Great Dane Brew Pub

Wisconsin Craft Brew Pubs-Great DaneI was fortunate enough to get to the Great Dane Brew Pub on the East side of Madison for St Patrick’s day this year.

We were joined by some close friends who enjoy drinking  great Wisconsin craft beer.


Great Dane Brew Pub

Great Dane Brew PubThe Great Dane Brew Pub has been my favorite Wisconsin brew pub for many years. For many good reasons.

The main reason is the wonderful Crop Circle Wheat, a Wisconsin craft beer that I have been enjoying since the late 1990’s.

Since this visit to the Great Dane Brew Pub was on St. Patrick’s day, the normally cloudy, bright orange color of the Crop Circle Wheat was festively colored green. Which seemed really strange, but it did not affect the taste of this popular Wisconsin craft beer.

The staff and the bartenders at the Great Dane East are always  on their game and tonight was no exception. Even thought it was a holiday night they were very quick to get us another beer and get our food order to us fast.

We had the German Pilsner, a Black and Tan and the Crop Circle Wheat while we were there. All of the beers tasted great, a testament to their clean tap lines.

I was very happy that the Great Dane Brew Pub decided to establish an East side location. Their Downtown location is great and is their flagship but getting back the East side was not the easiest thing to do sometimes. Much cheaper cab ride home now!

If you are looking for some original Wisconsin craft beer in a unique Wisconsin craft brew pub setting the Great Dane Brew Pub is a perfect choice.

Great Wisconsin craft beer, attentive staff and hearty food make this place one of my favorite places to drink craft beer in Madison. Try the Friday Fish Fry for a traditional Wisconsin experience.
