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.

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.

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!

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.

Cliff  (72) The Land of Milk and Honey, Ohio | October 4, 2012
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.
