Stopped in the Front Street Brewery on a Friday at dinnertime. Had been meaning to try it out for awhile now since it is a local brewpub. Overall, I was unimpressed. I had two beers, one of which was a seasonal cranberry. This was very weak. I detected almost literally no cranberry flavor at all, to the point that I think they may have given me the wrong beer by mistake. I also had their stout. I liked this, but it was somewhat watery. It was more the consistency of a porter with the flavor profile of a stout. I like porters so I enjoyed it well enough. I ordered the slow-roasted beef with mozzerella on French bread. This came with Au Ju sauce (which I'm finding out I like a lot) and was very good. However, the portions were relatively small. I felt like I could have eaten another entire entree. The service was so-so. Three different servers waited on us throughout our stay. I wasn't sure if they were communicating with each other, either. One seemed to be the hostess or maybe even the owner and seemed to be not quite with it. She had us order our beers but then came back a few minutes later and asked everyone how old we were. Kind of odd. All in all, I would not suggest coming back here but would also not be vehemently opposed if someone I was with wanted to come here. I could not help compare it to an establishment I often frequent across the river in Illinois, the Blue Cat Brew Pub. The Front Street Brewery mostly just reminded me how exceptional the Blue Cat is.

First impression of this place, coming in from I74 then heading south made it hard (at first) to find parking. Once we figured that out, we found our way into the brewpub. Once entering, you could see that it was a popular place as the place was hopping. We scoped out a couple leaving and jumped into their booth and patiently waited as a server cleared and cleaned the table. If memory serves me correctly, there were 8 or 8 brews on tap to try with my favorites of the sampler being the stout, the english pale ale, and the vanilla porter. The food was excellent; three of us four ordered the reubons and all agreed they were very tasty. I will definitely come back here next time I'm back in the area.

My first visit to Front Street, I was lucky enough to be there as they were in the middle of their Apricot release - For the entirety of my week long visit to the area, this brew and their eatery was a main-stay in my daily routine! The beer was excellent (as were a couple of their other selections) and the food was paired quite nicely with the drink selections they offered! Great experience!
