This is a nice little gem tucked away in Lansing. It's still very small, about 15-20 seats, but the beer is great, and the brewers are awesome. It's only a few minutes off of 80-94 so it' very accesible. The spicy pretzels on each table make up for the lack of food. Definitely worth a try if you are in the Chicagoland area.

One Trick Pony is truly a hidden gem in the south suburbs.
Really there are few like it, it reminded me of the first time visiting Jolly Pumpkin in Dexter and Dark Horse in Marshall years ago. Effortlessly original and DIY.
Dave was a delight to meet and talk/listen to. This guy had stories for days, and happened to be the co-owner of the brewery. He only works there every day, so you'll likely meet him if you go. Quick with both samples and jokes, this guy was great.
The beer selection was solid too, about 8 house drafts and a couple from Transient.
Everything I tried was good quality. Usually there's a few clunkers at a brewpub, but not here. They fill outside growlers too, unlike FFF nearby.
The vibe was unique and cozy, the walls displayed a collection of old Chicago bottles and newer growlers, framed maps and various posters, breweriana, and ephemera. A rack of books had the latest Mash Tun magazine and a hardcover book about horror movies from 1984. Awesome.

Simple tasting room, relaxed atmosphere, free samples, Excellent beers (mainly on the full flavor side), Very friendly staff and customers who know their beers. No food but you welcome to order in or bring your own, CASH ONLY, Most beers are $5.00/ 20 oz. imperial pint or $2.50 for a half pint. free pretzels. Great place, my favorite by far.
