What the f@&% is a bierock?

Many cultures have a savory pastry. In Latin America, they have the empanada. In Italy, they have the calzone. In Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula, they have the pasty.

Meanwhile, in the Plain States such as Kansas and Oklahoma, they have the bierock. In Nebraska, they’re known as runzas. Whatever they’re called, they’re a mouth-watering pastry traditionally filled with beef, cabbage, onions, cheese and seasoning. Bierocks were brought to America from Volga German immigrants from which, Amanda—our owner—can claim her heritage.

At Bierock Madison, we serve the traditional form but also offer modern interpretations inspired from other cultures as well. Located on Superior Street in Madison, Wis., Bierock is your source for comfort food and craft beer.
