Stop #224 on my brewery tour of the world.

25 minutes or so from Madison. Visited on a Thursday evening in early August - wonderful Wisconsin summer weather.

I was on my phone headset dealing with business pretty much the entire time so I lost a bit of focus (spoke low and sat outside away from others).

Pole barn facility with medium size tasking room and nice outdoor patio with lots of grassy area for youngsters to run around. Plenty of hops growing on their hop vines out back.

The bartender set me up with the full sampler, brought it out to me, and even came back to pick up the empties.

All beers were solid but the bourbon brown stood out. Just enough bourbon flavor to balance with the lighter brown style (as opposed to the usual imperial stout). Also served a sample of root beer which was a nice finish at the end.

A definite stop if you ever find yourself traveling from Milwaukee to Madison.

An awsome outdoor facility. Great on site parking. Several options with many one offs. Very comfortable bar. No giftshop. Awesone, old dog. Worth the visit.

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.
