Make your way to a central location in downtown Madison, then join a guide and group for your first tasting at The Great Dane: fuel up for the walk with snacks and beer as you learn about the history of the restaurant and Wisconsin’s bratwurst tradition.
Stroll towards Gotham Bagels, with plenty of time to stop to see the city’s architectural landmarks, and hear stories about Madison history. Pause to try samples from the only New York City style bagel shop in Madison, then keep walking towards Capitol Square, site of the weekly Dane County Farmers Market. Head into the thriving, student area of State Street for your next two tastings, Mackinac Island-style fudge at Kilwins, and deep fried cheese curds from the Wisconsin Brewing Tap Haus. Look inside the beautiful Capitol building, and find out the controversy behind Madison’s first skyscraper.
End the tour on a sweet note with a milkshake tasting at DLUX, a modern burger restaurant near the capitol, and close to downtown Madison attractions.
