Nice tap room. Nicer than expected. Was there on a Saturday night. Bartender not that helpful when asked about some beers. Nice selection. Brewery does well with ales and lagers. Will be back.

Nice selection of ales, the lace on all the taster glass were nice. Bartender Nathan was friendly with good service. Fair sized bar, place is a bit hard to find hiding behind the main street but large parking area. As a Graphic artist I noticed artwork on the five main beers are quite nice.

Pretty standard looking and feeling place. More of a neighborhood bar feel: wood paneling, long bar area, some bar tables, a couple TVs, a small "patio" area. The staff is friendly, although didn’t get a chance to probe knowledge. They have a decent tap selection for one of the "smaller guys." The fact that they’re right next to the train station is nice and convenient.

Wharehouse spot hard to find, but worth the trip. All the beers are top notch, perfect 5oz pour sizes and price, friendly staff. If in the area its a must stop.

A bit tough to find and almost as tough to get a seat as it was trivia night. Decent amount of beers on tap served by a very cute and friendly bartender. The beer was okay, might have had more if it wasn’t time to call it a night.

Interesting newish place in the industrial area by the Metra. Very, very clean with a smallish (12 seat) bar and a series of pub tables with a patio out in the parking lot. 8 taps with a range of Tighthead brews. I would go back. Jan says cleanest bathrooms in Lake County, and they were.

Just a small bar at the brewery serving its own beers and no food (but you can bring your own). Typical industrial park location but one of the nicer industrial parks I have visited. Would be nice to sit on the patio on a warm day and watch the trains roll down the Union Pacific.

Stopped out here during my NW suburban sojourn. Clean industrial park spot with unassuming vibe, sports on a couple of flat screens, window into the brewery. Great place to sample out the beers. They are exclusively Tighthead beers and eventually they’ll have 10-12 on once they get up to capacity. Nice and quiet spot. I’ll be back for sure. Samplers available.
