I had a family function out in Bolingbrook so I figured as I was sort of in the area I'd check this place out finally.

The location is god awful...nestled in an industrial park with no signage whatsoever to mark the building. It's a giant white industrial/warehouse building that I almost missed had it not been for the group of people walking in the doors.

As soon as you enter you are in the 'gift shop' area and hostess/register area. You can buy tshirts, 6packs, a variety of malts, glassware, and all kinds of homebrew equipment. I picked up a weizen glass for 5.99, awesome!

As we waited (45min) for our table, we went to the bar area and had a few drinks. The dining area was much smaller than I had expected, especially since the outside building looks massive. The bar staff was great and let do a few tasters before settling on a Can and Ebel and Imperial Stout.

We all were seated finally and I ordered the fish taco which was awesome! Everyone in my group generally enjoyed the food very much. You can also get cinnamon root beer and almond cream soda for those that don't drink. The guest bottle list is decent, although why bother when you got house taps right there...

Overall, I can't say I'd make the 30 mile trek out to the boondocks again, but it was a fun experience to finally see this place.

This is a really great place to go have dinner and a beer or three. There is a nice bar are that has a good amount of tvs to watch sports or whatever else may be on as well as a true dining area that is a bit quieter and more relaxed. Noise is not high, but not low either due to the low ceiling. There is a lack of visible metal so that helps dampen the noise quite a bit. Food options are wide ranging and are all very well prepared. The beer list is extensive with a wide variety of options from their year-long offerings to seasonals and special one time or small batch releases. Service was quick, efficient, and very nice/upbeat. Definitely a place that I will go back to.

-Greeted by raw beer ingredient smell upon entering. That might appeal to some, but I don't like it much. Interior is pretty bare bones, but in a much less cool way than the usual 'stark industrial' look many brewpubs have. A screened-in outdoor section is fun for a nice day.
-Good selection of beer, both their own on draft and guest bottles. There's usually some brewery-only and R&D beers available, all good-great+.
-Food is not gourmet, but it's pretty darn good for bar food. Think sandwiches, fries, quesadillas, etc.
-Service is great.
-Small window to peer into the brewing floor.
-Merch and clothing, glassware, even raw beer ingredients are available for sale.

It isn't much to look at, but this is a pretty essential and enjoyable place for a western (far western) suburbs brewery tour.

I've only been here twice, but each time I was treated well and the second time (several days later) I was remembered promptly, along with my preferences, when I sat down at the bar.
They currently don't brew the beer here, but in Illinois. I look forward to see how their recipes translate to here and have the opportunity to chat with the brewers themselves.
Food is better than typical bar fare, a broad variety of tastes, good happy hour deal (half off all appetizers). Biggest challenge would be parking, but coming here when Happy Hour opens at 4pm means there's plenty of street parking nearby.
I recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a nice, convivial, not too trendoid kind of place, that's definitely not too Scottsdale.

I used to love coming here, until a bartender named Paul was a jerk. He was extremely rude. I should go back it's been 3 years now.

Food sounded A LOT better than it was. Service was subpar at best. I was the only one (of 3 adults) drinking, and this was glaringly unappreciated. I wanted to love this place because I have much local love for Two Brothers and their beers, but I was plain sad when I left. And the beers on tap tasted exactly like the beers out of the can.
