I’d give the ambiance of the neighborhood a 1 but inside this place is pretty nice with a fairly cozy feel and live music on a lot of nights. Service was good when I went, if a little sporadic at times. While they dont serve food the local restaurants will deliver for free and there are some good options near by. The selection is expansive and doesn’t shy away from unique or challenging beers. The only place you’re going to do better in the Western Suburbs is the Bavarian Lodge in Lisle. A great and much needed addition to the area, just wish it wasn’t out in the corporate wasteland along I-88.

Ended up here after the Sam Adams Longshot Competition. There were probably 50+ taps here, good range of the standard Belgians and regionals/nationals coupled with a good chunk of locals. Prices are a bit steep I think. Lots of one offs here, brewery tap nights, etc. Sports bar vibe overall with a spot for a live band. Not too shabby for the area.
