Downtown Kitchen Closed Feb. 19-28 for Remodeling. Bar OPEN.
After 30 years, we’re closing the kitchen at our flagship location in downtown Madison for a facelift. The bar will remain open, and we’ll have pork & chicken tacos for $2.50 each and Bar Nachos for $5. Carry-in food also is allowed during the remodel!

Friends & Beers for more than 25 years.
Two college friends set out to do something relatively unheard of in the mid-90s: Open a pub that brews its own beer, while providing food that’s fresh, worldly and comforting. Nearly three decades later, our pubs remain true to that mission. Always local. Always welcoming. And always committed to the craft.
