So this is located on the perimeter of a shopping mall in Normal, IL and not a very attractive shopping mall, either. It looks like a typical chain brewpub which it is not. But the decor borders on industrial, hip and upscale. Not impressive but not offensive, either. The place was pretty empty for 1pm on a hot Saturday in July. I sampled 5 beers while there and they were all tasty. Sometimes the "session" ale at a brewpub is a little weak but I found their Belgian Pale Ale very good. They had a nice barleywine, sour and an IPA on cask. The service was okay. The waitress wasn't sure of everything they had available. The food was good especially the appetizers. The cheese curds and fried asparagus were excellent. The prices are good, too. The offer sample sizes, 10oz sizes and pints on the beer. I was pleasantly surprised by this place. It makes a nice halfway point between Columbia, MO and Chicago.

Great food/service. Excellent sour selection, lacking on the hoppy selection. Good place to just go and chill and drink craft beer.

The beer is great and getting better all the time, The food is simply amazing. Try The Fish Tacos that are made with Swordfish, and it sounds crazy but is delicious Chili Relleno stuffed with mashed potatos
