Definitely more of a bar, rather than the brewery feel. It has games and tables. Smells like a bar. But the beer was fabulous and the bartender was nice. Got loud in there without music.

Nice little watering hole with a very good, changing beer list! Bands frequently play. Knowledgeable staff will help you pick what you like.

My husband and I enjoy checking out local breweries while traveling. I found this one online and decided to make a quick stop. Having been to several breweries, this was more a bar. We asked for a flight or maybe half pours, but they only served pints. They had probably 6 of their own brews and a big selection of... More

We saw this place on a map and realized we were nearby on our beer tour of Chicago, so of course we stopped by. But rather than finding ourselves in a tap room, we were in a dive bar! This was a really different scene for a brewery, and we really enjoyed the change of pace. I was only disappointed... More

Great beer selection! You can bring in food or get it delivered. The staff is awesome!!! They have live bands sometimes. There is usually always room to sit!

This small micro-brewery offers several of it's own beers as well as a nice assortment of rotation guest taps. Small, quiet and friendly - worth the trip.

This place was a dive, not a craft brewing co like you might suspect. Not very clean and smelled bad. Dark, and plenty of coors light banners. Was very disappointed.

Just blocks west off Route 83 on St. Charles Road, Lunar is a high octane micro brewery/bar. They don't serve food, but there are a number of restaurants near by and the owners are happy to have you order to go and bring it in. Baba Karams is just 5 blocks west. Great little place to grab a micro and... More

I went to this place thinking it was going to be completely different. It was a typical Chicago style bar. Kind of rude bartender, several beers to choose from and only two T.V's. Considering they are a brewery, I was not impressed with their IPA. Beer is beer at this place. No reason to rave, and no reason to return!

I saw that this place had an excellent rating, so I came here to try a few beers. I asked for a flight but as impolitely informed that they don't do those. Fine. I got the Moondance IPA instead. Meanwhile and curiously enough, the staff was still cleaning up from the previous night—mopping the floors, putting down barstools, etc. At... More
