The atmosphere is that of a brewery, with windows to view where the magic happens, a bar, dining area and an outside seating area (which I just realized was there recently.) The staff is all friendly, but it is hit or miss as far as being knowledgable on the product goes. I've been very impressed with some, while far from impressed with others, but they are all very approachable and nice.

The quality of the beer is my biggest appreciation of Two Bros. They vary in styles and all are above average in their respective styles, and some are well above average (Hop Juice, Cane and Ebel, and the Red Eye Porter are the most notable.) It's also a bonus that they offer live cask ale, which varies, but I will say that of the couple times I've wanted to have one it was not available that day. It also sounds like they are starting to expand their creative ideas into some barrel aging of certain brews, but are very secretive about it.

Food is definitely a notch above average bar food, but I wouldn't go as far as saying outstanding. It is better than most, though.

As far as price goes, I wish I could give it $$1/2. The price of the beer is reasonable as is most of the food, but there are some items on the food menu and some guest beer bottles that are bordering pricey. However, a vast majority of the food and beer selection is appropriately priced.

Overall, Two Bros is a place I'd recommend not only to beer advocates, but also casual beer drinkers and those just wanting to sit down for some decent eats in a brewery atmosphere. It's also family friendly and serves two good house-brewed pops (cream soda and root beer.)

-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.
