Great Dane Eastside was not my first choice in which Great Dane location to visit. But I was tired and had to stop at Ale Asylum as well so it was off to Eastside. The pub has a chain restraunt vibe to it, ala Granite City or Rock Bottom. About a dozen beer choices were available. The beer I tried was good but not really memorable. Most people in the place were either drinking cocktails or wine. Service was fast and friendly. Cute bartender. The biggest letdown was the food. Poorly constructed and executed. It was also rather flavorless. Beer prices seem to be $.50 more a pint then anywhere else in the area. I would give them another try but I should of went to the downtown Great Dane.

Stop #226 on my brewery tour of the world.
Having visited the exceptional downtown location of Great Dane earlier in the day, I figured I'd cross another brewery off my list and hit up this location which was close to my hotel.
Two very different experiences.
The evening crowd was very young and there were lots of cocktails being poured vs. the beer. The interior felt more like a suburban chain. To be fair, the downtown location is the benchmark for brewpubs in historic settings.
I went with a pint of the pale ale and the hottest wings they had which were slightly underdone for my liking - very spicy though.

A dream come true for me...a brew pub in my neighborhood.
Technically, the new Great Dane Pub on Madison' East side (in the site formerly occupied by Cloud 9 and Jovian Taphaus) just sells Great Dane beers brewed at their downtown and Fitchburg locations.
The downstairs is primarily a bar area. Currently, this location has 8-10 of Great Dane's most popular beers at all times, plus 3 rotating beers.
Just like the other Great Dane locations, the food and service were superb. I ordered a Black and Tan made with the Emerald Isle stout and Old Glory Pale Ale and it did not separate, although that may have been due to it having been carried upstairs.
I also ordered a growler of the Black Earth Porter, which is my favorite of their beers.
This location was very busy on Friday and Saturday night, and should be successful as, unlike their predecessors, Great Dane has several other successful sites and can reap economies of scale by shipping excess inventory from their other locations to this site.
I will be spending a lot of time here!
