The tour wasn't very good. The guide spoke too fast and I didn't really learn much about the brewery, which I was hoping for. The tasting was good, and of course the beer was good.

We visited Capital Brewery on a Saturday around lunch time. Our tour started on time, and the tour guide was polite. Since it was the weekend, we did not get to see the operation in action, but we did get to see the storage and keg filling areas. There were several beers on tap to try with the samples that...

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.

The Capital Brewery was one of the first craft breweries in Madison. Their flagship beers are pretty standard (in my opinion), but they have some very good specialty and seasonal brews. Their Oktoberfest and double IPA's are good examples. The big thing here is that they have a large beer garden adjacent to the brewery. In the summer their is... More

Capital Brewery has been an integral part of Middleton since 1986. There have been changes and expansions the years Capital offers a beer garden, tours, and gift shop. The outdoor venue is open April through October. The brewery has a street clogging bicycle group on Tuesday. They sponsor many events and fund raisers for the community. One of the interesting...

A few members of a business group decided to go to the brewery and just relax. There was a team event going on and they made the place quite lively with all their team bonding games. The beer was good as was expected and we ordered some pizza from inside. People come to drink, play cards, listen to music and... More

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. When I can go to a bar and get it cheaper.....something is wrong there.

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.

What a great event...we have been going for the past 3 years and it is always a great time. You can bring your own food and snacks. The beer is amazing and the entertainment was marginal. But it's a great way to spend an afternoon outside with friends in winter! They have a shuttle service between the hotels and the... More

Not being a beer drinker, it's still a good place to meet friends. It has a huge patio area and live music (not all the time). It's a great place to have a party. They have added a food cart (different carts come in) which is nice.
