I have been living in the South suburbs of Chicago for over 10 years now. And only in the last 4 years have I been turned on to craft Beer. And that was because of Tribes Alehouse! I am writing this review for Mokena and Tinley because I believe them to be the same in all aspects except for sheer size. I have been an avid fan and supporter of the Tribes and tell all of my friends that this is the best place for craft Beer - bar none - in all of Chicagoland. They have 42 handles of awesomeness in Mokena and 54 tappers in Tinley Park. They are pretty much the only place to be able to get Three Floyds products consistently. Great events, service, atmosphere, food and beer!

Without question, my fave place to meet with my friends or BF to drink good beer and snack on some tasty food. Yeah, its small and yeah its in a boring strip mall. But its in the suburbs what do you expect? The main thing is that they have an incredible beer list that changes like every day! The bartenders are really helpful and always know their stuff. If this place was in the city it would rival even the best! The room has really cool beer decor on the walls and the they hang all of their tap handles on a wall and it looks really awesome. They always have cool events going on too... Defintely a great place to go.

Nice, cozy beer bar with some very tasty food. If you are looking for a great steak this is the place. Very good selection of all types of beers. They do have the games on the tvs but not a sports bar which is nice. Definitely worth the trip out. Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable

New to RateBeer and joined just to make sure I start voicing my opinions on the great and not so great beer bars in Chicago-land! The Tribes Mokena has been my go to place for the last 4 years. It has like 45 rotating tap handles with no BMC on draft at all. They seem to focus a little heavily on IPAs but thats OK by me for the most part. However it seems like in the last year or so, they have been spreading out to include more Belgian style saisons and sours which is really cool too. The place is located in a strip mall which when you arrive could be off-putting, but once you step inside, you feel like you disappeared in to a downtown Chicago Saloon. Except thereís no sarsaparilla! (Maybe they should??) Beer tackers and tappers adorn the walls and the back bar tappers with the copper sheeting is incredible and makes you just want to sample everything! Food is far better than normal pub grub. And you can indulge in beer-centric foods like charcuterie ^ cheese boards. But really the beer list is killer. I hope they stick around a long time!

This place is a gem! I am just getting into craft beer and the staff here are mighty knowledgeable and helpful when needing to be "schooled." The blackened catfish sandwich with mango salsa was delicious! Canít wait to attend their special tappings on Wednesdays!

This place is comfy and cozy for the craft beer lover. Especially at the bar. My preferred place to sit and both drink and dine. The beers never disappoint. Usually a well balanced list of IPAs (my favorite) along with Belgians, stouts and the likes. Probably the most affordable steakhouse in the area. Iím talking high quality. I would put one of these up against one served at Sullivanís or Gibsonís. The staff are both friendly and knowledgeable about beers. That is a breath of fresh air among the many bars that claim to offer craft beers yet know nothing about them. If you have any doubts about trying a new style, ask for a sample. They seem to be very quick to offer a sample for your palate. I wouldnít miss this place if you are in the area and looking for a great place for eats and beers. CHEERS!

Best beer selection in the area, by far. Great food, good mix of traditional and upscale pub grub. Service has always been outstanding.
