I stopped in for a couple pints today. There wasn't anybody in there really except for an old man bartending and a couple others at the bar which consisted of about 5 seats. The atmosphere was alright, it almost seemed a bit much like a home basement bar though. There were some tables around the place for eating as well. Pretty cool beer bottle chandelier.

They had two beers on tap - Special Force Pale Ale and Kilmister Oatmeal Stout. I had a sample of each, both were good but I decided to go with the Stout. Though served too cold, it was a damn good example of the style. I will have to stop in again when it's likely to be more busy to get a better vibe from the place. Bartender was friendly enough, he was only volunteering and I guess you can't really expect too much when you have three old men together chatting away.

Overall, the beer was good, so that's reason enough to check this place out. Next time I will try the food, it smelled pretty good. Hopefully they will get at least 5 beers on tap at a time in the near future. I liked the ones I tried but I would rather have a better selection to choose from.

Just off the main town square, large brick building, smaller tap room, slightly cramp. We tired 4 ales, 2 were great, two were decent. Friendly staff, they knew a lot about what was in the beer. Their beers on tap were extensive. I brought home a bomber of their Java White Russian Porter called "The Dude"

My hometown brewery where I've spent countless hours at this place. Food is excellent especially the pizza. Beer is amazing too. Highly recommended, a hidden gem!

A cool little bar in an old building that has a small bartop with 6-8 seats and 4-5 tables crammed in the main area. A small-ish TV above the bar that shows whatever they want, typically Chicago sports if on. Around the corner in the bar are big windows that show the brewing equipment and another 5 or 6 tables. Attached to the bar is a pizza joint that is much larger and has much more seating and, suprise suprise, all the beers of the brewery are available. They have some beers that are always available, the Crown brown, blue, cream , etc. and they always have a choice of seasonals, and there are some guest bottles and a few wine choices as well. The food menu is pretty diverse, of course the pizza is available and while I havn't tried it personally it always looks and smells very good, thin crust style. There are sandwiches and wraps, some pasta choices, and a many deep fried "bar food" style options to pick at while hanging out. The place on friday and saturday nights is fun and loud, go on a saturday or sunday afternoon if you want to go in and have a more intimate, quiet experience with other beer lovers. They're very good about giving samples of things before making your decision and there is seemingly always a knowledable patron around to chat with as this place has some die hard followers.

Cool taproom in the historic district of Crown Point. They had some history on the walls about the brewery when it first opened in 1895. Their selection of beers was awesome and the service was good.
