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.

🍔Happy National Burger Day!🍔

Did you know $1 of every burger sold goes to a community cause of our choosing? With your help, we are currently working towards a nice donation to @madisonreadingproject  In the month of August, we have sold 500 burgers 🎉 We think that's in part thanks to the high-quality grass-fed beef we get from @highlandspringfarm 

📸Pictured here are -- 

🍔Longtable Burger - Black pepper-crusted Highland Spring Farm grass-fed beef*, provolone, LBC white sauce on a soft bun **pictured here with added @Nueskes🥓-- you can also add avocado!

🍔Chimichurri Burger - Highland Spring Farm grass-fed beef, chimichurri sauce (fresh oregano, parsley, garlic, red wine vinegar, chili flakes, olive oil, lemon juice), roasted cherry tomato, Wisconsin pepper jack cheese on a Clasen brioche bun **pictured here with our new gluten-free bun
