Vintage Brewing Co. 'satellite pub' opens Saturday in Sauk City


The Woodshed Ale House, a "satellite pub" of Madison's Vintage Brewing Co., will open on Saturday in Sauk City.

Woodshed, 101 Jackson St., at 5 p.m. after an extensive renovation that began in August. The circa 1860 building had been Jimmy's tavern for 21 years but has "a long history and colorful history" as a pub, dance hall, boarding house and even Prohibition speakeasy, said Vintage brewmaster Scott Manning.

The pub will feature 10 Vintage beers on draught, including the pub's namesake Woodshed, an India pale ale aged on oak chips, and four brewed specifically for the Sauk City location: Twin City Blonde, a golden ale; Sauk Hop, an American pale ale brewed with all local hops; Butternut Road nut brown ale; and Higher Grounds stout made w/ locally roasted coffee. Four guest taps of locally made craft beer also will be on tap. The building has no kitchen, so food is limited for now to pizzas handmade at Vintage.

Woodshed and Vintage, 674 S. Whitney Way, are owned by several members of the Kraemer family, including Manning. A smaller group of the family also owns Vintage Spirits and Grill, 529 University Ave.
