Stumbled in during happy hour, when they had free pizza, sausage and peppers, nachos with tons of topping, and of course, beer. It was comfortably crowded with a great vibe, good service despite the crowds. Range of beers available was well above average, and all were solid to outstanding. A must-stop on any itinerary near Chicago.

Visited 7/30/2010 and again on 10/12/2010. More recently I stopped in for dinner with my aunt and uncle after GTMW 2012.

The first time was right around dinner time so it was pretty full and noisy. I did get a seat at the bar however. The girl at the bar was too busy talking to one of the patrons to help me much but I got my sampler and ordered a burger.

The food was alright, not bad but nothing to write home about. The beer was mostly average but there were a couple of exceptions like Slump Buster Mild, Tree Hugger Organic Chocolate Brown, and Vishnuís Vice.

Moving around was difficult (walking to the bathroom or just trying to leave the place) as people were everywhere.

The sampler wasnít priced too high and neither was the food. I think between the two my tab would have been $18. But then I got a bottle of the .357 Imperial Pilsner and Vishnuís Vice to go and my tab came back at $40something. Good lord.

The second time was late and on a Tuesday night. There were 2 or 3 people at the bar and one table full of noisy drunk people, not that I have a problem with that. At least they were playing good music on the juke box. Got to try a nice glass of the Inner Sanctum IPA.

Would go back to try whatís new or if in the area.

The beer from the new brewer is pretty good... lets not rip him too much. N/A on the food, though the bar nut mix was tasty. Nice atmosphere with a rumbling train behind the building. Canít comment on parking since I visited at 11pm on a Sunday night. Seems to be in a very ritzy part of town.

(Visited 02/2011): Made the nearly two hour drive from the northwest suburbs of Chicago to visit Flossmoor. The brewpub is located on Sterling right next to some train tracks and sits up a short hill of a circle. Parking is fairly abundant on the streets in all directions. The inside stays with the train theme and offers a view of the brewing equipment right at the entrance. The bar is straight back and there is table seating through the rest of the space. Available beers are posted in the bar area. As for the beers they have around 12 on tap and they are available in a sampler. Bottled Flossmoor brews are located in a small cooler to go as well, and I assume they can be consumed on premise too. Service on a moderately busy weekday evening was good. The server had a good grasp of the beers on tap and was attentive throughout my meal. Flossmoorís food menu is fairly eclectic and they appear to do different "theme" foods. Typical appetizers, soups and sandwiches are augmented with gigantic burritos, fajitas, perch dinners etc. My food was enjoyable. Overall I am happy to have made the trip here and would visit again if given the chance.

Visited just as they were opening on a Friday. Set in a cool location (an old train station), our hopes were high, given this placeís reputation. We didnít eat, but sampled all the beers -- and unfortunately we were a little disappointed. Although none of them were bad, none of them really stood out either. The menu seemed to be pretty standard American fare, too. Seems like a lot of people (us too) go in combination with a drive to Three Floyds ... definitely save yourself for the much better stop down the road in Munster IN. Brewery #509.

Welcoming very large pub just by the train station. Comfortable place to drink in despite the rather upscale appearance. Not particularly agreeable service, our waitress quickly went to count her tip as soon as we paid and otherwise did not seem all that fond of smiling. I did enjoy their beer and cheddar soup and a very honest sandwich, both of which felt above average for pub food. As far as the beers are concerned, on top of 3 bottles that they had available for take out (Iíd hoped for more), they had 10 beers on draught and unfortunately, none of the very special experiments. Iíve tried some in the past and they were satisfying indeed. Iíd definitely be back, but for this one visit, I was not overly impressed with most of their regular stuff which were mostly hoppy versions of their styles. I guess Iíd have to come at Dark Lord Day to fully appreciate. We came around dinner time and the place held 20 patrons at best while it can certainly welcome well over a hundred.

This is a small venue next to residences, post office, library in a historic-type building. This place was busy even at 4:00pm on Thursday. They were temporarily out of the stout and nothing that would normally cry for my attention was available. There is an excellent view of the train which passes by just a few yards from the large window. Everytime the train went by, the drunks would stop their conversation to yell, "Train!". I enjoyed the place very much, but was a little sad that most of their more exciting brews were not on draught at that time. Of course, it was the middle of summer and therefore I was expecting lighter brews.

I found parking to be easy, but it was about 2PM and the place was dead slow. An old train station and the restaurant looks good. Didnít eat. Had a sampler with 5 good beers. Bottles to go with some limited selections. Everything seems pricy. Bartender was nice and helpful. Iíll be back when Iím in the area.

My first and only visit to this legendary brewpub was on the pre-Dark-Lord-Day 2008 party. I donít know how the place is on normal business days but Iíll tell you what I experienced. First the pub is big, much bigger than I expected. Itís got a bar/resto section in the front, a restaurant section in the middle and another section that can be used for special events/parties or just opened to add sitting places on busy days. All total this pub can probably sit over 200 people. Food menu is quite extensive for a brewpub. I drank so much that I ordered food twice in the same night and both times it was very good. The beer quality and selection met my expectations and my expectations were very high with this place. The had a bunch of special rare/barrel-age beers on tap for the pre-DLD, many of them truly were excellent but I found the best one to be their excellent Pretty Big IPA that was serve as a regular beer (not part of the special pre-DLD selection). If you are in the Chicago area you need to make yourself a favour and go in the south suburbs and do Flossmoor and Three Floyds, theyíre not that far apart and they are two of the best brewpubs you can find.

I finally made it out here after realizing its only a 10 minute drive from one of suburban offices. A very cool location, a total small town atmosphere in the middle of no-where, easy parking out front and right by a metra stop for easy and safe travel from downtown. You walk in and the first thing I think is I canít believe how big this place is, a huge bar area, then a dining room, then a separate dining room attached there. We were seated in the main dining room, which was a bit of a downer as being the first weekend of college football, only had one tv which was turned to White Sox baseball. The place itself is a little on the older looking side without much decorations but has a certain homey feel to it. Selection wise they had 6-8 beers that are always on tap (50-50 good and garbage) and they had limited or seasonals. Thatís a big plus in my book, sadly no one offs or anything super special. The server was nice, but mildly helpful or knowledgable about beer. We ordered a sampler which was a good variety of beer, and awesomely included every beer of theirs they had on tap. The regular beers even had a laminted map that pointed to the beer and had a nice descirption. Very useful but for those who donít know what beer to drink in what order probably not too helpful for them. The food was above average bar food and there was a huge selection. I was very surprised by this place, it exceeded my expectations in all ways and is a place I highly recommend depsite beers that are VERY hit or miss.
