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.

Ughsmash  (138) Pewaukee, Wisconsin | January 14, 2008
This was a cool, warm little bar with a small concert venue. When I was there in mid-2007, they were out of several of the house beers, so only 4 or 5 were on tap at the time (although it sounds like they usually have more). Service was very good, and the smoke level was low because it was early in the evening (that shouldnít be a factor at all with the smoking ban). Iíd love to spend more time and get to know this place better.

This place was great. If you love the feel of a towny bar with a great selection this is the place for you. They had a great variety of imports and macros and their own brews were great too. The bartender was friendly and helpful. I didnít see a waiter/waitress around but maybe it is just the bartender. Not a lot of seating and not a ton of parking but if youíre in the area this is a must visit.

Visited 9/29/07, after running around to local bottle shops in the area. Lunar is easy to miss...we drove right past it before realizing it. Came around the block and parked in back. Nice, considering that thereís minimal on street parking. The place shows itís age but is not run down. A dark atmosphere with a nice selection of homebrewed taps as well as some guest taps, such as Two Brothers, Franziskaner, GI, etc. Also, a nice selection of bottles including a WAY underpriced Mikkeller Beer Geek Breafast. When I saw the price, I asked how they were making any money on it. The bartenderís reply..."weíre not". So I bought two to bring home. Lunch consisted of Tombstone pizza but the bartender gave us the option of bringing food in from someplace else. It was nice to have the option but we just settled for some pizza. The jukebox had a wide range of great music, from all different genres. My nephew chose some U2 while I played some Ray Charles. All good stuff on the box. One of the "regulars", who lived in the neighborhood, had the 411 for us on everything from samplers (which were not technically available, but provided for us, none the less), to food options. They should put her on the payroll. A nice place to stop and spend an hour or two.

SubstanceT  (114) Saint Louis, Missouri | February 11, 2007
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.

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.

Talk about non descript. You should know the address because you will drive right by it. A typical looking corner tavern but clean and a treasure of beers, not just theres. Greeted friendly and helpful. $ of there own beers on tap as well as Maudite and Lindemannís Kriek. The 1960ís style cooler held a myriad of fine brews, from local micros to well aged barleywine. This place hosts bands, regulars and even a cool nfl day as locals will sometime bring in there own buffet, in which they shared with me, a newcomer. The only draw back was it was quite smokey due to ajust a few puffers. Loved the beer, and non typical micro atmosphere, but the cigarette smoke was a turn off.

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.

My first impression of this place was SMOKE. Thatís my big knock on it. I arrived at around 6pm on a Thursday evening, and the place was covered in a haze of smoke, including a guy smoking a cigar. I canít wait until Chicago enacts the smoking ban. Dark, dingy bar with 2 TV screens. A good selection of house brews and a quality selection of bottles that includes Alpha King, some DFH, etc. A little spendy. $4 a pint for the house brews? I had the Moondance IPA and it was excellent and worth $4, but I can go to Town Hall in Mnpls and be assured world class beer for $3.50/pint. Bottles were steep at around $4 per as well. I couldnít handle the smoke so I didnít stick around for a second beer. I should have asked if they had a sampler, but I forgot. I will be back for sure when and if they enact the smoking ban.

redlem  (77) Ohio | February 8, 2006
Unassuming place, I drove by it once thinking it was just like any other local scrub bar. Totally local feel, no pretenses about being a brewpub except that they make good beer, and they do. Their bitter and IPA are better than the brewers who sell bottles here in IL, IMO. Microwave popcorn was the best selling food. Not that far off the highway and worth a stop.

If more brewpubs were like this I think that more people would come over to drinking the local brews instead of the national brands. my Idea of heaven would be to have a Lunar in every town brewing its own local beer.......oh wait thats Europe
