Brennan's Cellars to Open in Former Brennan's Market Location

Former Employee to Carry on the Brennan’s Madison Tradition

Madison, Wisconsin: Brennan’s Cellars to open in former Brennan’s Market location at 8210 Watts Rd, Madison in early December under new ownership. Brennan’s Cellars will stock the best of Brennan’s, including Wisconsin cheese, Chin Drippin’ fruit, specialty food, wine & micro-beer, along with a new emphasis on meats, deli and prepared food. 

This is truly a passion project for new owner, Tim Mulcahy.  “I’ve worked at Brennan’s most of my life and wasn’t ready to give it up. After speaking with thousands of customers over the summer, it seemed that Madisonians weren’t ready to let it go either. It’s been an intense couple of months bringing Brennan’s back to life. We can’t wait to open and welcome Madison back,” said Mulcahy. 

Mulcahy has assembled a team of former Brennan’s Market managers and buyers to open Brennan’s Cellars and continue to source top-notch products from right here in Wisconsin and around the country and the world. Mulcahy said, “We are working hard to bring back all the favorites. We also want to acknowledge today’s busy lifestyles and are putting a much greater emphasis on our meat/deli area, specifically prepared foods. We will have delicious, high-quality options to-go and have added new in-store seating.” 

---- Brennan’s Cellars will continue the holiday gift program. Wisconsin Cheese boxes available both in-store and online. Gift Baskets will be available in-store. 
---- Brennan’s Cellars will have favorites like Sweet N’ Hot Pepper Relish, Fresh Farmer Basil Cheese, Chin Drippin’ Idaho Peaches (when in season) and so much more
---- Brennan’s Cellars will continue the philosophy of “try before you buy” and offer a fun sampling program. 

Brennan’s Cellars, LLC: Brennan’s Cellars is a new locally-owned community market opening on Madison’s far west side specializing in Wisconsin Cheese, Chin Drippin ’Fruit, specialty food, wine, microbeer, meats, deli and prepared foods. Brennan’s Cellars will build on all the best things about its predecessor, Brennan’s Market to bring Madisonians a unique, fun and high-quality shopping experience.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Do you ship cheese curds? 
We don't recommend shipping curds. They are extremely sensitive to temperature change and don't travel well. In addition, they have a short shelf life. 

2. How long can I keep cheese curds in my refrigerator?
Cheese Curds are a fresh product meant to be consumed within one week of purchase ideally. 

3. Can I travel with them on a plane?
Yes, keep them cold until you travel and get them in refrigeration as soon as you get home. If possible, put them in a checked bag, as it is colder than in the cabin.
