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.

🧀Ooooh it is Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day!🧀
We know EXACTLY how to celebrate it. How do we choose between the ooey gooey Grilled Cheese and the Brisket Grilled Cheese? 

Our house Grilled Cheese  has Hook's Cheese Co. 1 year cheddar, provolone, some thinly sliced Honeycrisp apple for a touch of sweet crunch, housemade roasted red onion mayo for a little zip and all squeezed between Madison Sourdough bread. Add @Nueske's bacon 🥓or sliced avocado 🥑for your own spin. 

Our hearty Brisket Grilled Cheese features the same Hook's 1 year cheddar, caramelized onions, and house-smoked Fox Heritage Farms Brisket and squeezed between that perfect Madison Sourdough bread. 

Both #grilledcheesesandwiches can be made #glutenfree  with a quick swap of the bread! 

We open at 11am-- See you for lunch! ⏰

🍻Today we celebrate Orval Day! 

🎣🍺We have the amazing bottle-conditioned Orval available in the cooler and it pairs so nicely with our Smoked Trout Sandwich*. Join us as we pay homage to the great legend of Orval. 

𝘿𝙞𝙙 𝙮𝙤𝙪 𝙠𝙣𝙤𝙬? Orval Trappist Ale was the first Brett beer to land on US shores, and has become the favorite beer for many Trappist beer lovers. “Brett” or brettanomyces – is a yeast variety that adds appetizing, sharp acidity and dryness. Orval is brewed to exquisite perfection within the walls of Notre Dame d’Orval Monastery in Belgium. It’s delicious when it leaves the brewery, but also evolves in the bottle for five years or more.

The Orval legend began almost 1,000 years ago, when a princess accidentally dropped her ring into a spring and a trout returned it. This very spot is where the monastery was built. It continues now, with a day to reflect on and enjoy this amazing Trappist ale.

*rings not included with Longtable's Smoked Trout Sandwich but a side of Frites tastes better anyways.
