The brewery is a bit hidden and hard to find. The street address leads you to the main building but they are tucked away on the side.

Service was fantastic. This place is always hopping but they maintain the ability to keep service level high and converse well with patrons. The "Beer for friends" chalkboard is cool. Every time you go in you must read just in case someone left a beer for you there.

The beer is great. Ravaged by Vikings had just come out last time I was there. Great brew! Selection is limited but that is to be expected with a brand new brewery. All offerings I've tried have been above average.

Overall, great clean small place with great service and knowledgeable people.

Nice atmosphere and I don't mind the tap room being in the warehouse because it has a great feel. The servers are cool, the music was 90's hip-hip which I can dig. The only thing that will prevent me from coming back is the beers. The only standout and enjoyable beer was their dark saison, a very nice and roasty sipper. Helicopter Johnson was good but man that was a boozy APA. Actually that is why I am giving them a low rating. Every single APA and IPA I had was boozy with no balance whatsoever. I wanted to like this place but that's alright.

Great local brewpub with a nice selection of beers. The interior is quite small and tends to be standing room only during busier times. Nice open view of the brewery from the pub inside.

This is the cool little brewery in uncool Naperville. Not sure how these hipsters and makes of unique brews landed around this town. Located in an industrial park, the taproom smells good from the parking lot. Busy on a Friday at 1pm, mostly with young folks of the cool-pretty kind. I got a flight of 4 brews for 10 bucks, all big pours served in wine glasses!

9 taps, but 2 kicked. Service was friendly and the taproom is a cool place to chill and try some brews, although I’ll say I wasn’t fully impressed by their highly-regarded brews except for the mighty Full Metal Jacket. I also bought a pricey $25 bottle of their collab with Bruery that was delicious.

I can tell that the brewery has an attitude, and their website comes across as arrogant and annoying. However the folks at the taproom and the atmosphere were anything but. Definitely a must stop in the Western Suburbs.

Very cool wide open industrial tasting room that smells of f awesome malt. Very friendly BT that helped me immediately. Smallish bar area of with nice people. Was a little hard to find, but plenty more of parking. Beer is good. No fun food, but fine.
