While Friede & Associates was busy constructing Vintage Brewing Company in Sauk City, Wisconsin in 2017, planning had already begun for a fourth location on Madison, Wisconsin’s near eastside. Vintage Brewing Company President Mark Kraemer disclosed to the Friede team in the Fall of 2016 that they were in negotiations to lease the first floor of a building that would be built at the corner of Livingston Street and the 800 block of East Washington Avenue.
The Old Fashioned, a Wisconsin-themed, retro-style tavern where “Wisconsin Is King” is located in Madison, Wisconsin.
We are always eager to read “The Top 10 [Insert A Topic] in Wisconsin” posts from Best Things Wisconsin, USA Today, OnlyInYourState.com, Buzzfeed, and other publications as they draw attention to the wonders of Wisconsin. Many times they focus on restaurants, water parks, attractions, resorts or retail outlets that Friede & Associates has had the pleasure to build. Who would have guessed when we constructed The Old Fashioned Restaurant about a decade ago that it would go on to be a staple on these lists in both the restaurant and bar categories.
So, we got thinking about some of the restaurants and bars we have built over the past 10 years or so and decided to compile our own “15 Best.” Bon appetit!
