Was first introduced to this place by a friend, and recently went back. Went there around 2-3 in the afternoon on a Wednesday. Nice place, very broken in... old aged wood and wonky stools. Very friendly atmosphere, staff is great too. One regular had brought in some homemade gumbo we got to try. Prices are a little steep, but it is a bar. All in all, a great little hole in the wall with really great beers. I recommend the Moondance IPA and the Moonraker scotch ale.

I always enjoy my time whenever I go there. The bar is old-fashioned wood and glass, though not flashy. No matter what Charlie and Jim have put on tap, you can bet that the brew will be imaginative and daring. Even if the concoction that you sample may not be your style, it is expertly crafted. The bartenders know what they are talking about and have turned me on to countless brews from their stock that I otherwise would not have purchased. I absolutely love LunaR BrewinG.

This place is great. If you did not know it was there you would drive right by it. It truly is a hidden gem out in the burbs.
The beers they make are just wonderful! The staff is great and full of beer knowledge They have everything you could want from their own fine beers to micros to macros no one should leave this place with out being able to find a beer to drink. Live bands on the weekends makes this place a great hang out This is what a bar should be.

The prototypical corner dive bar but this one is a brewery and has a craft beer selection that will blow your mind.

This place is great! Admittedly, hard to find - but I kind of like that. Drove past it for literally years thinking it was just another neighborhood dive bar. But itís not. It is simply the best neighborhood beer bar in the Western Suburbs of Chicago. All of their in-house brews are good, and you could drink off the bottle menu for a long time without repeating or getting bored. To keep the college kids and beer neophytes happy they do serve macros - but the only mention is a cryptic line about domestic bottles on the beer menu. Bartenders are friendly and knowledgeable. Ambience is dark and cozy - love the wooden coolers. I give this place such high ratings because a) itís very rare to find a beer menu like this in a neighborhood bar and b) itís my neighborhood bar (now that Iím in the know). Also - old reviews give lots of marks off due to smoke issues - this should no longer be a problem due to the smoking ban.

Okay, so Iíve only gone in on Friday afternoons. But, Iíve been impressed with the simple atmosphere--itís a bar. It doesnít try to be anything else and staff. I can see how smoke is an issue, itís small and can get crowded quickly, but if you can make an afternoon, itís a great time to try what theyíve got. And what theyíve got has been great. The beers are excellent.

Been there twice, off hours on a weekday. Once during a Sox game, once not. Neither time the bar was crowded. Didnít eat. Service was magnificent both times. This is a beer drinkers bar.

Visited on a mid-week, mid-day. This places smacks of a cool old neighborhood bar turned brewpub. There was a small contingent of seemingly local regulars and a very friendly barkeep. If not for the fact that we had to drive on to other destinations, I couldíve spent much time here. With an impressive lineup of house beers (the few we tried were good), but they also had a kick-ass selection of guest taps. Brewery #507.

Went here for the Feb 2007 Chicago Area gathering. Nearly missed this place 3 times as I drove by. Its a wharehouse old looking building that is on the North side of the street. Drove by it 3 times before getting in there. Parking lot and street parking easily available. Its your typical corner bar in your typical neighborhood. Dark, woody and very very smoky. One person was smoking in the place and I had the smell on me for a while. There are a couple TVs and a stage in back where it looks like they have music. The house beer is much better than average. Definately check out the Moondance IPA. Wonderful. Had about 6-7 of their own beer on tap and multiple better-than-phenominal guest taps including GOOSE ISLAND IIPA. They also have an extensive bottle selection. My only complaint about this place other than the smoking is that growlers cost on average >$25. Definately worth the trip out here.

I went here two nights in a row and found it was worth it. It looks like a hole in the wall bar, but has no BMC. It is hard to find as I drove one night, right past it. The next night, a cabbie also drove right past it, even with his in car guidance system. First, I went on a Saturday night, a live band was playing with friendly locals as well as the staff. I went again on a Sunday night and also had an entertaining time. The bar was surprisingly empty on both trips. i am amazed that so few people frequent this bar. The brewpub beers were well above average and I was impressed. They also had a solid guest tap list as well as bottles. Possibly the best beer bar in the Chicago area other than the Maproom.
