Giovans is an Italian restaurant / pizzeria in Crest Hill, just north of Joliet, that now carries a nice little rotation of craft beers.

This place is super easy to get to, and convenient to both I-80 and I-55. Parking is plentiful. The building is huge, with a large dining room, a bar, and two banquet rooms. The bar room is right up front near the entrance. The bar itself is L shaped and has a lot of comfortable stools, and there are also tables/chairs in the bar area if you don't want to sit on a stool. There are a couple big flat screen TVs in there and they regularly show Blackhawks games, other sporting events, and movies.

They have 6 taps, with 5-6 of them being craft beer at any given time. There are no house beers per se, as they are constantly rotating the taps. Recent beers on tap have included Goose Island BCS, Brooklyn Fire and Ice, Local Option American Muscle, Revolution 4th Year, Revolution Anti-Hero, DFH Festina Peche, DFH 60 Minute IPA, Stillwater Saison, Founders Dirty Bastard, Bell's Two Hearted, Southern Tier 2XIPA, Hailstorm Irish Red, Hailstorm Jesus Toast, etc, etc.

They also have a few beers in bottles and cans, but for the most part, the taps are the way to go here.

The food is wonderful. I have eaten here many times and everything is great and the portions are huge. Service is also top notch. This is a family run place, and half the employees are related in one way or another, and they all seem to care about providing good service.

Prices for both food and beer are very reasonable, and considering the size of the portions and the pours, this place is a great value.

Highly recommended!
