Capital Brewery (est. 1984) has won over 240 medals and specializes in traditional German style lagers, with a few ales for balance. It distributes all over Wisconsin and parts of MN, IL, and IA. It is conveniently located in downtown Middleton, WI. During the summer season, the Bier Garten (a.k.a. ‘Middleton’s Backyard’) offers live music and food vendors several days of the week. With a performance stage, waterproof tent, bar and picnic tables, it can accommodate up to 1,200 people. An adjacent Beer Patio can accommodate 50 to 70 people, and plenty of on and off street parking is available. The Bier Stube and Grain Room is open to the public in the fall and winter season and includes a century old Brunswick back bar. Capital also offers tours, allowing guests to learn about the company, how the beer is made, and to sample a variety of award winning brews – or take a self-guided Tasting Tour and sample a flight of 6 beers. Visitors can ride the free Middleton Trolley (April – Nov).
