A small taproom connected to Trixie's Liquor Store. There is a bar and some high top tables for seating. The taps are constantly changing so quality is somewhat hard to judge. Service was friendly and helpful. The selection is excellent with 18 beers on tap that you can drink there or take out in crowlers or growlers. I will go back the next time I visit Madison.

I don't live in Madison but we were visiting for the weekend.

The Vibe was pretty good. There was one guy who was serving us and he knew quite a bit about the 20 or so beers they had on tap (including 1 nitro).

We started with 2 small free tastes, and 1 free 5 Oz glass of Oatmeal Stout (because it is summer and they wanted to get rid of the keg, not because it was bad). The 2 free tastes were their standard practice, but it really wasn't enough. I was looking at the board and wasn't decided yet and almost bought a growler of something I didn't taste. I had brought in two 64 Oz growlers to be filled, so I obviously was going to get some.

The Quality was very good. The only very small issue I had was that while we were in there, two other people came in and the one guy was making us wait while he was helping them.

Service was outstanding! We were going to get a growler of the Oatmeal Stout, but the keg emptied while filling it. He gave us a free 5 Oz glass of it while we were there. After the Oatmeal Stout was gone they had the keg changed within a couple minutes.

Selection was very good as well. They have IPAs, wheat beers, Belgians, stouts, porters, etc.

I would highly recommended Growlers to Go-Go to anyone who likes beer and is in the Madison area.

Stopped in here recently after hearing they were already open next door to Trixie's.
Cool idea for a bar, sort of a supporting concept for the liquor store next door.
They had the flatscreen beer menus up behind the bar, and one in the store by the counter.

The space is going for a vintage look, but the details seemed a little rushed. Bare bones, some turquoise accents and a mermaid theme. Drop ceiling, some tables and front windows with a view of the parking lot. Restroom wasn't the cleanest, there was also a hole smashed in the drywall to the water main access.

Service was fine, there was a pretty big crowd in the small space so we didn't really linger.

Selection was good, lots of options with realtime updates of keg levels and serving sizes.
Lots of Titletown, and a DFH feature for craft beer week included 8 or so taps. Not a lot of obscure stuff, but worth a stop to see what the selection of the moment is.
