This review is going to stick to the quality of the experience of the brew pub food and atmosphere and the brewery tour.
A place thats a little hard to find but just follow the directions on their website and youíll find it easily. Hard to find the actual entrance though. A pretty nice brewpub, wharehous feel. The food was really good, recommend most things there.
The beer selection on taps sucks as its just their year round beers, which suck, and only 2 seasonals of their. If you are a prebub have some unique stuff brothers.
Bottle selection is varied and nice.
The tour is pretty good, its free takes about 45 minutes and you get 3 free samples at the end. The problem is its heavy on backstory of the brothers, which was mildly fascinating and short on actual brewing.
The brewery is really nice, you can tell these guys have some money.
Its worth a Saturday afternoon trip to eat lunch then go on the tour. Do not go to drink good beer as there is very little of that there, and its lack the creativity of one offs and special brews that most brew pubs have.

An excellent place to go for a meal or drink. Ambiance is nothing fancy. Beer selection is excellent. They always have one of their beers cask conditioned on the weekend. In addition to their usual lineup there is an excellent bottle selection representing not only other domestic craft brews but heavy on the Belgians. The food is always excellent from the bar food to the specials that Chef Tommy makes. Highly recommended.

Hard to find. Kind of a sparse, industrial feel. Noisy. Service is variable...some nights quick and attentive and some slow and disinterested. Would like to see a larger menu and more seasonal beers. Love the Cane and Ebel!

Beer is meh, but the patio and eating area are nice. A really odd location in a business park. Has a nice bottle of selection for you to pick if you do not want to drink their beer.

This is easily the biggest let down of a "brewpub" Iíve ever been to. Mostly because it was nothing more than a place to peddle their normal beers. I donít get the impression that they do any experimental batches here, which is a shame. It really is a beautiful brewery, but such a letdown...

My first visit was on March 29, 2008 and it was NOT the last! I just wish this place was closer to my house.The Taphouse is tucked away in light industrial neighborhood. The most confusing part is that they do not have a sign on the building and it looks like a warehouse.
So getting to the important point. The beer is excellent! Some of my favorites:
Bitter End American Pale Ale,
Cane & Ebel Red Rye Ale,
Northwind Imperial Stout,
Long Haul Ale
The last two are from the foudre (french oak vat) that Two Brothers obtained last year. These are very unique beers.
The beer is served at a good temperature. It is not too cold like you find at some of the chain brewpubs.
If you like portable, they do have growlers so you can take some of their beer with you.
The Taphouse also stocks a pretty wide selection of bottled craft brews. I prefer my beer from the tap if I can get it, so I have never tried any of their bottles.
The food menu is limited, but it contains the pub grub basics. They have made an effort to serve organic ingredients in several items. You can get an organic beef hamburger! I did and it was very tasty. I also love that they have sweet potato fries. The few things that I have tried have been good, but I tend to think of this place for beer rather than food.
We like to sit at the bar at this place because the rest of restaurant feels a little sterile and industrial. Donít get me wrong, I am not suggesting that it should be filled with neon signs and TV screens, because I hate those places. I just think it needs a little more coziness.
The bartenders at the Taphouse tend to be a little surly. They are helpful, but their personalities are an acquired taste.
Overall, I like the Two Brothers Taphouse. The beer is very good. There is enough rotation to keep me interested in coming back to try new things and even if I donít like the new, the old favorites are there to keep me happy.
I have been to this place several times and I will continue to do so.

May 2010 -- Visited on a late afternoon on a Thursday afternoon. The place is kinda hard to find, so get good directions -- especially since thereís no signage whatsoever to indicate youíve successfully arrived. Once we found it, we enjoyed it. It was virtually empty, so the service was attentive if a tad bit disinterested. Iíve been a fan of Two Brothers beers for a while, and they had all the standards on tap, plus a couple other specials. If you find yourself in the area, definitely worth a stop. Brewery #508.

Iíve only been here once, but it was a pretty decent place. The ambiance was fine, but nothing special. Cool bar, tables and booths strewn here and there and pretty busy around dinner time. The service was good, the manager even came out to tell us what special food they had that night that wasnít on any of the menus... he knew my brother was a regular, though, so props to us. The selection wasnít bad, but basically their stuff, which is pretty good beer. The food was all pretty good... my sandwich was very good, and itís one of a few places these days you can find a good muffaletta. Prices are average to slightly high, but overall this is a cool place to hang out and get some darn good food with some pretty good beers.

Totally non descript corporate factory like appearance from the outside. I didnít even see a sign, the beer truck gave it away. Different "regular" looking customers kept coming in to pick up cases of beer. Good selection. Ambiance was ok, definitely not bad at all. I had the fish tacos which were very good. Service was excellent. I will definitely stop back in on trips to and from Chicago, as it has easy access to I-88. A good place to stop when travelling into or out of the city from the west.

Was there before and after the brewery tour. Thought three small samples after the tour was a little weak but something is better than nothing. Didnít have anything to eat. Everyone was very nice and the place was clean. Had everything on draft that they had in bottles with nothing new. The best thing I like about these kind of places being connected to the breweries is that they sell some off stuff that they do not bottle or you canít find anywhere else and since they have opened I believe they had one beer-American Bitter and that was it. I can go to any bar and pay $4 for a pint of their beer so nothing really draws me back until they start offering more one offs. The bottle selection seemed decent.
