My brother-in-law and I went to this place last night, oh my word! What an excellent fun overload for your senses.

Atmosphere: It was jammed packed, but still able to find seats at the bar. Tons of TVs around the entire place with every sport from around the country. Hard rock music was played, but most of the customers on this Saturday night were 20s-50s, middle-upper class.

Location: right off of major US interstate (US 94) south of Milwaukee and North of Chicago. This place is small and quaint, but not rundown. I probably have driven by it many times and always wondered what it was all about.

Beer: 250 beer selections, 57 on tap (30 beers from WI),
and 1 cask a week! I asked about the cask that they opened the night before on Friday; it was already gone!

Food: The menu is massive. My brother-in-law and I shared a huge order of buffalo wings, figured good snacking source and could focus more on the beer. The wings were decent, the other items and variety of food was insane. The burgers and portions of food were excellent for the price (monster burger $10)

Service: Excellent, Knowledgeable bartenders. Our woman was probably mid-late 20's and had tried every beer in the bar and actually loved beer. It was jammed packed and we never had to wait long for our drink orders at the bar.

This is going to become one of my regular beer stops.
You will not be disappointed.

Just went my 2nd time with my brothers and sisters, John was our served/bartender. He was excellent! High Beer IQ, let us try a few things and made suggestions. This is an outstanding brew pub. We ordered almost every Buffalo wing they make, rather good. They now have over 80 taps! Make sure you stop here.

80+ beers on tap, most of beers are 16 ounce pours, very good food and competitive prices.

It is not large, but the beer menu is. Great beers on tap, from NG to Founders there's something for everyone.

The food menu is also large and great. Wings are super good and cheap, curds to die for, burgers, chicken, steak sandwiches all are great.

Service was slow, but I give them the benefit of the doubt because they were packed so I order more beer!

My only beef with it is they were blasting shit hip hop and rap. It's mostly white boys and bikers inside. Don't mind if its kept low but it was real loud.

Our server was Kasie, she is great and a foxy lady!

If I lived in the area, this is where I would go. They have a huge list, and they have a lot of special releases from Wisconsin breweries. Uncle Mikes attracts an interesting crowd. There’s just as many (probably many more) people there getting tanked on Miller Lite as there are people interested in trying the most unique and new thing on tap. Our bartender didn’t really know anything about the beer that was on tap, and even though they weren’t all that busy, we were left more than once with empty glasses of beer for over 10 minutes. Uncle Mikes is definitely worth a visit, but I wouldn’t make a destination out of it.

Stopped here for lunch while in the Kenosha/Pleasant Prairie area for my daughter's basketball tournament.Sunday afternoon and we were one of the first tables in the place.Tap list was about 7 pages long.Lots of New Glarus and Ale Asylum and also some 3Floyds,Great Lakes and Central Waters.Tap handles were all over the place.My distributor friend hates this.I ordered an Arctic Panzer Wolf with my Mango-Habanero wings and finished with a New Glarus BlackTop.Both were fresh and enjoyable.My only knock was that our server was nonexistent.Cool place overall with good food and a great beer selection.Also only a stone's throw from Woodman's.

An amazing beer selection for an off the highway bar. More draft choices than I can even remember. There are so many in fact, this is not a one time visit place, because there is no way you can try everything you want in one sitting. Food was exceptional. Craft beer and a Kobe burger?? PERFECT! Not to mention to cheese curds... I mean come on, your in WI for goodness sake!!

Huge beer selection, I don't know how many on draft here, but its big. The food was great fare and had Hopslam from a cask and bottle...kudos here, can't believe I had a Hopslam cask. My first time here, all I can say is its a place for beer lovers. I'll be back. All the WI craft names, plus a good selection of Founders and some Bells. This has to be the best variety within a significant mileage.

Good selection of beers. Changes weekly. Some weeks better than others but always a large type to choose from.

Food is suprisingly good. Made to order. worth the wait. A step above "typical bar food" Always a good time.

Servers friendly. Highly recommended.

This is a great beer bar right off I 94 & Hwy 50 in Kenosha. I have been in there a couple times for food and it is above average. I went in for lunch @ 11:30 on Wed and had no problems getting a seat at the bar. I ordered the Dairyland Cheeseburger w pepperjack cheese and fries. Burger was juicy and tasted great. They have an extensive tap beer selection, and offer The Gauntlet. This is an array of 28? two oz cups of each tap beer on the row of tappers on the west side of the bar. This included several Lakefront Brewery and Great Lakes selections, along w old school WI favorites like Pabst & Schlitz. Not sure what the cost is, but the current fastest time to consume all of them is 54 seconds. They keep track of the shortest times on a chalkboard.

I started out w a pint of New Glarus Back 40 Bock, which went down pretty smooth. I tried for a Goose Island Bourbon County, but the barrel was dry and there wasn't any more to be had. They also offer 100+ whiskeys, which can be had neat or included in a cocktail. A chalkboard by the kitchen shows the food specials. Had I known, I prob would have taken the special and saved some $$ for an extra pint. There are also multiple big screen tv's, so you can keep up on all the sporting events known to man.

Wish I could come here every day...

This is one of my favorite bars to frequent when I'm out by I-94. With 86 taps and 250 bottles available, this place is crazy good. The food is spectacular, too. The layout seems a little goofy when you first walk in as the bar area takes up the majority of the room and seating at the bar is usually a premium. If you do manage to belly up, the service is pretty great. Even if you don't the table service is good, too. Aside from a great selection of beers, this place has a pretty good selection of food, and a ton of TV's to keep you occupied. Definately reccomend this place if you're heading somwhere between Milwaukee and Chicago and looking for a good deal.

Finally got to this beer mecca this weekend.

Huge winding bar that almost feels like a maze. Look and feel of any old bar really though. We grabbed a couple stools and got ready for a long lunch.

The beer list is absolutely insane. You could spend an hour humming and hawing over what to drink. After a painful five minutes we decided on a couple beers and got to the food menu.

The food runs the gamut of pretty much every thing you could ever want in pub grub. If it's deep fried or needs twelve napkins they had it.

The servers were very friendly and prompt. It seemed like every person behind the bar served us something. Very cool.

If I lived closer i would hang out here every day.

Stopped in on Sunday around 7:30 on my way home from Chicago. I really enjoyed this place. They have 87+ beers on tap. I had a Founders Imperial Stout and a Founders Centennial IPA. Both were fresh and awesome tasting. The food was very good too - I had the beef fajitas and my business associate had the burger. The ambiance is typical for a bar - neon lights, beer signs, tap handles of past beers served along the wall and a big, dominating bar. Our waiter was nice but not overly knowledgeable - he admitted that he had just started a few days ago. This is a must stop if you're in the area or passing through on I-94.

Great craft beer bar with easy access from both Illinois and Wisconsin. They have around 90 beers on tap and probably twice that in bottles. Nice winding bar with rows of taps. Great international selection and the Wisconsin beers are well represented. They also normally have a cask conditioned beer available which is great. Today it was a hopped Re Ale from Dark Horse. Food is standard bar fare but very good. We normally eat burgers but their wings are very popular. A really great place to hang around and sample beers.
