The beer at Toppling Goliath lives up to the hype. I especially liked the Golden Nugget. What let us down was the taproom. We tried to sit outside but we're unable to die to all the bees.

It was a rainy day so we went Decorah to visit the taproom. Besides the good beer the staff was welcoming and informative about the beer. We were able to share beer experiences with a number of people at the taproom. Well worth the stop....More

This place is world-rebound, and so we had to stop and taste what beers were on tap. Note: No food served here, but it is okay to bring a picnic or order delivery from Decorah's lovely restaurants. Friendly staff!

It was raining so we didn't get to enjoy the patio, but we had a great time tasting the local brew. My favorite was Dorothy's New World lager.

On the north side of Decorah and halfway up the hill is this brewery. Lots of good beers meaning plenty of selection to find the one just right for you! I thought Dorothy was the best.

I love TG beer. I was so excited to visit the tap room on my trip to Decorah IA. But the service was horrible. I wasn't acknowledged at all when I came in. Young woman bartender passed right by me 5 times and not even...More
