Grumpy Troll Pub & Brewing Company

The Grumpy Troll lies just off the main “Trollway” (Highway 78) in a former creamery and cheese factory in Mount Horeb. Opened in 2000, you’ll find a nice selection of craft beers which can be enjoyed anytime, but especially during “Grumpy Hour” (Sunday-Wednesday 4-6pm, ’til close on Thursdays.)

The Grumpy beers include the Sunflower, a Farmhouse Ale; Trailside Wheat, a Hefeweizen named for its location along the Military Ridge Trail; Captain Fred, an American lager; E.O. Dark Strong Ale; Over N Under Pale Ale; Norski Nut Brown; Hoppa Loppa; Erik the Red; a Maibock; their Whiskey Barrel Stout; and more. The sampler can be as large as 15 beers.

The restaurant features a full menu and popular pizza pub; all of the items can be paired nicely with the variety of beers brewed at the Grumpy Troll. Every year on the 2nd Saturday in September, the brewpub hosts Thirsty Troll Brew Fest in Grundahl Park nearby.

The Grumpy Troll is just off Highway 78 and Business U.S. 151; the U.S. 18/151 bypass is just to the south, and Highway 92 comes in from the southeast.
