Went for lunch on a fall Saturday. The building is a huge historical landmark with a great patio in the middle - definitely coming back in the summer.

Bar area was amazing: rustic, cozy, fireplace lit, one tv. Worth coming here just for that.

Dining area is huge, again very rustic. Slightly cool because of the building size. Got a booth for the three of us which was nice.

They had all the standard Two Bros beers plus 5 seasonal/local taps. Had a sampler of four of them : three wet hops and the Cascadian.

Food was good: large selection of sandwiches. The wife had a steak salad that was great, I had a house cured reuben. Delicious.

Service was great. Overall, it is worth the drive from Chicago any day.

Aurora is like the odd suburb where everyone is Mexican but there is a massive brewery complex in the middle of town. The Roundhouse is attached to the working train station and contains the restaurant, brewery,an event space, a second bar and what not.

9 regular taps and 2 seasonals at the main bar, and sadly the DIPA was sold out. Boring lineup, as expected from a boring brewery. But the food menu is cool (if not always well-executed), with a series of small plates including risotto, corn croquettes, bone marrow, vegan tacos and duck’n’grits).

Check out the separate casual café to the left as you enter the roundhouse- they have three taps with better brews than at the main bar (Smoked Black Tea, Imperial Stout, HopJuice, Berliner Weisse). Very expensive and widely unsatisfying, but still worth a trip.

Great atmosphere, great people, and great beer. I love two brothers. They have really good beer and there are always events going on at the roundhouse. If you ever in the aurora area Two Brothers is a must. It's historic and fun and the people are awesome.

Were there for a New Year's Eve party last night. Great selection of beers although a few less Pale Ales would have been appreciated since I tend to like stouts and darker beers better. Although I did try their single stout offering which was excellent. Would definitely go back and highly recommended.

Had to pay $24 for samples, that being said, beer pretty good not top tier. The venue was awesome. Old train station built in 1850s with unique qualities that I couldn't fully take in due to two teens waking up coming in to nag wife (DD) and I when you guys done? Bartender knowledgeable and friendly. Atmosphere extremely airy. Kids gave me a bite of phenomenal bbq wings.
