Nice place. They still are trucking the beer in, so they don’t have a seasonal yet. Otherwise, the server seemed pretty knowledgeable... and explained each beer to me in detail (although no explanation was needed). The food was unexpectedly good, even though I just took their burger special. One downside is the beer prices are a little steep.

This is indeed a great place if you like German style lagers. NOTE: My review is based on the beers they had at open which were brewed and trucked in. I have yet to drink beer actually brewed in Bolingbrook. Ambiance: Since this chain is now owned by Tennessee folk versus Californian, a bit more folksy than slick. But a place that is welcoming for taking a date, your family or work associates. Probably a bit too "sterile" to take the softball team after a game. Service: I had very good, almost overly attentive service in my two visits. But overly attentive sure beats nonexistent. Selection: Great if you like German Lagers. See Cornfields list below. The one he miss is a Czech Lager, a Pilsner that has a nice hoppy backbone to it. I agree with his comments - they are both true to style and tasty. Food: The crown jewel of GB. Sushi, Calamari, Garlic Fries, this brewpub menu has its tuxedo on and is ready to deliver. With Emmett’s downscaling its menu, this may have Chicago highest quality brewpub fare. Overall: I am pleased to have GB here. It is a great alternative with all the German beers.

The Lure: A new brewpub in the area serving fresh German styled beers, an attraction to this son of a Transylvanian Saxon.

The Arrival: A well-scrubbed Denny’s of a place (except for the brewing area) smack dab in the center of a shopping mall, filled with busy shoppers drinking their sodas.

The Tease: A full-figured buxom hostess; a slender-yet-buxom assistant hostess; a female mixologist with pretty eyes; Beer.

The Victuals Realized: The usual pubgrub, and yet my fish and chips was properly accompanied by a bottle of malt vinegar without my asking. Tasty garlic fries (i.e., my chips).

The Nectar Realized: Solid German beers, not exciting, but true to style and tasty. No seasonals yet because of their rush to open the place, but on tap was a Dortmunder, a Märzen, a Schwartzbier, a Hefeweizen, and something else that eludes my mind at the moment.

The Overall Mystique: A decent enough place if your like German styled beers, which I do. (But as many of you know, I pretty much like anything called "Beer.") I don’t know that I’d go out of my way to visit again, but would certainly stop back if in the area.

The Aftermath: Why the frak am I writing like this?!?!?
