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.
i was here for a private monday event so i didnt get the full experience. however, i can attest to: their service (courteous, fast and knowledgeable), staff (met the general manager, great guy), food (it wasnt the regular menu but a catered menu made in the kitchen, awesome), and ambiance (very clean, modern and nice). great place i definately want to return to on a normal night. however be wary of teh cask, it was VERY cold.
Stopped in for a pint and a snack on our way to Chicago. Itís a few miles north of I88. Their tap selection was pretty much what they offer in bottles with the exception of an American Bitter, which I had. Not a bad beer. The tap room itself was nice enough. Sports bar-ish feel. Very clean and new. The service was good as were the nachos.
This is my new favorite bar. Too bad itís four towns away. I think the food is really good for a bar. I got fish & chips. They were spicy. Tastes awesome with Cane & Ebel. Also, Two Brothers beer is so stinkin good out of the tap. You have to try this place. Iím a fan.
Wow!!! IMPOSSIBLE to find this place...he food was awesome!!! Not only do they have all of the Two Brothers beers on, but Windy City is a boutique distributor here that is owned by the wives of Two Brothers...so they carry almost that whole portfolio as well...awesome place!
Four white walls in a warehouse district does not make this a date destination. But this should come around. Decent beer selection - to the point that if you do not like 2Bs beer, they give you plenty of beer by the bottle options. Service is strong - the GM comes by every time we are there to check in on our satisfaction level. Food is pretty plain, but the smoked pulled pork is excellent - other stuff just average, maybe a little bland. I love having this place in the Far West Burbs, as it can be both a superior brewpub, and a decent beer bar.
Like 3Floydís in an industrial park, accessed from a Calumet Avenue. Place is still undergoing shakedown, as they STILL have no signs. Inside is kind of like many bars quickly set up inside a generic steel building. But yep, all current 2Bros on tap, plenty of interesting guest bottles. I just stopped by to drop a homebrew contest entry and check the place out: late afternoon crowd was a few beer geeks and some fellow industrial park workers who were glad to find this place in their midst. Bar servers well prepared to scratch your beer itch. It will be a while before I can return to try out the food, but I will indeed be back.
NOTE: The RateBeer map as of 3/08 is WRONG. The place is on Claumet Ave. West access it from Talbot Ave., a couple blocks west of Rt. 59. Top it off with absolutely ZERO SIGNAGE. If youíre lucky, their trucks will be parked on the dock. (beermapping.com has it right if you want the map.)
That out of the way, this place is great. The house beers are far better than their bottled selves, and food is primo pub grub. I had an awesome pulled pork sandwich, my wife a very solid cheeseburger. Nice kidsí menu as well. Service was greatvery attentive despite a group of 25 or so showing up sans reservations. Excellent guest bottles. Very much worth going out of your way for.
