Enjoyed our beer, nice selection of different styles, very friendly and helpful staff. The tap room is a nice wide open space, high ceiling, great place. They don’t have outdoor seating but they can open garage doors to open to the outside and have bar top like seating.

Fun place to go. Always has a big crowd. Some of the best beer I’ve tried. Downers Grove needed a brewery and this place hit it out of the park.

Local craft beers, good selection and changing beers available all the time. Friendly staff and clean brewpub atmosphere. Not much in the way of food available but you can byo pizza, sandwiches,whatever. Would definitely recommend, beers are worth the trip.

Hey John, thank you so much for the nice review! Food is tough, but we try to have a food truck or pop-up at least once a week. I'm glad you enjoyed your trip out to the taproom, and hopefully we'll see you again soon. Cheers!
