Hands down best beer bar in the Cook County suburbs great rotating beer selection would even put it up with the best Chicago beer bars.I love The Tribes in Mokena which is the best south of I 80 and Tinley Park Tribes has even more to offer meaning seating and a few more beers on tap.Let me start with the beer list 54 of the best beers available and the selection changes daily so I know you won’t get bored here.The staff if very knowledgable in all of these beers just ask them also very friendly.The food is outstanding and the menu changes seasonally they also have some great events check out oyster fest did I mention that both locations share the same menu so you can’t go wrong with either location although both have different beer lists which is cool because you can explore both locations and be surprised with how awesome 100 draft selections between both locations is. Back to the food I urge you to try the Poutines and grab a filet cause Tribes has great steaks also the burgers are outstanding too get a bison burger you won’t regret it.Now for the ambiance Tribes Tinley is huge compared to Mokena it has an awesome patio you want a place to bring a group of friends this is the place although it can get pretty crowded just get your name in with hostess and head up to the bar grab a list and enjoy one of the best beer lists in the state very good descriptions of beers and if that doesn’t help just ask the bartenders they are glad to help you out.Overall one of my favorite places in Illinois to enjoy craft beer and food so check it out you won’t regret it.Your welcome!!!

Great place to hang out, get some good food and great selection of beer. Our shop did most of the tables for both the restaurants, and so I get run across quite a few people that have visited one of the Tribes and they always have nothing but good things to say. Its definitely worth checking out, you wont be disappointed.

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!

Love it! Same as The Tribes in Mokena just more space. I like the patio and the mural of the beer characters. Really pretty. I went to their beer fest her this summer and it was fab. Same great food menu and beer menu as the original bar.

One of the very best beer bar and restaurants I’ve ever been to. Larger than the Tribes in Mokena, but same fantastic beer, food, ambiance and service.

I AM REVIEWING BASED ON BEER. I HAVE NOT EATEN AT THE TINLEY LOCATION. I WILL REVISE OR RESUBMIT WHEN I DO. Well, I thought the beer list in Mokena was great, but this was every bit as good + had a few more offerings! Ambiance: Not as warm and inviting as Mokena, but for sure had a great feel. They are still fairly new and have time to fill up some empty wall space! But overall it is much larger and roomier than Mokena and has a pretty cool patio where I think they are growing hops? Service & Selection: Amazing. I had the opportunity to sit at the bar for a couple prior to moving to a table with some friends. The bartenders were pretty knowledgeable and approachable. No attitudes here. Server knew so much more about beer than almost any beer place i have been to. How refreshing is that! Food I will try next time but it looked good. I happened to be there after a Fest they had put on and there were the most outrageous beer selections i have seen in recent memory. Keep it up Tribes! Both Places!

This place is considerably larger than the location in Mokena. That can be both a curse or a blessing, depending on your needs. If you are looking for coziness, you likely won’t get it here as it is serves more than twice the amount of people as in Mokena. However, if you want to enjoy great food and beer with a larger party, this is the place to do it. It seems as though it is a struggle to get a table for more than 8 people in Mokena but not in TInley. I believe the food menu is the same, however they have more beers on tap and an engine (always a plus). The service is always above average and the beer knowledge is much better than many places traveled.

A much bigger and more comfortable location than thier other location with a huge beautiful bar. Pros: -Insane number of taps -They rotate their taps quickly -Speical tappings most Thursdays -The Lager & Cheese Dip and Tomato Fliorentine soup might be worth the trip. -Awesome fries -Pretzel roll buns!! Cons: -Odd menu layout. Why would Rouge Dead Guy or Kentucky Bourbon Ale be under the ’Cider, Lager, and Wheat’ heading? Boulevard Brainstorm was listed under ’Darks, Porter, Scots, and Stouts’. Its a Black IPA which I would think belongs more with the IPAs. There’s no point in having the headings if they aren’t accurate -Way too IPA heavy. -The beer pricing is a bit odd. Im not sure why Founders Dirty Bastard is $1 more than Founders Porters when its the same price for six packs or every other bar I’ve ever seen them at. I have a feeling alcohol content has a big factor on price. Overall higher than average beer pricing. -The east side of the bar can get so loud on the weekends its impossible to talk to the people at your own table -The food is very expensive -Vegetarians look elsewhere. The veggie burger is ok in a pinch but I couldn’t imagine paying what they are asking for the one or two other vegetarian items. $14 for stirfry vegetables? No way in hell. -Finding out the beer you wanted is out is a really bummer, I with they would cross those beers off the menu. -I noticed this at the last location but for some reason the service is great until you’ve been there a while and then they seem to forget about you.

Love this place. Great selection on the tap and menu. Bartenders and servers are so nice! Food seems expensive but worth it. They also have samplers for beer so you can try the flavor before ordering a large beverage. They turned me on to so many new beers :)

Awesome place in the south suburbs. Love the Mokena location but it is hard to beat the roominess at the Tinley location. Great selection of beer and the food is stellar. Prices are good considering the quality of the food and beer offerings. Just a great place to kick back and enjoy a beer or two and a very satisfying meal. This is a definite must try!
