Here’s the menu for the Around the Square tour:
1 / Sixteen taps dispense craft beers brewed at Great Dane Pub and Brewing Company (greatdanepub.com). We love the crisp, light-bodied German pilsner paired with a brat-and-bacon burger.
2 / Gotham Bagels brings hand-rolled New York-style bagels to the Midwest. Sample a savory breakfast sandwich of thick-cut bacon, egg and cheddar cheese on a sesame bagel. (608) 467-7642
3 / At Kilwins Madison (kilwins.com), swoon over Mackinac Island-style fudge in flavors such as sea salt caramel or turtle.
4 / Get a second swig of craft beer at Wisconsin Brewing Tap Haus. Reuben rolls (deep-fried wontons filled with corned beef, kraut and Swiss cheese) join a flight of ales and porters. (608) 310-1010
5 / Roll into Dlux (dluxmadison.com) for a sweet finale. Sip chocolate peanut butter pretzel shakes made with ice cream from Sassy Cow Creamery in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin.
