The brewery / tap room was tucked away behind a car delership in an industrial park area of this Chicago suburb. Walking in the door I was greated with the aroma of hot wort, a great sign this brewery was in operation and adding to the atmosphere.

The brewing equipment and the bar are sepperated by a half wall so there is no problem seeing it in action when you get your first pint. I tried the Captured By Vikings a complex malt and pine aroma IPA that reminded me of Surly Furious. I also tried the Tickle Fight (barley wine) and sampled a spiced belgian brown ale. Overall the beer was top notch and its great to see some interesting variety in their lineup. I'll definatly be keeping an eye on them and hope to make a return visit.

Staff knows their stuff. The motif is to the point and sticks with the image they perpetuate(gaudy/minimalist). The clientele can be pretty pretentious even by hipster standards but, hey, that's what you're asking for when you decide to sit in a place to drink designer beer that has an eye toward "fashion". They're the type that like bad art and other things people don't like. if it wasn't at the back end of an industrial park and hard to find, more people might know about this place and it wouldn't be so cool to be at. But I digress. They make great beer names.

I've really enjoyed the several different beers that I've had from this brewery. They're all excellent quality. The brewery itself is rather small along with limited bar seating and a small sitting/standing area, but it doesn't seem to pose a problem. However, I have not been there on a weekend night and I could imagine it easily getting crowded. My biggest complaint is the price of the beer, especially at the brewery. They want $6+ for a glass and growlers are $20+. That growler price is equal to $22.50 for a 6 pack of 12oz bottles, which is obsurd. I won't be back for a growler fill again, and doubt I'll be back again, period. I'll give it an overall score of 3.5 because their beer is good, but it's way too expensive for what it is - beer.
