"Novelty beer" is the most apt description I can think of for this place. Itís weird, inventive stuff but none of it is particularly good. You can see what theyíre doing with a lot of the styles and appreciate the creativity, but doing a simpler, better standard style would benefit them, I think.
Cool location inside of an old building by the river on the south side of Downtown. A smaller bar but plenty of tables around. Very dark and a little musty. Samplers are expensive but pints are reasonable.

Very basic (in a good way) looking bar. First thing you notice when you walk in, is the strong fresh brewing smell - Yum! 9 taps and 1 cask, good variety of styles. Pretty good quality overall.

Very comfortable place. No food but lots of interesting beer to try. Wish I lived here they let you brew your own batches for home use

This is a nice, cozy little brewpub with tons of local ambiance. No food, just a local joint to enjoy on premise brewed beers. Service was ok, as the bartender was not that outgoing or friendly. Maybe itís because I was overdressed. I only had time for one beer, but it was excellent. If I lived here, I could see myself spending a lot of time here.

As I walked in, I smelled brewing, mmmm. What I liked most about this place is that I felt welcomed even though this was the first time I was in this place. The people in the pub was friendly, the bartender was well informed, personable, and prompt. The ambiance was comfortable. I wish I had a designated driver. If in Peoria, stop by and have a pint. I will be back again.

Stopped by around 10pm on a Friday night. Not overly busy, but itís right next door to a popular bar, so only true beer people come here. SOlid selection, 8 brews on tap in a variety of styles. I tried the Honey and Spice Belgian, River City Wheat, and Blueberry Dark Ale. All were solid beers. Plenty of seating for the time and day we were there. Decent prices, snappy service, and the place smells of BREWING! I will definitely be coming back here again, and again....and again. Iím hooked.

I love this place. I usually stop by after work for one. Thereís always a 9% to 12% abv on tap. Thereís also a cask which is a bonus. This is a locals kinda of place, they donít worry about fancy TVís or food. They care about good beer. Mark the Brewmaster is very friendly and knowledgeable. Iíve brewed two batches of beer with him so far, itís been a nice experience and the beer turned out great. My favorites are the MacBethís Revenge, Dark Star Porter, Belgium Tripel, Imperial Stout, and Double Red.

A quaint little place...most of their beers were solid...the bartender was more concerned with the regulars at the bar than us though...
