward to checking out the source in this eccentric Madison suburb

walked in and took a seat right in front of the door - so my perspective of the scene was limited save for my short walk to the privy, but what I did gather is that the GT is a pretty chill place with a population of both beer folks and townies, perhaps a bit generic but the interior was comfortable and the noise level conducive to conversation

beers on tap were chalked onto a blackboard above the bar, nice selection with some standards, seasonals, and a couple "snifter beers" - maybe ten in all, we both went with the bourbon barrel aged steinbier named Woody Stein - an excellent and very unique beer

service was good, one bartender was a bit impassive but performed all duties expected, while the other was a friendly chap who seemed genuinely concerned that we'd enjoyed our biers

unfortunately my impending departure and late hour of the day made for a short trip, but I'll be hoping to head back next time in Madison

Your standard small town vibe coupled with something of a tourist destination town on the outskirts of Madison. You're definitely amongst locals, including frequent packs of bicyclists and gruff harley riders. Staff is incredibly welcoming and the food - very much standard pub fare - and beer are decent.

What a great place. Biked here from Madison (it's only a block off the military ridge trail), and had a great lunch. Had the Trailside wheat and some frys at the bar while we waited for a table, and both were awesome. Had a burger with a brat on top for lunch that was really good, and my wife enjoyed her grilled salmon salad. They were pretty busy, but service was still good. Only tried two of their beers, but I will definitely go back again to try some more. Only complaint: they need more bicycle parking!

The beer is better than the food; and that is ok with me.
