Well, this is going to be hard to rate this place. Stopped in with deyholla and TheAlum on our way to St. Louis to try some beers and pick up stuff for RateBeer Summer Gathering and they truly rolled out the red carpet for us.

Incredibly friendly people from the service staff to the brewing stuff to the management. They really made us feel at home.

Food was great and was much more than typical pub food. Lots of the dishes are sort of typical pub food (sausages, burgers, etc.) but done in a more upscale fashion. Pretty reasonable prices, too, particularly when you see how much food you get.

Beers are also better than your typical brewpub lineup of pale ale, brown ale, blonde ale, wheat beer, etc. Though, they do have all of those styles as well. Lots of experimental stuff, some higher gravity beers. On the whole, well done.

Highly recommend a stop, even if youíre not going to get the VIP treatment.

A must-stop for one in the area. I canít really add much to what has already been said. Food is very good, service is very good, the prices are a bit steep, however (but worth it in my humble opinion).

Iíve visited the Normal location a couple times. The food is terrific, the beers are even better. The selection is always rotating, and the brews are unique. First visited in 2009.

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.

We stopped for lunch on a Friday afternoon heading to DLD 2014. There was a good crowd, but we were seated pretty quickly. We ordered two samplers and were able to sample about a dozen beers. Food was good as well as the service. Our waiter gave us all dessert beers, very nice. We decided to grab a growler of their Wild Sour Adambier, it was a hit at DLD. Well worth the trip.

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.

Dropped in on a Saturday afternoon during a rainout of a softball tourney. Decent beer selection, Redbird Ale was very good. Wife had an apricot ale that she said was decent.

Clean, sharp atmosphere. I visited in mid-afternoon and didnít have much competition for the bartenderís attention. We had a nice conversation about the beers, she seemed to be knowledgeable about their brewing process and such. They had 14 beers on tap in a wide range of styles, quite impressive I thought. The beers range from average to outstanding. Some of the brewing operation, including the barrels for the barrel-aged sours, is visible immediately behind the bar area, which I like. I ate the beer-battered bacon, which was silly and delicious, and a spinach salad, also quite tasty. I will definitely visit again next time I pass through through that area.
