The Lunar is a hidden gem in the near western suburbs. This is not a fancy new brewpub or a cool retrofitted old building. What you have here is the classic corner bar. This reminds me of the joints I first drank in and I mean that as a compliment.

I would say about 1/2 of the customers are there for the Lunar's excellent beer and for the other half, the Lunar is just their corner bar. You see a lot of people drinking the macros and I don't think they know what they are missing.

I guess they have only a tiny three-barrel brewing system. However they also seem to have about 8 or so of their beers on hand. In addition they have a huge section of Micros & imports. Belgian lovers take note, the Lunar seems to have a very good selection!

I have tried and enjoyed their IPA (hop heaven), their unique Rye beer, a very good Kolsch, a nice American Pale Ale, A wicked whiskey barrel aged Imperial stout, a nice Raspberry Cream & a tasty Brown Ale.

The only down side is that they do not serve food (except once in an while they seem to have frozen pizza). However, you can bring food in with you.

They have a nice long bar with plenty of seating. There are also tables against the wall & more tables in back. They also have a small stage. It always has a nice size crowd, but I have never seen it where you can't get a table. Surprisingly, there seems to be a fairly high ratio of girls! It has a great jukebox and you can play darts as well.

Again, this is not a fancy place, but it is a great place to spend a few hours with your beer loving friends. Give it a try!!

Atmosphere-a little bit of a dive with some nice, older wood work. A little dead on a Sunday afternoon but a nice quiet place to enjoy a couple.

Quality-beers were solid. We had the IPA, Citra-Hopped Cream Ale and Munich-Style Lager.

Service-it was dead, but the bartender kept our glasses full and allowed us samples of each beer we wanted to try.

Selection-They had about six house beers on tap with a half-dozen or so more guest taps. Bottle/can selection was very good as well. Many new ones to try and old ones to revisit.

Food-They only have a few small bags of chips, etc. Carryout/delivery is welcome from surrounding areas.

Value-House beers were fairly reasonable at 5-6 dollars a pint. Guest beers seemed a little pricey.

Overall-A nice location just off the bike path. We'll be back every 4-6 weeks for a couple quiet beers in a nice setting.
