Stopped in with the wife and was pleasently surprised as from the outside it does not look like much. Mostly local crowd. Had 5 of their own beers on tap. Had the IPA and was very good. Solid guest taps with brews like 3F Moloko and Rogue Imperial Red. 40 or so other bottled beers available and it seems they rotate them frequently. Lot of dark wood and cool place to chill and have some good brews. Bartenders were awesome as they let my wife try several samples before choosing what beer she wanted. If I were to own a bar I would want something like this. To bad there is nothing like this in my area.

Awesome place, better than expected. Cozy corner bar atmosphere with good service. Big old bar with a cool wood doored fridge in the back that’s probably been there as long as the building. Good variety of in-house beers and a nice selection of high quality guest taps and bottles. If I lived nearby I would be a regular. Look for the entrance on the northwest corner of St. Charles Road and Illinois Ave. Park in back or on the nearby streets.

Lunar is a hidden gem in an area where there arent many other beer options. Their BA Batch 500 recently took gold at FoBAB 08, so that should tell you something about the quality of their brews. Last weekend I went in for a growler of Xmas in the Carribean, a mango infused pale ale. Very accessible and tasty, with real mango character. It has a quirky atmosphere with its own crowd of regulars and live music on weekend nights. Guest taps often have a few gems, and they recently redesigned their bottle list, which is a big improvement.

This is a great bar. If you want micro brews in bottles or some of their own micro brews on tap, then this is your place. The staff is really great and I can talk to them for hours. The locals are also great and I plan on making the long drive out there many more times just to hang out here. Kristen, you rock and I look forward to another refill!

Smoke appears to be a real complaint about this place. I went on a Saturday afternoon and there was no smoke so I suggest if you can make it at that time you should. On with the review. This place was fascinating. Hard to believe that such a selection of fine beer can be made from such a small brewpub. I got the tour and it lasted less than a minute. I told you it was small. All beers sampled were very good. The best was the Scotch Ale served in a 21 oz. thistle glass, it was outstanding. If you get a chance you have to make here.

Great neighborhood watering hole with a solid brewery and great beer selection. Local-centric dive with a no pretentiousness , and folks that are proud (rightfully so) of their establishment. In house brews are very good, and it’s easy to feel like a local in this place.

Stopped in to try a few beers on the way to a wedding. Sign was so warn out, almost missed. Feel of an old 60s bar that hasn’t changed much at all. Was empty on my visit but service was fine. Had about 6 of their own taps plus a number of guest brews. Some snacks available. Beer made it worth the stop and at nice prices.

Kind of a dive joint, but a pretty cool place. Awesome selection of guest taps, but I mostly kept to the Lunar beers. Their IPA was a bit "different", but really good. I could not put my finger on what was unique with it, but it was delicious. I also tried their Oktoberfest and a Belgian Pale Ale, both of which were very good. No food that I could see and the bartender was accommodating, but not overly friendly. Prices on par with the Chicago ’burbs. Overall a really cool place and went twice in two days while in the Villa Park area for work.
