Rating: 4.25
Location: Madison, WI
Founded: 1994
Last visited: July 2017

The original location opened in 1994, and now they’ve expanded to five locations in the area. We visited the Fitchburg and Hilldale locations. Both were excellent.

BEER:
Wild Pitch Wit (4.00) – Fruity, light body, no bitterness, great example of the style.
Crop Circle Wheat (4.50) – Traditional hefeweizen, clove flavor prominent, as if it were brewed in Germany.
Märzen (3.75) – Nice, roasted flavor, more like a “lite” Märzen.
Maibock (4.25) – Big body, malt flavor, sweetness from malt very evident.
Black Earth Porter (cask) (4.75) – Bold, roasted malt flavor, heavy coffee flavor, great example of the style.
John Stoner’s Oatmeal Stout (nitro) (4.50) – Rich, roasted flavor, full coffee overtones.
Peck’s Pilsner (4.25) – Full-bodied and robust; big mouthfeel and nicely balanced with Saaz hops.
Verrückte Stadt German Pils (4.25) – Crisp, straw-colored pilsner; lightly hopped; wonderful malty character.
Landmark Lite (NR) – Light body, refreshing, not like most “lite” beers. Lawnmower beer.
Old Glory American Pale Ale (NR) – Great balance of malts and bitterness, complex mix of malts.

FOOD:
Try the Webster Street Chicken Salad, filled with mixed greens, roasted chicken, apples, dried cranberries, walnuts and gorgonzola cheese; and the Grilled Chicken Caesar Wrap, filled with fresh chopped romaine, warm grilled chicken, tossed in Caesar dressing wrapped in a garden vegetable tortilla. Both great choices.
