Just a small bar at the brewery serving its own beers and no food (but you can bring your own). Typical industrial park location but one of the nicer industrial parks I have visited. Would be nice to sit on the patio on a warm day and watch the trains roll down the Union Pacific.

Pretty standard looking and feeling place. More of a neighborhood bar feel: wood paneling, long bar area, some bar tables, a couple TVs, a small "patio" area. The staff is friendly, although didnít get a chance to probe knowledge. They have a decent tap selection for one of the "smaller guys." The fact that theyíre right next to the train station is nice and convenient.

Wharehouse spot hard to find, but worth the trip. All the beers are top notch, perfect 5oz pour sizes and price, friendly staff. If in the area its a must stop.

A bit tough to find and almost as tough to get a seat as it was trivia night. Decent amount of beers on tap served by a very cute and friendly bartender. The beer was okay, might have had more if it wasnít time to call it a night.

Interesting newish place in the industrial area by the Metra. Very, very clean with a smallish (12 seat) bar and a series of pub tables with a patio out in the parking lot. 8 taps with a range of Tighthead brews. I would go back. Jan says cleanest bathrooms in Lake County, and they were.

Stopped out here during my NW suburban sojourn. Clean industrial park spot with unassuming vibe, sports on a couple of flat screens, window into the brewery. Great place to sample out the beers. They are exclusively Tighthead beers and eventually theyíll have 10-12 on once they get up to capacity. Nice and quiet spot. Iíll be back for sure. Samplers available.

Brewery tap room has long bar and a few tables for seating. "max occupancy" listed as 66. I counted 32 people, and it was loud and seemed crowded. All six of their offerings were on tap, and they hope to someday have (12?). They have been open a month, and in the five or six times I have been there, they have usually been pleasantly crowded. Good for them. They do not have food, but offer menus from local delivery places, and encourage you to bring in your own food. Saturday afternoons offer brewery tours, usually with the owner or brewmaster leading them. And those guys are often tending bar as well. My girlfriend says "best bathrooms in lake county". Nice guys, hope they do well.

Stopped by on a Friday at 2, they werenít technically open, but they still let me in gave me a look see of the operation, talked brews for a bit and gave me a growler fill.
Solid folks, all of their beers are on tap, but thatís it. More than a tipcal brewery bottle shop, they have a nice bar area, will serve you pints and shoot the breeze in front of a ball game if your in the mood. I will soon become a regular fixture!
