Pretty much like every other of these commercial brewpubs in the suburbs. Their microbrews are below average, but the food selection and taste is excellent. The beer sampler is actually a damn good deal, would be better if the beer is better. You get 6, 4 oz. beers and 2 half filled 4oz seasonals for $1.99! The best beer was the Porter. The weiss beer was interesting because it was very banana tasting. The banana bread pudding dessert is insane.

I enjoy RAM. Itís just up the block from IKEA, so after a day of shopping itís a good place to kick up your feet. It gets a little loud in the smoking section (which is where the bar and multiple TVís are located), but thereís a small room with a fireplace tucked in the corner which is rather nice. (Smoking is also "seat yourself", so it can be a little daunting if youíve got a party of 6 on a weekend.) The food menu should please most people, from burgers and salads to fajitas and steaks. Their craft brews are all rather nice... my wife likes their Hefeweizen, but I swear by their "Total Disorder Porter". I always get a growler or two if Iím in the area. I believe refills are usually $7, but there are daily specials (last Fridayís refills cost a measly $4!) Definitely stop by if youíre close.

Visited on a Thursday right around noon. Cavernous restaurant/bar, ambience of a pretentious sports bar. Place was not busy, but it wasnít quiet either. Lots of televisions, an impressive visual display of alcohol on huge racks, and a very nice bar. Food was really good, buffalo chicken sandwich and great fries. Beer was mostly very good, with one excellent and one so-so, not a ton of selection but I am not sure what one is to expect from a brewpub. The braumeister himself gave us a free one because we were sampling, which, by the way, samples are really cheap. All in all, I have no idea why this place is rated so poorly, the beer is good and the food is good. Service was just a bit inattentive but I had a great experience and Iíll be back, whenever I happen to make it up Schaumburg again.

Itís cool place with a wide variety on tap, but the variety is really just in name. Most of the beers seem poured from the same tap. Didnít try the food. Friendly and helpful staff.

Canít say too much for the ambiance: another over size steel building with a sports bar in it, or a TGI Fridays, but with brewing equipment. They did have a nice burger menu, one of which went pretty well with the beers the served. Of note is the fact that a "Curl" (a sampler tray shaped like a ramís horn) cost $5 no matter how many beers they had on tap to sample. And I got 10 of íem. The brewer was a pretty friendly guy, and he did seem pretty happy with his setup. He did have the choice to make some big beers besides the mandated company recipes. They do schedule tapping events for their special beers, but their corporate webpage is very skimpy on details.

Neat little place. Bartender was super cool and the prices were pretty reasonable for chicago. Beer was ok. Nothing super special but all pretty drinkable. Probably wont be making any special trips but i would stop there again.

A brewpub/sportsbar/suburban/generic/ mall scavenger/ lifeless establishment. Yea they brew their own beer but they also have had one of the worst Barrel age beers ever, a Bourban barrel aged IPA that was good after one sip but did a serious dip after that. A fitting stop for any Ikea/ Woodfield mall shopper.

This place is OK. It is about as generic as you can get brewpub-wise. It is an enormous building, lots of TVs over by the bar area and less in the dining area. Staff was friendly. The food was extremely typical brewpub fair which is to say it was mostly gussied up hamburgers and salads plus some steaks and ribs and such. It was tasty though which is really less than I can say about the beer which were pretty bland or at least the six or so I had from the sampler. It is kind of annoying though that the glasses they sell are really large. I wish they had a 12 oz size or even a regular pint rather than 18 and 24 ozers. The prices were reasonable for the Chicago area, I thought, maybe a bit expensive for elsewhere considering the quality. I donít see myself going back any time soon but I didnít mind the place.

Nice atmosphere, good variety of beers. A big building too, with high ceilings. Very accepting. First visited in 2008. Some day I plan to return.

Food is the strong point at this place. Lots of food options to choose from, a lot of them good. Beer is pretty good, but the best part is that it is super cheap. You can get a 5oz sampler of all thier beers on tap (6) for 2 dollars. Beers are 3.75 for a 20 ounce glass. Growlers are 4 dollars on Fridays and in July. Cant beat that. Very generic place in the suburbs, with some unispired decor, but not bad if you are stuck out there in suburban hell.
