Visited here a few months ago and had a great time. Went with a large group and all enjoyed the chance to do flights and experiment with many styles of beer. This place has a great tap list with plenty of local Midwest beers as well as a very solid bottle list. I am really amazed this place does not rank higher...or is it that the fans who enjoy it donít write reviews? I highly recommend a visit to Geneva and the Ale House when there. The food is quite good for a beer place, and although the ambiance wonít blow you away...the great people here and the fine beers should easily provide for an enjoyable experience.

Fine rotating selection of taps, including some seldom seen in this area. I first visited right when they opened and the owners and bar staff were very willing to hear input on beer selections. Have been back a number of times since then and have brought out-of-town beer geeks - one of the few places around here I would take them. One big plus is the lack of wall-to-wall TVís. Sometimes a pub should be just a pub without the distraction of 24/7/365 sports blaring out at you. A fine place for beer or food if youíre willing to pay the typical Fox valley big-city prices.

I have been here twice, and both times enjoyed myself here. They have a beer list that is deep enough to keep you happy(though not so deep to blow you away), and the food has always been awesome. It is located right in downtown Genevea and is a good place to stop and then walk around afterwards to work off the stuffing. Ambiance is nice, there are a few TVs but it is still pretty cozy all around.

Visited for an early lunch on a Sunday with the family and the place was empty upon opening, and only had one patron when we left around noon. Aside from that I was pleasantly surprised. Nice list of taps with a some unique offerings. Three Floydís Zombie Dust was real good. Lunch menu had an array of dolled up burger options. The burgers were well cooked and delicious. A great option in Geneva. Prices were on the high end.

I visited this place with a few buddies of mine where we played cards for a few hours. Warm color tones with modest darkened wood walls and bar set the bar ambiance to a pretty comfortable level. High tables as well as normal height tables can be found within this bar. Servers were friendly and somewhat knowledgeable about the brews they were carrying. The on draft selection is one of the better ones for the area. Plenty of rarer brews with prices generally ranging in the $6-8 for an honest pint. The place closes whenever the final patron decides to leave. Website is pretty well up to date with whats being served on tap. I didnít eat hear but they do serve somewhat fancy foods for dinner and lunch. Menuís can be found online. Nice selection of beers will definitely be bringing me back.
