This was my first visit since they moved to their new location. Much larger and beer/food quality has remained high. Nice patio.

Visited the Tasting Room around 09:30 on Friday night. It was busy, but there was sufficient space at the bar. Had the Big LIck Stout and the Hopalicious beers and the buffalo chicken pizza with two side salads. The service was quick and the food delicious. This is one of our favorite stops in Madison. The atmosphere is very unique... More

We didn't eat. We sat at the bar just ordered a flight of beer (6 5oz pours for $15). We thought about ordering two so we could taste everything on tap, but that would have been a lot of beer. The atmosphere was fun, you could sit outside. Loved the beer (my husband like the hefeweizen - unshadowed and abbey... More

We shared the 6 beer sampler, which worked out fine as the servings were generous (5 oz?). They have so many different beers to choose from - all were excellent. Our server was great at guiding us to beer choices. The food menu was a bit limited, but everything we tried was good as well. The facility itself is amazing.... More

My wife and I brought our son and his wife to Ale Asylum for his birthday. I drive past five days per week on the way to and from the office and have always wanted to stop. He chose this site from many craft brew pubs and I'm happy he did. The atmosphere inside is very clean and open, although... More

Stopped by for lunch with a buddy who loves their beer. The beer was excellent, especially the Ambergeddon, a nutty brown ale with fairy amount of hoppiness. The food menu didn't impress - your typical appetizers, a couple of salads, an assortment of 10" pizzas and just a few sandwiches. Sandwiches and pizzas were priced $10-$12. Seating is available inside... More

I like Brew Hauses, Microbrews, etc. Decided to check this one out. Very nice modern facility. The staff was very freindly, with Mary leading the way. Met one of the owners. Fun time. The beer was very good. I have a flight and several samples and can honestly state that any of the ones I tried were good. I did... More

The beer (especially the one I had - Unshadowed) was yummy. Everyone in our party loved their choice. The appetizers were scrumptious. The bread cheese, which actually isn't bread at all but fried cheese served with honey, homemade raspberry jam and glazed walnuts was exceptionally tasty. Our waitress went out of her way to make sure we were satisfied with... More

Stop here by myself to get some t-shirts and glasses for the family members that love this beer! The bartender was very nice and let me taste whatever I wanted until I decided I want to have. We will definitely be coming back again

Nice microbrewery near Dane County Airport. Enjoyed the Good Digger and the hummus/veggie plate. Nice outdoor area. Make sure you visit the upstairs lounge.
