Impressed with my initial visit to the brewpub. Good quality beer. Very ambitious food menu with interesting items. Offers multiple pour sizes (5oz,10oz,pint). Located in a beautifully refurbished mansion near center of town. Worth a visit if you are in Springfield. Town was overdue for a good brewpub. Guest taps when I was there were not that interesting but have read that they often feature other quality Illinois breweries.

Went to visit a friend in Illinois and he recommended this place.
On a Saturday before St Paddyís day, this is an exceptionally happening place. The service was exceptionally quick with the amount of people in there and the three beers I had seemed to be priced right. All were true to style, though the hefeweizen wasnít poured into a weizen glass. This company still pulled it off. Nicely done, I know I would go back.

Stopped in today for the second time. The first time we brought our dog and this is a very dog friendly establishment. They proved that to be fact. This is a very old house that is just around the corner from Lincolnís house. It is a cool old place and if you look you can find some of the subtleties of the old original structure. The beers I have had have been solid if unremarkable. Today was a stout that I am pretty sure was on nitro. Also had a Frothbite. Again, solid if not great. Food has been good both times. This is a place that my wife does not mind going to because of the food. They also have a pretty full bar and wine. No other beers are available.

What a great surprise pop-up visit, for a nice lunch with Mom and Dad on a Wednesday in August. This place is set within a couple cool historic houses right in downtown Springfield. Pretty small inside, but lots of space outside. The service was OK, but the beers ranged from average at the rare low end, to quite good and original. And the food was very, very good. Overall a great stop and highly recommended. (Brewery #620)

Stopped in on a weekday afternoon. Lot of folks eating lunch, which the menu had a wide selection of food. Something for everyone. We sat at the bar, and the bartender was on top of things. She explained all their beers, where the brewery was located and the process they were going through to add an outdoor beer garden. Construction was going on while we were there. The selection of beers, about 11, were decent. Tried a couple of their flights, and not a bad beer on either one. Will definitely stop in again and hope to check out their beer garden.

Superb place in Springfield to have a couple of beers with friends or a great tasty dinner with a group. Historic house moved to this location to preserve Springfield architectural history. Usually 10-14 self brewed beers on tap. Pulled pork special is the best item on menu along with pizzaís.

Nice place in downtown Springfield, a stoneís throw from the capitol building and right next door to the Lincoln home national historic site. Brewpub seems to be 3 or 4 connected buildings. Cozy atmosphere with a lot of wood and original brickwork. Decent sized patio out front where you can eat and drink in the warm weather. They had a dozen different house beers on tap, many of which were special small batch offerings. Very reasonably priced - four 5-oz samplers were $6; pints were around $4.25. Beer was hit or miss, but all of it showed great potential. Food was good and also reasonably priced - we ordered two flatbread pizzas made with spent grain that were very tasty. Serving staff was very friendly and understanding (I was there with the wife and my 3-year old and infant sons.) Iíll definitely come back whenever Iím in the area.

Way cute place in downtown Springfield. Located in a historic house, still with what seems like original brick walls and everything. 8 of their own beers on tap plus 3 guest taps. First beer I have here is very good - Mother Road APA. Look forward to more. Also just ordered the leg of lamb sandwich, sounds good! Definitely a great little local place if you are in town. I believe it's the only microbrew pub around here.

Connected building in downtown Springfield. Didnít see the whole thing. Lots of wood. Server was friendly, didnít describe beers well (too basic - perhaps she was used to customers who didnít understand beer?) Food I had was good. Had about 10 of their beers available, wide variety of styles.

Stopped in while visiting the area a few months ago. Very nice building and decor. Service and food were very good. Beer selection was limited. Was fairly busy. Well worth the visit.
