Made the point of stopping here on a recent roadtrip. What a pleasant surprise. It's a very nice brewery near the Purdue campus.
Nice atmosphere inside the brewery. We sat at the bar and had a couple of pints. On Wednesdays they have very good drink specials, $2.50/pint. Both the service and selection were very good. We parked directly in front of the building on the street, but I didn't see any adjacent parking lots.
The beers here are very good. I had their Oatmeal Stout and their IPA. Both were very solid.
If this place were closer to my home I would frequent it very often. If passing through the area it is a must stop.

The finished wood atmosphere flowing through this spacious restaurant/brewery really ended up being the most impressive part of our visit. There's a nice & inviting feeling about this place.
The quality of both their food and beer, however, were just a tad of a letdown. I can't say anything too harsh or negative because I did overall enjoy the Eighty-Five IPA that I drank, and the Fish & Chips were adequate, but I was expecting more.
The waiters that interacted with us during our visit were very friendly and helpful.
The selection of beers wasn't anything special, and there was simply no offering for lovers of higher ABV beers.
I like this place alright, but I didn't love it like I wanted to.

This is a casual, laid back brew pub, with no pretense or airs. All are welcome, all feel welcome. There is a large bar area with good seating and wide open views of the bar and the large screen TVs. The restaurant seating is spacious and can accommodate parties from 2 to 50. There is a good view of the brewing kettles and collegiate/olde tyme decor on the walls.
The food is simply prepared but excellent in both quality and value. Wednesdays are typically discount pint night, and nightly specials keep most menu items under $10. There is a good selection of food to choose from, from typical Irish pub fare to more cross-cultural items. The kitchen usually has fresh fish specials, as well as creative meals only available once a week.
You simply must have the onion rings. The largest, best battered rings I have ever personally witnessed. One basket will feed two easily, three comfortably, four if two are dieting. At last glance, the menu item was $4.50.
The fish and chips are equally impressive. Shepherd's Pie is well done, as well as the buffalo burgers, wraps, and soups.
I recommend sitting in the window, better for people watching.

I stopped by while traveling to Chicago.
It's in a nice historic area of West Lafayette not far from Purdue University. The interior is fairly traditional pub decor with low light, good space and a comfortable atmosphere.
The beer was decent. I had a pale ale and a scottish ale. Both had a real cask like feel which I like but may not be for everyone. Great 20oz tulip glasses.
The food is good. We had a couple of apps, the pub burger and the brisket sandwich. There were no disappointments. The service was good.
The reviews for LB seem varied. I thought it was pretty good but not remarkable.
