Great neighborhood watering hole with a solid brewery and great beer selection. Local-centric dive with a no pretentiousness , and folks that are proud (rightfully so) of their establishment. In house brews are very good, and itís easy to feel like a local in this place.

Stopped in on a weekday evening. There were a handful of people in the brewpub. We sat at a table a few feet from the bar. There was a beer menu on the table, so we read through it a couple of times, and no one came over to see if we wanted to try any of their beers. After a few minutes I went up to the bar, and the bartender came over to me. He was down talking to a few of the patrons sitting at the bar. I asked about trying a flight of their beers, and they donít do that. He said he could pour a couple of samples, so I agreed. I went back to the bar and bought a pint of their IPA. It was ok, but I was disappointed in the overall experience. The guest tap list was impressive, but we were ready to move on. Not sure I would revisit.

The prototypical corner dive bar but this one is a brewery and has a craft beer selection that will blow your mind.

Stopped in to try a few beers on the way to a wedding. Sign was so warn out, almost missed. Feel of an old 60s bar that hasnít changed much at all. Was empty on my visit but service was fine. Had about 6 of their own taps plus a number of guest brews. Some snacks available. Beer made it worth the stop and at nice prices.

Visited October 2010.

I had heard that their barrel aged beers are worth travelling for but the rest of the beers are just ok. Thatís pretty much accurate. The place is dark and on the edge of a residential part of town. Not a real scenic area.

Service was decent as were prices and atmosphere. If I had some business in the area Iíd stop in again as they seem to rotate their house beers often and they do have some good guest beers.

Cliff  (68) The Land of Milk and Honey, Ohio | October 4, 2012
Kind of a dive joint, but a pretty cool place. Awesome selection of guest taps, but I mostly kept to the Lunar beers. Their IPA was a bit "different", but really good. I could not put my finger on what was unique with it, but it was delicious. I also tried their Oktoberfest and a Belgian Pale Ale, both of which were very good. No food that I could see and the bartender was accommodating, but not overly friendly. Prices on par with the Chicago íburbs. Overall a really cool place and went twice in two days while in the Villa Park area for work.

First Iíll say, Iím going to have to give this place another chance if Iím in the area. The place is a pretty cool corner street dive bar, my kinda of place. Just after DLD, although I didnít go, people just getting back from it. Nice selection of in house brews and some nice guest taps and a huge bottle list! Wish I would have had more time. Unfortunately, not a great experience. I ordered the Kolsch, I get it and all it smells and tastes like is Belgian Spice. I ask the bartender if they had just changed kegs. They had and he asked if something was wrong with the beer. He tastes the Kolsch and admits its off and says sometimes when they change kegs the beer can be funky, dirty lines. So I order an IPA, now I didnít watch him closely but I get the IPA same deal. So either all their lines are dirty or he didnít give me a clean glass. Disappointing, but willing to go back.

Place Rating #200. Traditional corner bar setup, decent sized bar with tables filling out the place. I visited right after they opened, so was the only person in there. Service was busy setting up for the day, so pretty much left me be. When I visited, it was brew day and smelled amazing in the place. Three taps of their own (Kolsch, IPA and Steam) and a really high quality list of guest bottles and about 10 or so guest taps. Food wise, it looked like a couple of different frozen pizzas and bar snacks. Cool vibe, bet it would be a lot of fun on a busy night. I always love these combo micro brewer high end beer bar places. Fun stop, one of those places that if it was near me I would be at pretty often.

Very "corner bar" atmosphere. House beers arenít bad, but not very noteworthy. The guest beer list, however, is excellent.
