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 hasn’t 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. That’s 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 I’d stop in again as they seem to rotate their house beers often and they do have some good guest beers.

Cliff  (72) 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 ’burbs. Overall a really cool place and went twice in two days while in the Villa Park area for work.

First I’ll say, I’m going to have to give this place another chance if I’m in the area. The place is a pretty cool corner street dive bar, my kinda of place. Just after DLD, although I didn’t 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 didn’t watch him closely but I get the IPA same deal. So either all their lines are dirty or he didn’t 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.

76 = ★★★ (Worth the visit, must for locals, and visitors with time)

I only use the total score, not the component parts.

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

I always enjoy my time whenever I go there. The bar is old-fashioned wood and glass, though not flashy. No matter what Charlie and Jim have put on tap, you can bet that the brew will be imaginative and daring. Even if the concoction that you sample may not be your style, it is expertly crafted. The bartenders know what they are talking about and have turned me on to countless brews from their stock that I otherwise would not have purchased. I absolutely love LunaR BrewinG.

Visited on a mid-week, mid-day. This places smacks of a cool old neighborhood bar turned brewpub. There was a small contingent of seemingly local regulars and a very friendly barkeep. If not for the fact that we had to drive on to other destinations, I could’ve spent much time here. With an impressive lineup of house beers (the few we tried were good), but they also had a kick-ass selection of guest taps. Brewery #507.

Lunar Brewing is the kind of bar I wish I had in my neighborhood. It is not corporate looking at all. It sits in an unassuming old brick building with a single sign on it. I had no trouble finding it based on the address. I parked in the small lot in the back of the building. I don’t know how that would work out if they had been really busy. Stepping inside you are treated to a classic long bar on the left and a few rickety tables along the wall on the right. The place was pretty dead because I like to drink in the afternoon, so there was plenty of seating to choose from. I chose the bar of course. The place wasn’t covered in TVs either, which is a good thing. The bartender nudged the list of Lunar and guest taps in my direction. I started with the Space Cadet Stout by Lunar Brewing. It was different than I expected and my first impression was that I didn’t like it. The subtle hint of cherry was unusual. Luckily after a few more sips it started to grow on me and I was really glad I stuck with it. My wife had a Lunar double IPA that I cannot remember the name of. It was very good and I took quite a few samples from her glass. As the day progressed we worked our way through several other beers by Lunar and others. The selection is impressive and we enjoyed everything. The bartender was friendly and honest about the beer. I liked that he could be himself without worrying about some corporate behavior policy. Overall, I like the beer and the atmosphere of Lunar Brewing. I wish they served food (besides frozen pizza) so that I could make this a destination. It is too far from my house to just "stop by", but that is my problem, not theirs. I will definitely try to make it back to this hidden gem of a bar.
