  1. We came to Madison (two hours away) for the Thursday evening cask ale fest at High Noon (and the added treat of the free "big beer" samples at the Brass Rail!). While the rain could've held off, this was a fine event with a small but tasty selection of cask ales. On Friday, we ventured to Dexter's for their "Hell's Bells" extravaganza, and then off to Glass Nickel to enjoy Great Lakes and Founder's brews. A special "cheers" to Glass Nickel for free pizza featuring various sausages soaked in a variety of beers (do a little PR, though--let people know what sausages featured what beers). What a thoughtful, tasty treat that was! The Beer Week booklet was informative and handy (nice size) and the website was also helpful. We tip our caps to those who worked hard to organize the event and to the venues which participated. A very cool idea; wish we could've spent the week in Madtown! Cheers, and way to go! Madison and its beer fans are quite lucky.
