Angry Minnow Brewpub (Hayward, WI)
The Angry Minnow was a quick stop on our bus tour of Wisconsin, so no time to eat. But the Minnow is in a beautiful old brick building that was just screaming to be converted into a brewpub. Dark wood inside and a old comfortable feeling to the place. We sat on an outside patio surrounded by brick arches. Extremely pleasant on a fall evening. I've tasted their beers at various festivals and the draft versions didn't change my mind much--all good but not great beers. My favorite has consistently been the River Pig Pale Ale, which is quite enjoyable to drink. It was quiet with all locals when we stopped.
