    Good City is worth visiting. Brenner is a hard pass.

    If you like hops definitely add the new Black Husky brew pub to your list. Really cool place, close to Company Brewing.

    Also if possible check out Raised Grain.

    Camp is just South and Draft & Vessel is just North. I suspect you are referring to D&V. Nice place

    Third Space and Good City are both solid. I can't vouch for Company or Urban Harvest, but if you check out Company, Black Husky is in the neighborhood and worth your time as previously mentioned. Avoid Mobcraft and Brenner like the plague.

    They've never had a draft list that made me want to go there and the prices always seem to be $1 - $3 too much.

    I like the atmosphere at D&V, and it's on my way home from work. But I agree that the tap list is generally above average, but not great, and the prices might be a little higher than other places.

    Since it's getting close, figured I'd throw my hat in the ring. Half my family missed out on CW Anni tickets since they're not use to how fast beer fest tickets sell out these days.
    If anyone has any extras and interested in passing them on for cost, let me know. We don't need anymore bottles beyond the 4 tickets we already have. They just want to attend the party with the rest of us like we have been doing each year. I'm sure we can work something out there so you can still get the 6 bottle alottment if you would like. Looking for 2-3 tickets.
    Happy to do a GPIUFM for any non-FIBs that take me up on this also.

    Apparently Enigma's hitting Madison today. Hopefully not too far behind in MKE.

    Didn't care for it last year. I assume that it uses Oud Bruin as base. Oud Bruin b1 kind of sucked, tasted metallic, as did Enigma 2016 (and BBBB for that matter).

    Oud Bruin b2 was fantastic which has me excited for this year's batch of Enigma.

    So... See everyone at CW tomorrow? (Except furley)

    Any word on a taplist? I see nothing on the Book Face.
