Best of the ‘Burbs 2015: Brewery/brewpub
The Grumpy Troll, Mount Horeb
The troll may be grumpy, but the diners inside Mount Horeb’s popular brewpub certainly aren’t. A staunchly Wisconsin establishment, the Grumpy Troll is blunt and upfront about its offerings; a sign dangling over the entrance to the brewpub reads “Beer. Cheese. Food.” Inside, there’s something to satisfy every palate, from the twelve beers on tap for craft beer aficionado to a gourmet pizza menu for families with kiddos. General manager Erica Ruppert says, “If you’re in the mood for any type of American cuisine, you can probably find it on our menu.” For those who can’t get over the name, take a look around Mount Horeb. In naming the brewpub, the Grumpy Troll’s founders took inspiration from the theme of the city, otherwise known as the Troll Capital of the World.
