Thought about checking our Working Draft this trip, since I haven't been there yet.  Checked their tap list online, and they have 6 IPAs  :rolleyes:  a Vienna Lager and a Grisette

pass

Honestly not sure about any of the new breweries.

Barley Pop Tap & Shop on Atwood is good for draft variety, there's a 2nd location on the square, BarleyPop Live.

I'll probably try to check out the one downtown, although there are already quite a few spots with 30+ taps in the area.

Maybe I'm just too old for new things.

Old Fashioned is curmudgeon-friendly. :bakes: BarleyPop on Atwood was quiet and had a smart tap list when I went a year or 2 ago.

You'd probably hate Working Draft, when we went every 3rd seat was a dog/baby/stroller, and it was SRO in the place. They had a good Kolsch and hoppy lager when I went though.

Good, overall.  Started with a heffe from one of the Milwaukee breweries that wasn't very good, but then I had a German pils, a Scottish ale, and a stout from central waters (one I hadn't hea.rd of before).

Tonight I hit up hopcat for happy hour.  1\2 price apps, 1.50 off beers, and 5.00 off burgers.

Started with an order of Vladimir poutine and an ale asylum heffe ... then a potosi pil s with a cowboy burger ... finished with a plaid panther scotch ale.
 
Then I went to cask & ale for a flight of 3 scotches, and then a 2 oz. pour of Octomore 7.1

... a stout from central waters (one I hadn't heard of before).

Agreeable Interlude was the name.  8.9% ABV imperial stout that is supposedly the base beer for the barrel-aged stouts.  Good stuff.

Stopped in Madison on the way up to Beaver Dam on Friday. Had Pel'meni at Paul's.  Hit the spot.  First time up there since they moved a few years back. 

Visited Working Draft.  Really enjoyed the space.  They had 6 different lagers on.  All were top notch.  My favorites were the Helles and French Pilsner.  Wife got the weird kettle sour thing with chocolate and strawberry. It was a lot better than it should have been.  Hazy IPA was also good.

Nice! Met Warriorsoul there a year or two ago and the beer was good, had an IPL, IIRC.

Young Blood Beer company just opened up a couple of weeks ago. Location would have been great for the Great Taste, right down King St. from Tipsy Cow. Brewer from Door County/Hacienda. So far almost exclusively Pale ales(4) and Saisons(3) and one low abv pastry stout collab with 1840 out of Milwaukee.

:o

how does this work when head brewers change over.. does he own the recipes and get to take them to the new spot?  or are they property of the brewery and stay at Hacienda?

I cant speak to him being the head brewer or not so I don't know if it was a big change for DC/H.

Good to know this, thanks for the heads up! :cheers:

Typically brewers don't have ownership of recipes, but they are free to loosely interpret under a different name. I think as long as it's not identical. Think "Kalamazoo Hopsoulution" instead of Bells Two Hearted.

Yep. When George left Pump Station to start Druthers, Pump Station kept the multi-GABF award winning Kick-Ass Brown recipe.  His first beer at Druthers was "Fist of Karma" Brown Ale, described on the beer menu as "This brown ale really kicks ass with a blend of..."
