Who is House of Brews?
House of Brews is Madison's newest and smallest microbrewery. We intend to brew a wide variety of beers on our "repurposed" dairy equipment at the brewhouse.
House of Brews is also Wisconsin's first "Community Supported Brewery." Following the CSA model used in agriculture, we will take subscribers who will receive a periodic allotment of beer (some of which will only be available to them) and they will also get input as to what is brewed. For more information on how that will all work, click here.
On tap around Madison at:
Weary Traveler Free House
Vintage Brewing Company (west side location)
Tex Tubb's Taco Palace
& others being added all the time.

Spotlight on: Kremlin
This is a Russian Imperial Stout, very malty, sweet and roasty, balanced by an adequate dose of Cascade hops. Some alcohol warmth. 8.7%
Look for it at some of my Craft Beer Week Events and coming up at "select" craft beer bars.
I developed this from a beer that was originally developed and brewed for Tex Tubb's Taco Palace. It was a huge 9.5% Black IPA that ended up tasting more similar to Old Rasputin (a well-known Russian Imperial Stout).
It may be a bit "out of season" according to some, but I brewed it at when I did because I had the time and fermentation space. I plan to do it at least once a year and sock some away in bourbon barrels.
Tap Room Hours Extended!
Our tap room has been pretty popular so the hours have been expanded to include Saturdays (see below). As always carrry in food is welcome. We are looking to start tours soon, so check back for info on that and be sure to like us on Facebook.
Currently our hours are Tuesday through Thursday 3:30 till 9:30pm, Friday from 3:30 til ?, and Saturday Noon to ? depending on if people are there or not. Cheers!
