Visited this establishment on 5/18/11.

A: Very similar to many gastropubs I've visited out in Orange County, California. Clean, dim lighting and lots of dark wood decor. Wasn't particularly busy when I visited, but I can imagine it being pretty packed by the time the weekend roles around.

Q: The beer quality was surperb!One of the first places in awhile where the beer made me sit back and say "WOW!".

As for the food, it was well prepared and offered high quality meats and sides with almost every dish.

S: Not bad, not exceptional...but overall, got everything in a timely manner.

S: Offered about 15 to 20 beers (both tap and bottle). Ordered a flight first, and like I said earlier, was really impressed with how every beer came out.

What I enjoyed the most was the combination of both traditional and rare style beer offerings.

F: Ordered the Lamb Burger and Mac n' Cheese with my girlfriend. She wasn't a fan of the burger, but I devoured it pretty quickly. The Mac n' Cheese was a bit dry for my liking...but overall, decent food for the price.

Overall: A must try! Cheers!

Not a bad brewpub, a great space that looks brand new with quite a few taps. The brewery tour on the other hand is very underwhelming. Unless you have very little knowledge of beer skip the tour. It's comprised of standing around and listening to one of the (brewpub)brew masters explain the brewing process.

Highlights included being able to see a few casks aging in the brewing room, having a few samples after the tour and getting a pint glass included in the price of admission. For value this cannot be beat.

The brewpub offers a lot of beer that is created on-site and a new beer is available weekly. The swag selection is very good. Lots of t-shirts, glasses and even a Chicago/Goose Island flag.
