Hop on this Happy Hour excursion! We'll sample beer all night by heading over to Wisconsin Brewing Co. to learn about the brewing process with a tour and you'll get your choice of a pint of beer or three sample flight. After you learned how beer is made in a large production facility, you'll visit a much more modest facility, Hop Haus Brewing where you'll see how they do it on the small scale. From there, we'll speed off to Capital Brewery. This brewery is Madison's first microbrewery and you'll enjoy your beer in the Bier Garten that features Live Music every Thursday and Friday evening. After you've had your fill of local beer, we'll drop you off at the Vintage Brewing Co. It's like 4 breweries for the price of 3!
