Off the highway, turn left at the first light (Road V), pass Road A, and turn right into onto Owen St. (Its an industrial park kind of area). The brewery is a large boxy warehouse building. You pass the "tin beersman" on the way from the lot. The tasting room is inside the front door on the right.

The room doesn't have much ambiance per se, but what it does have are super friendly people and an impressive tap selection for such a small operation. I think there were 6 or so regular beers on plus 2 specials -- Hop Whore and Oktoberfest. The Rocky's Revenge was a decent brown with a nice bourbon layer. The Oktoberfest was also nice, maybe a little more hop than I like (and definitely not as malty as Spaten which is my favorite, but not many are...).

Unfortunately we *just* missed the Spank Me which blew an hour before we arrived. Too bad. Sounded impressive.

This a great little place to hit on the way into Madison or Milwaukee. And a GREAT VALUE.

(note: No food. Although they do offer free pretzels, and some folks got pizza delivered to the brewery which seems like a good option for eating in this town).

I really dig this little spot in lake mills. The brewers gone wild series is absolutely thriving these days and I have nothing but positive things to say about it. Rob is getting creative again with barrels and doing some great adjunct beers as well. Nice place to grab a beer; the regulars are small town folks that are really friendly. They have no food, but you can bring food in just "no outside beverages" as the sign says in the bar and on the walkway to the entrance. It gets packed pretty easily when its the busy times like stopping by after work for a beer is a really busy time to go to Tyranena.

The tap room is small but provides a cozy warm atmosphere. During the warm months, the outdoor patio adjacent to the tap room is a nice relaxing spot to enjoy some beer. Only Tyranena beer is on tap from my experience. Always all of their year-round brews, a seasonal or two, and typically 1 or more of their brewer's gone wild beers of which many are barrel aged. The prices are very reasonable and the staff is always friendly. The tap room does not have food available but it is pet friendly. Live music most weekend evenings with no cover.

Love this place. It is clean, laid back and just flat out makes you feel comfortable. Quality is high - beer is fresh, glassware is clean and appropriate. The service is attentive without being overbearing. Pretzels and mustard is available at no charge - if you're hungary you can bring your own food in, use the grill out back or eat from a local food truck. Well worth the stop if you're on your way from MKE to Madison or vice versa.
