We believe in using ingredients only when they make sense to the overall experience we are trying to share, regardless of style guidelines or popular trends.  Above all, we require our brews to be balanced.  When you are spending your hard-earned money on a pint you shouldn't have to fight through a rough spot in the flavor profile to get to the good part.  It should all be the good part.

Madison’s first and only Nano-Brewery, located at the vibrant Schenks Corner/Atwood Avenue intersection. What used to be the old neighborhood grocery store is now a neighborhood pub. Webrew unique beers, one barrel at a time, and serve them for a limited time. Plus we offer wines, hard ciders, and partner with local purveyors for delicious eats. In fact, the only thing we don’t offer are the answers to life’s greatest questions…although some say they can be found at the bottom of a glass!!
