Our focus is on bottles, with self-serve open coolers offering 300 brews. Beers can be purchased to take home or enjoy at our communal tables, and we encourage you to put together a pack for sharing. The bottle selection is complemented by 12 rotating taps with all beers available in short and long pours.

Our Menu

Our menu is created from artisanal meats, cheeses, breads and local produce, and is designed for sharing: think charcuterie, cheese and veggie boards, artisanal sandwiches, farm-fresh salads, seasonal sides, and shareable snacks including Belgian-style Frites!

What We Are

Longtable Beer Cafe Interior

Longtable Beer Cafe is a combination cafe, bottle shop and tasting room, located in downtown Middleton, which brings a communal experience to craft beer and food.

The cafe features communal seating in a casual setting, intended to bring the feel of the outdoors in. Many of the windows and walls fully open to the outside, allowing the communal vibe to flow right out to the patio. Our tables were custom-made right here in Middleton from reclaimed barn wood from New Glarus and Marshall, WI. The namesake Longtable is 23 feet long, and seats 22 people!

Our separate tasting room offers a gathering space where we will hold tasting events, or you can have meetings and private parties up to 16 people. Hang out, sip, savor, play games, shoot darts. So, come pick out a bottle, order a board, pull up a bench and break bread with friends new and old.


No events available.

@duvel_belgium  is a longstanding Belgian classic, often easy to pass by in this world of so many beer options. In conjunction with King Gambrinus Day, the birthday of the oft-claimed patron saint of beer, we will celebrate this great Belgian brewery with a glassware giveaway and Perfect Pour lessons. ๐Ÿป

Duvel is Flemish for โ€œdevilโ€ and thatโ€™s no coincidence. This devilishly strong blond is slow-brewed to perfection with the finest ingredients for a heavenly taste. The 90-day brewing process results in a highly carbonated beer with incredible head retention. The same dedication, care, and commitment to quality that Duvel puts into the brewing of every bottle should be given to the serving of the beer. Thatโ€™s why Duvel developed the first Belgian tulip glass in the 1960s to offer a more complete experience to this iconic beer!

Purchase a Duvel beer on April 11 and get an iconic Duvel Tulip Glass* to enjoy the beer in AND to take home. We will also have Perfect Pour lessons to see who can hit the middle of the D with perfect 50/50 percentage of beer to foam. Succeed on your first try and you will be rewarded with a prize.

We hope you will join us and hoist a glass in honor of not only a classic Belgian brew, but also King Gambrinus, an icon of beer, brewing, and joviality.

* Limit one glass per person.
