My wife and I visited The Bavarian Lodge for the second time recently and both times we've been blown away by their beer selection. Following them on FB they appear to get new beers in almost daily with 3-4 beers rotating on the weekend days.

We also ate on this visit and the food was excellent. We both had German dishes - the Weiner Schlitzel and the Schweins Hax'n - the latter being hard to find State-side and even harder to find done well. They also had a good variety of other foods which we will be trying on our next visit.

They always have interesting and great beer on draft - and having great food doesn't hurt either! One of the go-to's for the Chicago burbs!

Friend brought me there because they had Arctic Panzer Wolf on tap (operative word "had"). Glad it they we out and although the were quick to offer a Revolution Anti-Hero there was no need. I could think of no bigger insult than to drink an IPA in this place. Not that it had a super authentic vibe but their German selection was outstanding and how could any one or two or ... not be washed down with bacon cheddar brat.

Huge list of beers. Beers are from all over including Germany, Belgium, the UK, and the US. Very authentic German food as well that is absolutely amazing. Don't go here expecting to watch a game on tv because there are no tvs. This place is all about the beer, food, and décor.

The beer selection itself should rate this place a 10 but if you're looking for authentic German/Bavarian fair this place is the tits!
