If you are in Madison for the weekend, be sure to schedule a tour and tasting at Capital Brewery. Generous tasting and souvenir pint glass included with the $7 tour price, as well as great insight into the craft brewing industry.

Unique place to try a few of the Capital Brewery beers. Sometimes they have bands playing outside and other times it is just the beer garden. It would get 5 stars expect for the fact the price of their beers is getting a bit expensive....More

Decided to visit this brewery and we were glad we did. Very nice outside bar with a huge patio, entertainment and a food truck to boot.
