Place seems to want to be a yuppie cigar bar that just happens to brew beer. And with that kind of palate-killing atmosphere, itís no wonder they also have a full line of BMC available. A change of brewmasters still hasnít improved the mostly mediocre selection. Prices are at least reasonable, and the sandwiches are pretty good. But still, one of the most beer-unfriendly brewpubs Iíve found. Iíve been to places that had worse beer, but I would prefer them to this place.

Like everyone else, Iíve noticed Harrisonís "personality crisis." Itís somewhere between a Fridays and something trying to be more upscale. But, Iíve never been diappointed when Iím in there, and the Black Diamond Stout is a personal fav. Of course, itís been...jese, three years? Guess Iíll have to make an excuse to go back.

Damn, the south/west Chicago suburbs are in dire need of a brewpub. What, you call this place a brewpub? Looks like a Ruby Tuesday or something, one of those stand-alone blocky brick buildings in the middle of a huge mall parking lot. OK, Iíll bite. Hmmm all the waitresses and most of the patrons are hot young women, thatís cool...except they all seem to have fake tans and breasts and sound like theyíre on helium. Oh, the beer? Eight samples, cheap, reasonably sized...and not one that I would try again. Two fruit beers usually is a dead giveawy. Another proof that suburban Chicagoland is a beer wasteland....

I enjoy Harrisons atmosphere which is half sports bar/cigar bar and half simulated-upscale dining. Their food menu is moderately priced, and I recently enjoyed a decent cut of Prime Rib.

Our server was knowledgable about Harrisonís beers, steering my wife away from their regular wheats towards their seasonal Hefe, which, while not the best-ever tasted, was still rather refreshing.

After visiting Harrisonís time and again over the last few years, Iíve come to realize that nobody involved really cares about the beer. All it will take is an inexpensive sampler flight to figure that out, but you can also tell in their lack of rotation and insistince in keeping macro brews on hand. Plus (whether or not it was by their own accord) something got them removed from the Illinois Craft Brewers Guild and that seems like a bad sign.

Those big brewkettles seem almost like a novelty... like the faux props of Gotham when youíre waiting in line for Batman the Ride.

Gotta agree with the others. The beers are mediocre at best and none of the servers know a thing about them. The food is pretty sad, too. On the other hand, they did have a Davy Jones (yes, the Monkee) book signing this past Saturday. Somehow, even though Iím only twenty minutes away, I missed it.

Last time I was there, the waitress tried to encourage me to have a Bud, Amstel light or MGD. What does that say?

Avoid, really, at all costs. Just terrible beer, tgiFridays kind of food, zero ambiance. Take the extra time to drive over to Flossmoor.
