This place is beautiful, amazing beer selection, great traditional German cuisine, and family owned and operated with great service. I have not encountered a better place in the west suburbs, the only one that comes close is Rock Bottom in Warrenville which is good but it's still Rock Bottom. For those afraid of German food, just get chicken schnitzel (essentially a friend chicken breast fillet without a bun) and a pretzel appetizer, then get the rest of your calories via liquid. It is a bit pricey but the portions are large and the beers are great. You will not go home hungry or thirsty here, but you're probably going to spend $50 on yourself for dinner and 3 beers. Then again, most decent places in the area probably charge that if you're drinking anything other than BMC.

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!
