Visited on a Friday night around 9pm in February. Got one of the last tables. Service was attentive. The high ceilings make this a noisy place. Music wasn’t especially loud, yet the four of us had real trouble hearing each other. Got a cheese spread app that was ok and Friday night fish fry with a really thick batter. Started with a flight. The AcK pale ale was bad. Very astringent aftertaste. Grapefruit DIPA was better, but that’s relative. Golden coffee ale was a step in the right direction, and the Baltic Porter was solid. Our table managed to try most of the 13(!) beers on menu, including one that wasn’t, and determined that EBC’smuch better at darker beers than paler ones. IMO they should pare the selection and concentrate on a core selection. I don’t know what they want to be known for, unlike More in VP or Noon Whistle. Work to be done. Will return as the beer garden has potential.

I have been here three times now and thought it is time to do a review.

Let’s start with the Physical space. It is very nice. They did a great job of making this older building into an attractive brewery/tap room. High ceilings, nice customer iron work, and attractive furniture add to the ambiance. The bar is along the south wall and seats maybe a dozen. There are large windows on the west and north sides so you get some nice natural light.

They have a really nice beer garden and often have live music on weekends.

Service at the bar is topnotch with friendly and knowledgeable tenders. I wish the young leaning wait staff was as attentive. You can a long time between beers if you are sitting outside.

The beers are well done. I think I counted nine house beers plus a special beer available to their mug club members. I enjoyed their Helles, IPA & APA and really tried to like their Kolsch but it was a near miss.

I have had their food but will wait until later to review as I wasn’t really paying that much attention to it.

This is a nice addition to the Elmhurst beer scene.

Kinda busy on Sat afternoon for just opening 3 weeks before. Staff was friendly, selection of beers were good. Food was available and looked good. Kid friendly for those who care. We had 4 beers and all were above average. Parking might be tight. Co-owner spent time telling us about the beers. Good start!

Large space with a bar and tables to accommodate a lot of people. Brewing vessels are directly behind the bar so there is that warm stale beer smell in the air. Quality of the beer is below average. Service at the bar was decent. They do have a large selection of their own beers to choose from. I did not try any food.
