An awesome brewpub near campus in Champaign. The food, beer list, and service are all great, and the atmosphere is upscale, clean, and open. I really like this place. The beer is good to great, but I’d come back for the food periodically even if it wasn’t.
This place was actually pretty nice. Kind of almost upscale, but the still had a nice bar area and the brewing equipment was visible. Good and attentive service. Nice selection of beers. All available in 4 oz pours for shockingly good prices. We tried one appetizer and it was excellent (but you had better like bacon!) I would go here a lot if I lived in Champaign.
Stopped in for lunch on the way to DLD 2013. Sat in the bar area, staff was very friendly. We sampled all the beers on tap, and had a great lunch. Tough to say which was the best beer, several were very tasty. Food selection was awesome as well. Would definitely return.
Went out with some friends... super friendly wait staff. Knowledgeable about the beers they had on tap. Was a little pricey but GREAT for a special occasion as was our case. Ambiance was nice, and it wasn’t too busy. Really liked that you could get the 4 oz or 6 oz beers. Would recommend to others and definitely plan on returning when I can!
Went here twice over a weekend in Champaign. Both things I had for dinner were good. Waitstaff seemed well educated on the beers on offer. All the food I had was good. Very reasonable prices for beer and very generous pours for $1-$1.50 4 oz tasters. The only complaint I have is the quality of the beer - some of their beers are good but half of the ones I had weren’t anything great.
Stopped here on a Friday night for dinner and drinks. It was quite busy and the bar was full. They have a nice tap list (not quite as long when I was there, more like 6-8 taps) with some interesting styles (imperial stout, belgian IPA, tripel, california common). The beers were all pretty tasty. The food is great - definitely gourmet style with emphasis on presentation and quality. Really this is almost a gastropub. I got a soup and some flautas, which were excellent. Service was ok (new waitress + busy night = some mistakes. But good for me, waitress brought me the wrong beer so I got it for free!). On the higher side of the price range, but you get what you paid for. I had a great time here and definitely recommend it for both beer and food.
