Stopped in for brunch after the Great Taste, and they had some interesting guest taps from breweries in central WI that weren't at the fest. Brunch was pretty good too, so that was a plus. Short ribs and grits with an egg on top was the perfect thing to soak up remnants from the fest.

From the outside the building is unassuming, a funky abstract mural adds character to the small outdoor side patio.
Once inside the front door, you walk through a room of tables and booths, and the bar is through some doors to the right.
There was probably a side entrance to the bar that I missed, for future reference. The place had a neighborhood brewpub vibe, a few large groups were gathered in the dining area.

The beers were decent, the IPL and APA were good but the Berliner had a chlorine off note. Guest drafts from Bare Bones and Lion's Tail were better. They had a full bar and cocktail menu as well.

Service was adequate, not chatty but nice enough. Had an empty glass at the bar a couple times, but not for long.

Overall it was a good experience, and i'd return to eat here again and try some different beers.

The Next Door Brewery was my latest stop in Madison. This was a “new to me” place even though they told me they have been open three years. Thanks to BA for the point in the right direction.

I liked this neighborhood, it looks like it is on the rise with some rehabbed housing, new restaurants, shops, etc.

Next Door has a small parking lot, I think you could also easily park on the local side streets.

There is a nice sized room as you enter. There is also another dining area off to your right. They have some really cool communal tables.

The bar area is straight ahead. The bar has 3 sections and seats about 20. There are also some smaller tables in the bar area and the tanks are also on display.

Lots of wood in the decor which makes it kind of dark. There are some glass block and regular windows that lighten it up a bit.

Strategically located TVs to catch games. Indy rock for the soundtrack

Service was friendly and accommodating. I counted 10 house beers on tap.

I liked the APA and the really solid Oktoberfest I had.

The food menu is not huge but has some really good options. My family enjoyed the wings, curds, burgers, subs, salads and chicken sandwiches. We were satisfied and stuffed and still had food left to take home.

I would have no problem returning!

Meh, this is a smaller place, the athmosphere and beers were so so...nothing special...in a town with multiple quality options..this place was not terrible but not super impressive...better options in town...but would just about work in a pinch

Awesome atmosphere with knowledgeable and friending bar staff! The beer was amazing and they had 11 different options on tap. Food menu was great and the fried Munster chees curds were to die for! Can't wait to make it back!

Small but very cool new ( relatively ) brewery/restaurant. Some top notch beers, excellent food. I hate to say it but their food may surpass their beer for me at this point. Their goat cheese fried cheese curds are decadent and delicious and pair nicely with the sevex english strong ale. Again, all their beers are "good" although I wouldn't call any "great". The food is the main get here, but the managment seems ambitious and they are always hyping new beer styles and offerings so "great" could be right around the corner for them.
