Why Come to Bierock?

We could find hundreds of reasons to come to Bierock. Here’s a few…

(Please note that some of these have been impacted by COVID-19 and a return to normal operations is anticipated.)

  • Come enjoy a Volga-German family recipe that goes back generations. You’re not going to find bierocks anywhere else in Madison, perhaps even Wisconsin. Freshly baked meat pies each served with a unique house-made dipping sauce.
  • Appreciate food that is made from scratch. Fresh meat and produce are used by our cooks to prepare a meal that is both healthy and tasty. Nothing is deep fried and yet, the food is still delicious.
  • Want something vegetarian? How about something gluten-sensitive? We’ve got your dietary wants and needs covered.
  • We partner with local vendors to source our ingredients. They include Indian Farm Mushrooms and Hops, Rural Route 1 Popcorn, Jenifer Street Market, Penzeys Spices, Carr Valley Cheese and Beef Butter BBQ.
  • We have 24 constantly rotating lines of craft beer. Find what’s on tap here.
  • There’s something for everyone. Whether you like light beer, dark beer, bitter and hoppy beer, malty beer, sour beer, barrel aged beer or something in between, you’ll sure to find something you like.
  • We fill growlers! And howlers!
  • Not in the mood for beer? There’s a full selection of liquor and wine as well, including a cocktail menu and gluten-free options like cider.
