New taproom opens near downtown Monday

Working Draft Beer Company coming soon

MADISON, Wis. - Officials with the Working Draft Beer Company announced Thursday on Facebook that they will be opening its Madison taproom on Monday, March 5.

According to its website, Working Draft operates out of a seven-barrel brew house built by W.M. Sprinkman in Waukesha, and a one-barrel brewery, built by Spike Brewing.

The taproom itself will combine the company's beer with food from Chef Dan Fox, of Heritage Tavern, Heritage Catering and Fox Heritage Farms. Along with Working Draft's taps, two of the 16 taps will offer a gluten-free beer from Alt Brew and a non-alcoholic house-made soda. Crowlers, 32-ounce aluminum cans, will be available for purchase.

The Working Draft site said the company aims to brew lots of IPAs, and that it also likes to make classic German lagers.

Working Draft is going to sponsor an Artist-in-Residence program, so area artists can showcase their work as a gallery space or as a venue for music or poetry.

The taproom will be at 1129 East Wilson St., the former location of RP's Pasta Company.
