Here in town for business, my colleagues suggested we go here, understanding of my passion for good beer.

I enjoyed the baltic porter as my first pint, followed by samples of the saison du ruisseau and the rauchbier. Then, after talking to one of the servers, I special-ordered a flight, including the deadhead red, rauchbier, barleywine, pumpkin porter, and vienna lager. The pumpkin, rauchbier, and deadhead were exceptional.

The food was good, the service attentive, the beer quite tasty - a gem in Bloomington, for sure.

Prefer to keep to one overall rating per beer/place. etc., so this rating is maybe lower than it should be. That said, their food is incredible, but their Granite City vibe is not.

Great food/service. Excellent sour selection, lacking on the hoppy selection. Good place to just go and chill and drink craft beer.

The beer is great and getting better all the time, The food is simply amazing. Try The Fish Tacos that are made with Swordfish, and it sounds crazy but is delicious Chili Relleno stuffed with mashed potatos
