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 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.

(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.

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.

A converted train station, this big bar with a nice dining area is refreshingly fun without being tacky. Service was very good and efficient. Food was hearty and relatively cheap. Huge beer selection, with most above average. A great stop that is easy, pleasant and has lots of room.

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.

Visited in the summer of 2008. Had a few killer Flossmoor brews, and the wait staff seemed to be fairly knowledgable. Itís out there in the deep íburbs, but well worth the trip.
