We love hanging out with friends, sitting around a long table, sharing good food and drink and lively conversation. Whether in our kitchen, our back yard or at a beer garden, it is always fun to put out a spread of food and bring out bottles of craft beers and wines to share. We love doing this so much, we decided to bring the concept to life in our newest venture.
One of the things we have loved the most about owning Brasserie V is seeing how people come together over a bottle of beer and a plate of food, people connecting with strangers sitting communally at the bar, sharing stories and finding common interests. In this day and age, this level of personal connection seems so meaningful, face to face and not through a keyboard.
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. Choosing the Good Neighbor City as the home for this idea felt entirely appropriate, especially since we are long-time residents of Middleton.
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 Marshall and New Glarus. The namesake Longtable is 23 feet long, and seats 22 people!
