Visited on a Monday around dinner time. Sat at the bar. Not very crowded. Would definitely visit again.

A - Adult vibe but looked to be kid friendly.

Q - A glass washer.

S - Great service, attention from multiple folks.

S – A nice selection, but nothing too out of the ordinary.

F – Smoked chicken leg appetizer was a little disappointing, nice and smokey, but not fall off the bone done.

Right on the main drag in Hudson, Older all brick building with a newer decor inside very clean when you walk you have tables for seating or sit at the bar. Been here several times always sit at the bar. The bartenders are very attentive and knowledgeable about what they serve, always have a decent tap list, and are able to sample many or do flights, Burger and fries are great., Will also fill growlers to go.

This place absolutely blew my mind. Not only did they serve the best cheese curds I've ever had in my life (with a great blueberry BBQ sauce), their burger is also one of the top 3 best I've ever had in my life and the beer selection is awesome. Had the Hop Whoppin' by O'so Brewing on nitro and the pour was amazing and the bartender had extensive knowledge about everything he sold. Great place, will 100% be back whenever I make it back to the area.

There was a special New Glarus tasting for the night in question and we finally bit the bullet and organized this impromptu trip. The gastropub opened in 2013 and has been getting rave reviews for their farm-to-table fine dining and excellent wine and beer list. The building it is located in was built in 1875 and boasts many different styles of solid brick walls and old architectural features. They apparently plan on expanding into the rest of the building to include a night club and more over time, which should be interesting. They obviously took great care in renovation, showcasing much of the old building while updating it for a comfortable dining and drinking experience.

We were smart enough to make reservations for a Saturday night (we overheard walk-ins being told about a very long wait for dinner) and were quickly seated near the bar in a wooden booth. We took advantage of the special New Glarus tasters they were offering: Belgian Red, Raspberry Tart, Serendipity, and Strawberry Rhubarb--Oh My! We shared a cheese-heavy charcuterie board (this is Wisconsin after all!) that mostly paired well with our sweet and tart beers. Unable to decide on main dishes, my wife and I shared two of them. The Wild Boar was perfectly cooked with a light smoky char on the outside served with the lightest pillowy gnocchi I've ever had, all brought together with a blue cheese sauce and raspberry demi. The Quatre et Trois was an unusual combination of duck, veal, pork and chicken all formed into a flavorful and crumbly block atop a green bed of spinach, faro, quinoa and wheat berries. Aesthetically that one was not as amazing, but the flavors were stellar! Full to bursting, we took home a dessert of chocolate banana bread for later.

I would highly recommend the Stone Tap to anyone who considers themselves a foodie or loves craft beers. The beer list of taps and bottles was extensive with some items like Dogfish Head that we can't get in Minnesota (all of those were clearly marked so we could be sure to take advantage of the new options!)

Clearly, I had a very positive experience at Stone Tap. Our server was one of the best servers I've had in recent memory. Helpful, attentive, not overbearing, and very nice. Stone Tap has a really nice atmosphere with a great selection of taps. You can usually find New Glarus, FFF, Dave's Brewfarm and Ale Asylum on tap. Only had the fries, but they were damn good. Another bonus, is they let you do flights in any quantity on any taps, for no extra charge. They give you 5oz pours. If the beer would have been a pint, they charge you about 1/3; if it would have been 10oz, they charge you 1/2. Brilliant. I don't know why more places don't do this.
