On the corner of Odana and Whitney sits a brewpub. It has big screen tvs, a nice big friendly bar, decent enough food, free poker. It has all the makings of a neighborhood bar, even despite the fact that it isn't really in any neighborhood. But why do I wish they just wouldn't brew their own beer? Some of their beers are very good. But many of them aren't. I'm afraid to order any of them for fear that I will get one that isn't any good.
Sorry I can't be more specific. But maybe it's my fault. Maybe I shouldn't even bother with their barley wines and the weizens and the belgian beers (just to name a few). Just go, order an IPA or Alt or Kolsch, watch the Badgers game, play some pool and call it a day.
