Milestone 400th stop on my world brewery tour - and what a nice one it was.

What I would consider a mega-nano brewery operating a 10 BBL system with beautifully unique serving tanks directly behind the bar. Brewery behind and to the side of the bar. No room for expansion and from talking to the brewer/bartender around 3:30 on a Tuesday, they have no plans to take over the world.

From top to bottom very nice beers including a wonderful sessionable CA Common/Cream Ale blend. Serious props for a true craft light beer with flavor. Hoppy wheat and a hoppy white IPA both very well done. I think it was the hipster meats shark that really got me excited (galaxy hops).

Only problem was the brewer/bartender was so cool he made the regular server lady seem a bit uptight. Hard to add another brewery into my Chicago travels rotation but this one will find a way.

BTW, AWESOME Vietnam sandwhich shop a couple of doors down. UrbanSpoon it and totally give it a try if you've never had Vietnam food. Cheap, quick, and super fresh quality ingredients. (1,054 characters)

Visited during Saturday afternoon brunch. Place was hoppin'. Smaller size brewpub, but a decent sized table area, and a pretty long bar for the overall space. Not overly loud, very pleasant to be at. Had a flight of six 5 ounce beers, very fairly priced. Eight of their beers on tap, with a few guest taps and a few bottles. Two sizes of growlers, also priced well. Service was terrific, friendly and attentive. Food was excellent (the french toast is a big winner), good variety. Regular lunch menu looked good, as well.

Really nice experience, fun place to be. Will definitely return. (597 characters)

A friend showed me this place about a year ago. Not being one of the big or even moderate-sized breweries in the area, I was a little skeptical. But through their sleek yet comfortable environment, delicious if somewhat exhausted food concepts (gastropub, think poutine, gourmet mac-and-cheese, porkchop with some kinda fancy sauce, etc), and, of course, great beer, they quickly won me over. This is a great place to grab a beer, a quick snack, or a full meal. I usually grab a growler to go (they will fill other breweries' growlers, too), and whenever I find myself in the city I try to make a run over there to fill one or three up with whatever new brews they are showcasing. Most of their beers are in the very good range, with a few above or below that mark a bit. Some are obviously R&D beers, but some are final products that are just lacking that final polishing of the recipe or production that would put them in the 'amazing' distinction. Never had a bad one. Give these underdogs a try! (999 characters)

I like this place, service is good, food good, prices just a bit higher than other joints; probably would keep my return visits to a minimum. (141 characters)
