Nice eatery

My husband and I tried this place out on a Wednesday at lunch time. We really liked how many beers they had on tap and the variety of countries represented. You can get small 2.5 ounce mugs of beers so you can try several interesting ones for fun. My Reuben and my husband's burger were pretty good... read more

The atmosphere is cozy but more important the food is outstanding. Have been there 3 times and it never disappoints. The bartender even remembered us. That's all you want is to feel special and of course the food has to be good which it is. Staff are friendly and helpful. Great beer and wine selection. My husband and I took... More

Terrific little restaurant. Imaginative menu and good service. Don't miss the moules frites. If your not a big mussels person you still should try the French fries. While this place Is know very a massive beer selection they have a nice selection of wines by the glass. Finally, it's a very good value.

The beer selection was great!! Many European options Belgians, Tripels, etc. They had closed kitchen when we got there but offered us chips. The bartender seemed to know his beer stuff and was very friendly. The walls had several posters of beer related items which I thought were cool.The bathroom was very clean also. If I'm back in Madison I... More

The incredible beer selection at Brasserie V likely draws many in, but the food and atmosphere ought to keep them coming back. I was immediately impressed by the broad selection of beers on tap, as well as bottle selection in their cellar. As I began to peruse the menu I realized that there was more to this place than I...

Starts with ~300 beers on tap and in bottle. And with almost none of them being the mundane microbrews (really... doesn't every microbrew's EPA taste the same, just like all american light beers taste the same?), they have a startling array of flavors and styles. I had a a India Pale... Lager. They offer tasting sized glasses to make sampling... More

We made up for a lackluster dinner at Harvest with a night out at this fun Belgian spot. I loved their cheese plate, which allowed this out of town gal to sample some of the best. Our entrees were great, and free flowing fun beers. They even had gluten free beer and gluten free bread, which was a lovely surprise.... More

We had a late dinner here with another couple. We had drinks at the bar. They had a very extensive menu of wines, drinks, and tap beers. Very impressive! We moved to our table. After an explanation of the specials, we ordered meals ranging from salads, to mussels, and of course, their famous frites. All of the food was good.... More
