I’ve been going here since the summer of 07. I’ve never been disappointed and I always look forward to coming back.

The atmosphere is laid back in the bar area. Friendly service and people. I have always felt welcome here. This place has a feeling of like being in a hunting lodge (as stated in a previous review). Lots of cool beer swag and deer/animal heads on the walls. The overall quality of food, beer, and service have all been very good. Beer is served in the appropriate glassware. The service was professional. The bartender and servers know what they’re talking about and are happy to answer any questions you may have (not too many places in the burbs are like that). The only complaint would be, when they get busy they could use a few more severs out there to keep up with the thirsty crowd. The selection of beer is fantastic, more than enough to choose from. The food menu is mainly German dishes, but they do offer burgers, a chicken sandwich, ribs, and meat loaf. The value is fair. The food can be a bit pricey, but good sized portions. This place is really about their beer selection, so I don’t mind paying a few extra bucks.

A beer coinsures paradise! Website is always current on what’s on tap and what’s coming soon. I hope this review helped you out. Recommended. Cheers!

Great environment and German food about as close to overseas as you can find in Illinois. While the selection of beers wasn't overwhelmingly large, the quality was evident with no low quality brews. All of your typical German staples were there along with some other imports. What really makes this place special though, is their special casks that they frequently tap after aging various beers. Not only are these specials good beers to begin with, but their aging and tapping makes the final product one of a kind. Since their casks always rotate, you can expect to find something new every visit, I'll be back soon!
