A very good brewpub in a nice location. Outside is brick- older building. Downstairs is nice family friendly restaurant with bar. Upstairs is more of simple drinking bar room.

Beers are all solid - several easy drinking beers and a couple big beers (a belgian and a barrel aged stout). Something for everyone - no flaws.

Food was simple but solid. Black bean dip rocked. Decent sandwiches - good bread.

Located in a small town - right near a nice biking trail. A great park is close, plus a ski area.

A great choice for weekend getaway or as part of a pub run.

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.
