Went on opening night. Very pretty building, good service. Great beer selection especially the house brews. The Brewmaster was extremely friendly and knowledgable. Food was very good and reasonably priced. Great experience, will definately comeback!
Nice spacious area, lots of t.v.s, area for a band, but first most, some of the nicest, friendliest waitstaff, workers that I have meet. I went in to just do a flight of their beers. Bartender was friendly, knowledgable about their beers, and made you feel welcome. The oatmeal stout wasn’t available when I ws there, but that just gives me a reason to go back again. The beers that I did try where tasty. I saw a nice selection of guest taps and bottles. I wish them the best of luck.
Located in a strip mall, which I had reservations about. Once you get inside you would never know. Two stories, large bar area, stage, and a sort of mead hall / old inn vibe. Very nice. Beers displayed on the standard large chalkboard and 5 oz flights of all their beers are available. The menu is on the small side but the food is decent and the prices are fair. Bottle and tap list represents some excellent midwestern selections. Nice place I will be back for sure.

This is a remarkable place for being so out-of-the-way. If you are in the area you really should stop by Limestone. I was overall impressed with the ambiance and felt that if I were to design a brewpub of my own that it would be nearly identical. The staff was friendly and pleasant, and knew enough about beers to answer my questions. I tried the Ukranium Krusher and Oatmeal Stout while I was here, and I must say I am still kicking myself for not picking up a couple growlers to bring home. For food, we simply had Bruschetta to accompany our beers, which was very fresh, delicious, and obviously made from scratch - a great thing which is too often lost these days. Overall I really enjoyed my visit, and hope to go again soon. With my fiancee living in Plainfield, I don’t see that as a problem ;)
Very cozy feel inside. Lots of tables and a very large bar. There’s also a second floor with table and couches. The service was a bit slow but quite efficient. The place just opened, so they only had 3 of their own beers, which were quite good. But they have a huge selection of other beers...probably 15 on tap and another 20+ in bottles. The food was good, and the kids menu was adequate. A good restaurant with good beer. We will return!
Checked this place out for lunch on a Tuesday. Sat at the bar and had a flight of 6 4oz beer. Had a couple of appitizers and a bowl of the soup (great beer cheese soup). Place is out there,but since there is no competition around this place should do great. Nice clean, new place, does remind me of an upscaleish Rock Bottom. Service is awsome. View from bar to tanks (brewing at the time I was there). Lots of TVs. Food selection is minimal. What I had was pretty good. Selection of beer is above average, 6 house brews, 6 other tap beer including Two Hearted, Reds Rye and others. Bottle selection good. GI BCS, Old Rasputin, some belgian brews and other. Nice overall.
Visited and talked to the owner and brewmaster. Got a lot of details about the special problems of building a brewpub in a strip mall (how about zoning for an indoor crane to hoist 1,100 lb. pallets of grain?). So I’m here in its first week, and it still needs to settle in. Big open space is a little sterile yet, but will grow. Mezzanines and party rooms upstairs. Brew works is in sight, but sealed away, since brew day involves cracking the grain (dust containment) just before mashing. They had a good looking sous chef menu, though I just had the "bottle caps" (fried chile pepper slices) and the Angus burger, both fine and priced in line with any other restaurant. Only 3 house beers on tap, but the place has been so busy they’ve already drained one 15-barrel serving tank. So there are plenty of guest taps and bottled beers behind the bar. This is a place to watch, and from the crowd I saw, could take off in service to the Plainfield/Joliet (even the Naperville) area.
