Cheers! Beer fans will find plenty of reasons to raise a glass in Middleton, whether you’re looking for your next happy hour destination or simply want to see how beer is made. Here are a few stops you shouldn’t miss.
No mention of Middleton’s beer hotspots is complete without talking about Capital Brewery, which has crafted iconic ales, lagers and stouts for more than 30 years. Taste award-winning beers or tour its facility in downtown Middleton. In the warmer months, catch live music three times a week at the brewery’s large outdoor bier garten.
Visitors to Longtable Beer Cafe in downtown Middleton will have no shortage of beers to choose from. This inviting cafe/bottle shop/tasting room has 300 varieties of bottled beer and more than a dozen rotating taps, as well as a full menu of delicious offerings, including charcuterie plates, BBQ platters and farm-fresh salads.
The newest addition to Middleton’s beer scene, Point Burger Bar recently opened in the former Quaker Steak and Lube building on Deming Way. The restaurant offers mouth-watering burgers, but beer fans will also find dozens of Point Brewery beers on tap, including award-winners, barrel-aged rarities and ciders. If you’re not into beer, Point Burger Bar also offers a selection of alcoholic custard shakes.
Beer, beer and more beer. That’s what’s on tap—and in bottles—at World of Beer on Greenway Boulevard on Middleton’s west side. From global imports to local favorites, beer drinkers can choose from more than 500 bottles from across the world and dozens of taps from breweries in Wisconsin, the Midwest and beyond. Don’t miss out on their tasty lunch and dinner menu, too, and visit them on Saturdays and Sundays for “Beerunch.”
