If you like beer-geeky, you'll like this place. It's kinda...geeky, in that it's not really the kind of location that screams "cool," or even "regular restaurant." BUT... the beer is GREAT, made right there, the food is good and a little quirky/geeky too, and if you go on Saturday at exactly 6pm, the brewer/owner will give you a tour of the beer making part. Again, kinda geeky, but cool.
I really like this venue. Nice to see this on the north side of Madison. Really close to the airport. Would be a nice hop skip and a jump to catch a beer right before you jet set off to vacation. Large amount of outdoor patio space for large friend get together's. Beer is great of course. The pizzas are actually pretty darn good. I got the veggie pizza and shared it with someone. The salsa and chips are a good appetizer there. I would highly recommend this place for a nice social place to meet friends and colleagues.
