Small place that is all about the beer. A wide variety of beer on tap that is near world class. Children welcome. Very expensive. A beer here for everyone except the lager drinker.

Really intimate feeling. Mostly subdued on a Sunday. Weird location between a dollar store and a Chinese restaurant or something. Interesting selection of styles. Bar service is friendly, handing out samples. My kriek lambic was good, as was everything else that I tried. Other patrons seem like serious beer people, too -- sharing some really interesting stuff. Definitely a nice place to visit.

9/16/18 (Niles, IL): First visit to the brewery closest to my home, glad I went. Very small store in large strip mall on Golf. Much of the store is filled with brewery vats and other equipment. Front bar nice, nice taps and large clear refrigerators displaying many of their to go or in house consumption offerings. Sours and stouts ranged from very good to outstanding. Service very friendly, knowledgeable and pleasant. Overall nice place to have a few great offerings, great place to pick up a few stouts or sours to go.

A smaller narrow tap room located in a strip mall. This is actually two beer brand done by one brewer. One being American wild ales, and hubbard's cave doing nice stout and such. The sour beer were decent but the stouts were great. Sweet and complex. Good selection.

Atmosphere isn't the best due to the strip mall location, stained ceiling tiles, etc. but I do really like the clean, modern looking bar which is a nice break from the usual rustic, industrial look most breweries have. The vibe as a whole though was nice since the patrons and bartender were all very friendly and it was a fun place to hang out (it's also dog friendly so I got to pet a cute husky). There are a couple tables outside as well if the weather is nice.

Probably 90% of what I drink are sours and stouts and this place is basically perfect. Tons of sours and stouts on tap and even more bottles. The bartender was super nice and liked to pop open bottles so we got a free pour of an absolutely delicious beer that wasn't on tap and I kinda regret only buying 2 bottles of it. Looking at reviews it appears that they're definitely improving on their adjunct stouts, so if you had one a while back and weren't a fan it's definitely worth giving them another try. Three out of the four stouts we tried were outstanding and the sours were awesome as well.

We visited More, Mikerphone & Une Annee all in the same weekend and although UA has by far the least hype they were our favorite by a mile.

Really enjoyed stopping in here a few times. Bartender seem to enjoy what they do and don't mind striking up a conversation. Enjoy the low-key atmosphere and they have a pretty good selection of beers. I'll definitely keep popping in when I have the chance.

Pretty decent place! In an old strip mall and all signs are red - look for the one that simply says 'BREWERY'. Very clean inside, kid friendly, couple of TVs, and awesome folks behind the counter. Get your Hubbard's Cave here -- love it!

I didn't get the sense for a much of a vibe. Unless you knew about this place's location, you likely wouldn't have seen it or happen to come upon it. Was rather quiet and unassuming crowd (probably a lot of Niles residents) and a mix of people that either didn't know anything about beer or people that were there for a specific wild ale. Quality of the place isn't bad. They have it set up the best they can considering the location. It looks like it use to be a small Chinese restaurant in a somewhat run-down strip-mall, which is set back about 100 yards from the Golf Rd. before being converted into the brewery. Space is tight and there isn't a lot of seating, but overall the placeis ok. Service was good, with there being one bartender present when we visited on Sunday. He seemed knowledgeable on the beers and prompt. A bit of a downside is that this place is credit card only (no cash). Selection was also descent with IPAs (from Hubbard's Cave), stouts and many kinds of sours available, both on draft and in bottles.

Overall, not a bad place and certainly with a descent beer selection. The location is a bit awkward and the space could be a bit tight on a busy night.

The beer itself and the service are quite exceptional. Forgot how much I loved Belgian style beers. The ambience, however, is extremely lacking. I can get past the fact that it's located in a strip mall. And the tap room, though very basic, would be fine if it weren't for the harsh fluorescent lighting. Replace those with some dimmable pendants and it would make a world of difference.

Fantastic place, tons of sour taps, to go bottles, and growler fills. The service is top notch, with the brewer himself walking around talking to everyone. Kid friendly, and tons of take out menus to order food from. Lots of parking and prices are very fair for the product they are pumping out. Their fruited sours rival the best in the USA, i can easily see this place expanding in the future.
