Known as Middleton’s “back yard”, Capital Brewery & Bier Garten is the first stop on the trolley’s route. Picking passengers up right in front of the bier garden, and dropping them off again. This is the perfect spot to relax any evening or weekend in Middleton. Capital Brewery’s been in business 35 years, creating award-winning craft lagers and ales. On summer weekend nights, it’s common for live music to be playing. The bier garden is also dog-friendly, unless there is an event.


This stop is at the back entrance to the Hilton Garden Inn within Greenway Station, which is a 51-acre outdoor shopping center with name brand stores and restaurants. There is also a farmer’s market at Greenway during Thursdays in summer.

STOPs 6, 7 & 12: downtown

Middleton’s downtown is a combination of historic charm and rejuvenated businesses. Stop 6 brings visitors to Staybridge Inn & Suites and right next door to Cayuga Street—there are restaurants, shopping and the Middleton Post Office nearby.

Stop 7 and 12: Right in the heart of downtown, these stops are at the corner of Elmwood Avenue and Parmenter Street.
