Formerly known as Isadore Street Brewing. The Keg is located near the UWSP campus, at the corner of Maria Avenue and Isadore Street. Recent remodeling has created a restaurant upstairs and a bar in the basement, with video games, pool tables, bubble hockey, foosball, dartboards, and live bands. The beers are brewed on a 10-barrel all-grain system visible from the upstairs bar. There are seven regulars on tap along with a seasonal; they also serve beers from Stevens Point Brewery alongside the usual industrial light beers. The kitchen serves up a reasonably extensive menu, including sandwiches and burgers ($5-$9), lots of finger foods ($3-$10), pizza ($7-$9), and some dinner entrees ($7-$13), along with some vegetarian plates ($7-$11). They're also serving breakfast on the weekends from 6:00-10:30am.
