    The “burger and beer kind of guy” sentiment is one that runs through the restaurant. It is a casual sports bar as much for college students, and those who wish they still were, as it is for families. It has all the sports bar requisites: Big Buck Hunter, Golden Tee, dart boards, and neon beer signs. There are eight televisions spread throughout the remodeled building so you will never miss a snap, a pitch, or a shot.

Kolk says business has been “way better than expected. It has continuously grown since the day we opened.” Maybe burger and beer guys, like Letnes, who created the menu, gravitate to their own.

Kolk created an original drink menu that has a smattering of unique concoctions, including the Beergarita, a 22 ounce margarita with a Corona tipped upside and submerged in the drink. Lift the bottle up a little to let more beer out. It’s a physics lesson and drinking experience all in one. If you don’t like beer and tequila, you can try beer and vodka in The Concussion, a shot of their secret blend of vodka swimming in Pabst Blue Ribbon.

Get a deal on the Beergarita and tacos from their Tex-Mex menu on Thursday nights, which also, starting soon, will be karaoke night. On Saturdays you can get a free Jell-O shot whenever the Badgers score and check out live music at night. Free Jell-O shots also come with Packers scores and on Sundays you can create your own Bloody Mary at the Bloody Mary bar.

If you do not need more than a pound of beef or your beer dumped upside down in tequila, create your own burger, or substitute chicken for beef, and order one of the Wisconsin made beers sitting behind the bar.

And leave your Schlitz at home in the fridge because they have it on tap.
