(Visited 05/2010): Ram Restaurant/Big Horn Brewing is located in Schaumburg right off I-90 on McConner Pkwy. They have a fairly large lot. The inside is very spacious with high ceilings. The lounge/bar area is on the right and the restaurant seating area is on the left. There is a lot of brick along with red/brown colors and the place has a somewhat industrial feel. In the bar area the brewing equipment is visible, and there are large boards displaying the beers on tap. As for the beers, this location has more or less the standard "spiral" group of beers from the Hefe, Big Red IPA, 71 Pale, etc as well as a seasonal (Maibock). All of the beers are more or less average and are available in a sampler for $4. Service was decent on a weekday lunch. The bar server didnít seem overly knowledgeable about beer but was friendly. The food at Ram is pretty good, no complaints about my sandwich. Overall this is a decent stop along the highway but is pretty far down the list of Chicago-area beer spots.

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.

Lots of parking. Outdoor seating, if you can tolerate the wind. Decent indoors. Lots of big screen, flat panel TVs with sports on... mostly Cubs games, ESPN and such. Didnít eat. Most of the beer was over-attenuated and fairly bland, but the stout and hefeweizen were spot-on!

In Chicago area for some training, found this place by luck. The Beer is on tap, and nothing I have seen in bottles anywhere...Worth a stop for novelty alone. The beers were all pretty so-so. Nothing jumped out at me as being better then average. The food was incredible. Good place to eat.

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.

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.

Was brought here by some co-workers as itís one of their favorite local spots. A handful of year rounds on tap (I had the Big Red IPA) and a seasonal Maibock. The food menu is huge and varied.

Kind of a chain brewpub feel, but still pretty nice. Beers ranged from bad to just okay. Cheap flight of 7 for $4.95. Didnít eat. Free parking in a lot. Okay for ticks, and thatís about it.

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.
