Ok first thing first this place was packed which os to be expected on a saturday night.
They have a bar booth seating and tables. The ceiling is awesome and from the booth I was seated at I could see into the actual brewery.
The quality was outstanding the beer was flavorful with quirky names. The tables where clean. Everything was nice.
The service was good the waitress that we had was attentive.
They have more than the average bar food on the menu. The had six beers by them and I also glanced over there whiskey/bourbon list and they where mostly all distilled in the midwest. Didnt try any of thesenext time I will.
Ok as for the food, im a big burger fan well I had a grass feed cow burgwr and it was hands down the best burger I have ever had. Also burgers/ chicken sandwich come with fries.
The price was easily affordable.

The brewpub is located in an old factory on Western Ave in the Beverly neighborhood of Chicago. The brick walls, high timber ceilings, and decor represent classic Chicago buildings of the era. Each time I've visited there have always been plenty of patrons and usually a wait to get seated. The bar seats are first come first serve and usually open up before a table.
The beer is great and they ensure it's served in a freshly rinsed glassware that fits the style. They serve on-site brewed beer as well as host some guest taps. Nothing is in bottles, at-least nothing a respectable beer drinker would order. They a small selection of wine but keep in mind this is a brewpub and not a winery so don't expect much.
Service is excellent and the staff are very responsive to your needs. I have never been disappointed with each visit, enough said.
The food menu is small and simple which is very relieving. In my opinion a brewpub should have a small but high quality menu, however, the quality coming out of the kitchen isn't always on par with expectations. There have been some inconsistencies the food in that the fries were cold or the turkey burger was very dry. Hopefully this is the case of them being new and not fully adjusted so they'll get the benefit of the doubt in my rating.
Pricing is typical for a brewpub, $5-7 pints and entrees can run $10-15. Reasonable and within budget.

It's always difficult to review a brewpub the first week it opens so there will be a follow-up to this review a month or two from now.
Horse Thief Hollow is a welcomed business to the neighborhood and everyone is proud to have a place like this in Beverly. This could very well be the first restaurant/bar/brewpub on Western Ave that doesn't have Miller, Bud, or Guinness on draft. Finally!
It was 8pm on a Friday night and the place was quite busy, 45min wait to get a table. First come first serve at the bar and some chairs opened up within 20min. Horse Thief Hollow had two of their own beers and some impressive guest drafts. Most pours were $5-6 each and they also offered a flight option. The stainless conicals were alongside the wall and still to-be used. My suggestion to all is to re-visit the place 1-2 months from now when they have more of their own brewed beer on tap. There could also have been more options for bottled beer... the choices seemed limited to only what was on draft.
The food was reasonably priced for what was served. The burgers are average... better than most fast food establishments but can't be compared to places like Tribes or Three Floyds. Chicken Tenders were average as well, both came with a side of fries. They were also out of a few menu items which was expected.
Service from the hostess & bartenders stood out. They will definitely take care of you here and are happy doing so despite how busy the place was. If they continue leading with the great service then this place has lasting potential. The minor issues of running out of menu items or beer choices will work themselves out over time.
