Try the food, not just beer, at Ale Asylum

The Madison brewery serves appetizers, sandwiches, pizzas

By Dan Curd

One expects beer at a brewpub to be a bit ingenious. To be sure, the menu at Ale Asylum depends on tried-and-true bar snacks like apps, sandwiches and pizza. But like the beer, the food flaunts fancy. Chips with audacious homemade salsa, goat cheese in a namesake salad that's panko-breaded and pan-fried, and a ham and Havarti sandwich piled high and slathered with aioli. Extraordinarily, vegetarian options abound. But it would be impossible to overlook the exceptional beer: four year-round house brews and another half dozen seasonal specials available on tap and in bottles, as well some taproom exclusives.
