in the middle of nowhere Illinois, the last place you would expect to find a gem... new really nice looking building... 13 of their own beers on tap, most of them were great... service was very friendly and knowledgeable of their beers... food was good as well... a must stop if in the area

Im going against the grain on this one. I have been to this place 4-5 times and was disapointed eveyrtime i went. The beer and food is average at best and the contemporary ambiance is terrible. From what i gather, this brewer was the same guy that was brewing at Elmwood brewing in west central IL-maybe why the beer is not so good.

Ok, the setting is nothign special as itís next to a big Target and poorly marked, I drove past it twice with out seeing it. The interior has a simple industrial feel that is also like a maze. The staff I talked to knew their beer. The beers were solid overall with a nice variety. The food I had was plated in a fancy manner and was very tasty. I also enjoyed the eclectic music, These guys are barrel aging lots of stuff, look for them to be contenders at future festivals. I will definitely stop in again if in that part of IL.

We finally made our way here and while the restaurant has a weird upscale feel to it, it wasnít really snooty. It is laid out really oddly with an 8-top on a stage. At any rate, being so new/young I didnít have huge expectations, but they still didnít live up to what they could be. Hopefully itíll get better with time.

Nice upscale style decoration. More of a restaurant feel than brewpub. Five "flagship" beers and five specials on tap when I was there ranging from a Pale Lager to to double IPA and barrel aged beers. I was pleasantly suprised by the variety and quality of the beers. Food was solid, featuring a lot of sandwiches and salads as well as some entrees and a limited brunch menu on the Sunday I was there. Creative ingredients and food offerings. Offering 2 dollar pints never hurts either which they were. They have interesting looking flip top growlers which they charge you 8 bucks for, but I was not complaining as it was only $6-12 to fill it up, with the price increasing for the higher abv or specialty beers. Iíd like to go back and try some of their barrel aged beers and get a feel for some of their more experimental beers.

Come here whenever in Blo-No because their beer is well crafted and they always have a variety of styles. Sour Belgian, black IPA, fresh IPA and harvest ales... this is a good spot and the best IL beer establishment outside the Chicagoland.

Itís been awhile since Iíve been to Destihl, but I went rather quickly after they opened. The ambiance was nice, upscale restaurant and not very beer-focused, and Iím not sure the beer drinker is who they appeal to. The service was very good; we had a waiter at our table who was very attentive, moderately knowledgeable about the beers, and got us what we needed. The selection was basically limited to their beers and a few others, which was okay. The food was pretty good, which leads into the value. You need to know going in that this is a moderately expensive upscale type place that will easily charge 20 bucks a steak and 14 bucks for a burger basket... itís not a pub! The food is still really good, though! Overall, if youíre around the town and want to hit a brewpub, go here, but be prepared to pay for the food youíre getting with their overall average beers.

Very good place with a combination of god beer and good food. About 8-10 types of beer on tap. Overall, very good beer and food. Hit this place everytime I am in Bloomington.

A really nice place. Apparently, they just opened the place up recently... and I just happened to drive by and see it. Upscale interior. Seven different beers on tap, most of which were pretty good. Food is a little expensive, but better than typical brewpub fare. Service was pretty good, despite how busy the place was. Overall, I was very impressed with the place... especially after just driving up and seeing it!

Being a new spot on the Veterans Parkway mall/shop/restaurant/motel strip that cuts through Bloomington-Normal, this has the shiny clean look of a something-better-than-family restaurant. Thereís few food choices for someone (like me) with a restrictive diet, but the Asian Chicken Salad was pretty decent... once I found the few bits of chicken in it. Somewhat pricey. But the beer is whatís most important to me, and this is a place that shows promise. They have thirteen taps, but right now have only seven beers on tap, including a fairly tasty barleywine when I stopped in. This is definitely a place to stop at if youíre in the area. The location was crying out for a brewpub. The alternatives were either the Illinois Brewing company in Bloomington (which you might want to pass on) or a 30-to-45 minute drive to Rhodellís in Peoria (a must stop).
