Opens November 25th

Enjoy as The Taproom is transformed into Buddy’s Brew Pub – the ultimate Christmas Brewery inspired by the light-hearted Christmas comedy Elf. Get festive with the most Christmasy of Christmas decorations including elves of all shapes, strands of festive lights, paper snowflakes and tributes to our all time favorite elf.

You won’t have to pass through the seven levels of the Candy Cane forest, the sea of swirly twirly gumdrops, or the Lincoln Tunnel to enjoy the festivities, just a quick trip to Mt Horeb, WI.

And you can enjoy Christmas-themed cocktails and special holiday menu items featuring all the four main food groups — candy, candy canes, candy corn and syrup.

Walk-Ins Welcome

We welcome small groups as walk-ins that can be seated at the bar or in the pub on a first come, first served basis.

Larger group? Make a reservation!

So…do you wanna go eat food?

It wouldn’t be Buddy’s Brew Pub without the four main food groups and some extra special menu items that will make you so happy you’ll be singing loud for all to hear!

We don’t want any angry elves, so our regular menu is available too!

Group Reservation

Private Event

Looking for a fully private event? During the week, you can rent Buddy’s Brew Pub for your private event including bar and private restrooms. We can seat 75 people comfortably for dinners and can accommodate up to 250 for the more casual events. $150 deposit is required to reserve space with full payment due two weeks in advance.

Our pricing is based on “goods purchased” which consists of food and drink purchases, therefore we have no room charge. However, if the minimum required is not met the remaining balance will be charged as a “room fee.” Tax and gratuity will be added to all final bills, with the gratuity not included in the minimum. Final bills are to be made as a single payment only (no individual checks please).
