I grew up in Bloomington/Normal so when I was back in town for a wedding I wanted to finally hit this place up. Neither my parents or my sister thought it was anything special, and I agree. I have been too spoiled by Rock Bottom Chicago. The food although it sounded good...was average at best. All the beer seemed watered down and a little thin to me. I got the rotational sampler and the server couldnít tell me what any of the beer was. When he did return he pointed at one and said it was like Bud Light and said another was like Bud Light Lime and he still had no idea what the names were. If I was the brewer I would be pissed.

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.

it was alright. they had a really great looking food selection, but the execution was pretty average. Theyíre trying really hard to be an upscale place but its just kind of a hodge-podge.

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.

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).

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!
