My first time visiting Bavarian Lodge and was pretty impressed. They had a vast selection of beers, many harder to find Belgians on draft. They also had an excellent bottle list, of which many were more difficult to find as well. They also had some good solid craft domestic options on both draft and bottle.

The atmosphere on a weekend night would probably be pretty good, but for a Thursday it seemed pretty light. Service was good, the servers seemed to be fairly knowledgeable and enthusiastic about beer.

I would definitely visit this place again, they just have too many good beer options and good german food not to go back.

Perfect.
A real live BA bar.
Quality, variety, depth, in beer, scotch, food, and service.
25 or stools around the u-shaped bar. Private booths for another 25 people. Some additional tables all in the bar area.
2 other rooms have more space for larger (more than 6) groups. Parking seems sufficient.
Back to the Kwak cask.

They always have interesting and great beer on draft - and having great food doesn't hurt either! One of the go-to's for the Chicago burbs!

Friend brought me there because they had Arctic Panzer Wolf on tap (operative word "had"). Glad it they we out and although the were quick to offer a Revolution Anti-Hero there was no need. I could think of no bigger insult than to drink an IPA in this place. Not that it had a super authentic vibe but their German selection was outstanding and how could any one or two or ... not be washed down with bacon cheddar brat.
