German style outdoor bier garten that's located in downtown Middleton. They only serve beer that's brewed onsite but always have a wide selection. During the summer they often have live bands with a nominal, if any, cover charge. This is a dog and family friendly establishment. Do note, they do not serve food. However, food trucks have been known to... More

There was ample outdoor seating to enjoy the fall weather and a tasting. Decided to do the guided tour, led by Adam. The tour was small, they do not do their own bottling on site, only kegs. However, the tour was very informative. Adam knew his stuff and did an excellent job answering questions. We were happy we decided to... More

A must do on a weekend in the Madison area. Great beer garden complete with entertainment and Capital beer (some of the best in the Midwest).

We made it for the tour only. Went on Sunday last tour of the day so not much production wise was going on. Tour was $7 and we received a nice pint glass and 4 -5 samples. Beir garden was very nice.

I've always enjoyed Capital beers. On Friday evenings during summer, they open their outdoor beer garden and have live music. It's a great time when the weather is right. They pour a number of their beers outside. The only issue was when we were there some of their more summery beers were not pouring well (read: lots of foam). You'd... More

We dropped into this place during a recent friends weekend. We enjoyed several varieties of craft beers in their outdoor patio. They had live music and a very festive atmosphere. It was very fun for a summer Friday evening.

The brewery seemed more industrial than others. Still was fun. Not my favorite style of beer and the tour was quick. Beer garden was fun however with live music and beer on tap.

They offer tours on various day which are informative but the best part if their outdoor bar. Some days they have food carts and live music which adds to the great atmosphere.

Went in there on a Friday night expecting see a variety of beer available. It's a brewery, right? Seems logical. A small bar area was open with a one-man band playing, but they offered just 4 IPAs and two dark beers. I like all kinds of beers, but why would they only offer essentially two types of beer? My wife... More

Love the Beer-traditional German style lagers and now American style ales, aged barrels editions and for the hoppy lovers, IPAS. Bier stube is inviting, the Gift Haus has a great selection of gift ideas. The brewery tour is worth it! A Wisconsin tradition for Friday night outside during the summer time in the Bier Garten! Partial to the brewers in... More
