Greg Long shows us a whole new world of brewpubs in Madison, WI, with details on classic establishments as well as the new kids on the block. Highlights include a beer CSA, experimental brews, and some very mixed food reviews.
Madison, Wisconsin is a beer-loving city. It is home to the Great Taste of the Midwest, one of the nation’s largest beer festivals, and the wildly popular Madison Craft Beer Week is celebrated every May. The city has always had at least one local brewery, with the exception of the Dark Ages in the 1970s, and in recent years a new wave of tap rooms has sprung up throughout town, catering to everyone from the traditional lager lovers to extreme hop heads.
Listed … are six local breweries, owned and operated in Madison, that serve beer on premises. What connects them all is a love of a great pint.
