An excellent place to go for a meal or drink. Ambiance is nothing fancy. Beer selection is excellent. They always have one of their beers cask conditioned on the weekend. In addition to their usual lineup there is an excellent bottle selection representing not only other domestic craft brews but heavy on the Belgians. The food is always excellent from the bar food to the specials that Chef Tommy makes. Highly recommended.
This is my new favorite bar. Too bad it’s 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. I’m a fan.
Totally non descript corporate factory like appearance from the outside. I didn’t 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.
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.
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 you’re 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 kids’ 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.
Don’t let the outside appearance fool you. Awesome place to have local craft brew, eat organic food, and get an up close brewery tour (which includes free beer samples). Try the Domaine DuPage and Northwind Stout. Tap House burger and pulled pork are some favorites food-wise.
(Visited 11/2010): Visited Two Brothers after thinking I was lost, which is evidently a common experience for visitors. I actually visited two nights in a row because there was a private event being held at the brewery the evening of my first attempt. The brewery is located on the northwest side of Warrenville on Talbot in a seemingly residential area. There is a private lot as well as street parking.
The interior is softly lit, with the bar on the left side and table seating throughout. The bar area boasts TVs and a view of brewing equipment.
Two Brothers has about 10 of their beers on draught, including most of their flagship brews plus a couple less common offerings like Heavier Handed IPA, Long Haul Session and Resistance IPA. They also offer a 5 beer sampler. There are about 30 bottles on the menu too.
Service in the restaurant area on a weeknight was solid. Our server was familiar with the beers and efficient.
Food at Two Brothers is good. My colleague and I both enjoyed our dishes.
Overall this place is worth the difficulties finding it. Recommended for any visitor to the area, and may even be worthwhile visiting from the Chicago area.
I’ve 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 wasn’t on any of the menus... he knew my brother was a regular, though, so props to us. The selection wasn’t bad, but basically their stuff, which is pretty good beer. The food was all pretty good... my sandwich was very good, and it’s 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.
