Located in an unpreposessing storefront basically in the middle of the IU campus, I drove by Lennie’s/Bllomington Brewing nearly 3 years without ever stopping, even though I had enjoyed several Bloomington Brewing beers at other local establishments or in package form.

Stop in. You will find a very midwestern restaurant/pub with a “bar side” (21 and over) and “restaurant side.” The bar side has friendly regulars and bartenders, 14-16 beers on draft, including a cask ale (or two), a nitro (or two), and some barrel-aged beers. Growlers to go as well.

I will be making it a regular stop.

Not a bad spot to dine on some grub. Here goes:

A: In a dark plaza; not much lighting. The inside on this place resembles the outside, which is unfortunate. Very dark - cast of characters are somewhat quirky but by no means shady.

Q: Sat at the bar - which was OK. Still kind of dingy, although the tap lines looked nice.

S: Good. Nice and friendly bartender. Recommended some good beers.

S: Good selection of beers - Rooftop IPA was great.

F: Run-of-the-mill bar grub. Had the quesadillas.

Great food, beer and service. Make sure you try the Roofop IPA and Ruby Bloom Amber. I also tried Java Porter and Biere de Mars - both were outstanding.

As for food: The pizza was outstanding, and the Strom - aka calzones - were huge. The Chicken Caesar and Turkey Tortilla Salad both pleased my party. I ate the Red Chile Chicken with fries. Amazing!
