I visited the brewery on my birthday, a few weeks ago, with my brother. What could be better?

The brewery itself could be marked with better signage. Really, any signage, as there are currently no signs indicating that, "Yes, you have reached your destination." We just saw several bicycles parked outside, and thought that this must be the place.

Inside, everyone was quite friendly and answered all our questions. We were able to sample a beer while we waited for the brewery tour to begin. The brewery guide knew we wanted to go on the tour and fetched us before he began. Brewery tour is fairly standard, but good amounts of history and reasoning behind the brewery's choices and quirks.

After the tour, you're given a choice to sample three different beers from glasses that hold about four ounces. It's free, so you can't complain.

Atmosphere inside the restaurant was typical of a slightly upscale cafeteria, nothing particularly special, eye-catching, or making me want to stay longer. Hopefully the new brewhouse they just bought will improve on this.

Food was of pretty high quality. I had the bacon-wrapped meatloaf and my brother the fish tacos. Both were very tasty and portion sizes were fairly huge (I took home half).

Selection of beers is: all of their year-round brews, a few seasonals, their root beers, and a few other local Chicagoland brewery offerings. Nothing super-special, but nothing to complain about.

-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.
