Have been here many times since moving to the area three years ago. If there is a knock on it, it's the atmosphere. There really is not much once you get inside. Kind of sterile but I keep in mind the space they have doesn't allow much for creative decor.

Besides the owner, their staff is not too knowledgable when it comes to beer. However, when my wife and I (and even 1 year old daughter!) have visited the service has always been good to very good.

The location is prime, as it is right on the main drag in Geneva,Il and the old movie marquee sign is a nice touch.

Food is pretty tasty. Never had a bad burger and their pulled pork and turkey bacon sandwich are solid. Could they do more with the menu, yeah, but the beer is the main attraction here.

Now, they only have about 10-12 taps (large bomber, bottle and can selection too) but they usually have a few things that are unique. Meaning if you searched beermenus.com you may see Geneva Ale House as the only or few that have that beer. Recent hard to find drafts here include Deschutes The Abyss, Black Butte XXV, Three Floyd's Zombie Dust, Hop Trip, Alpha Klaus, Permanent Funeral, Sixpoint Special Releases, Ballast Point Victory at Sea. They most likely will be carrying Penrose Brewing as well, once those folks open their doors in early 2014.

If you are ever in the Fox Valley Area and need a decent burger and a great craft beer
seek Geneva Ale House out.
