I stopped at Karben4 recently, the newest brewpub in Madison and the beer was pretty good. They are having their grand opening on Saturday and are located in Ale Asylum's old building.
I was looking forward to stopping in there when they open. What did you have and how was it?
I went to their soft opening a few weeks back. They had a (mildly) smoked porter and Rye APA that were both solid and an amber that was okay. Those will be their staple beers along with a session ale and an Irish ale. Their seasonal will be a rotating IPA, and the first one is a Black IPA that comes out tomorrow. The place has a different feel than the old Ale Asylum - they did a nice job with it. Speaking of Ale Asylum - they've been putting out limited edition hoppy beers of their own. I had an IPA a few weeks back that was tasty.
Long as I'm here:
The other newer Madison brewpubs - One Barrel and House of Brews are okay. Vintage continues to make great beers and now can be found all over the Milwaukee market.
Both Kenosha Brewpubs - Public Craft and Rustic Road were average at best and need a little time to get the process down as they seemed a little "home-brewy"
Sweet Mullets in Oconomowoc is quickly becoming my favorite in the Milwaukee area.
