Have been coming to this place for a while now and really really enjoy it. I am amazed at how many people I see here seeing as this place is nearly impossible to find, it's a cool thing to see an industrial parking lot full of cars on a Friday night, completely unexpected.

When you walk in, you can immediately tell you are walking into a brewery, the aroma is hard to miss. The decor is odd but fitting I think, very modern, big metal posters of the Two Brothers beer hung up on the walls, drywall, this is not your typical kind of pub.

Selection at first was rather low key, the full line up of Two Bros. beers plus a bottle list. Now though they offer up a brewery only release, an expanded bottle list, and at the moment a 2006 Aged Hop Juice which is absolutely fantastic.

Staff is incredibly friendly and knowledgeable, also I came here with a large group on a Friday night a few months ago and was given a tour of the brewery.

The food, at least the dishes I've had are fantastic, the fish tacos are amazing, though I wish they gave you more than 2 tacos for the 11 dollar price tag that comes along with it, the Fish and Chips are also good, massive portions there, but not nearly as good as the tacos. The french fries, the regular not the sweet potato kind, are great as well.

A great place if a bit pricey, a meal for two with a couple of beers each is going to be around 40 bucks, but hell I think it's worth it when you add up all the other factors that this place gives. Will be coming back many more times.

-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.
