The winery/brewery was entertaining with live music. Small deck. We enjoyed the wine. The bed and breakfast was very close to the road and you could hear traffic noise outside of the house. Inside was quiet. Enjoyed the large bath tub. Wish it was off...More

What a place. what looks like a random spot on the road, turned into a great place to taste some home brew, great conversation and what a place to have a party. Wished I had more time to stick around.

Was excited to go here from hearing they had amazing views. The deck was very small, not enough umbrellas to sit under, the slushies were small and overpriced. One of the members of our group had to return his beer because it tasted like bleach...More

Von Jakob has a great location with great views. They brew several types of beer which are all pretty average, along with their pretty average wine. They have some German-style food which is okay. Their sauerkraut was packaged cabbage mix with Italian dressing on it....More

Very good food, great Beer. Wine was ok but truly masters with their beer making. Was impressed they where open when local restaurants and other vineyards where not.

Wide selection of wine and beer. Last year, we had a great experience at Von Jakob. Unfortunately, this year the service was disappointingly slow. Our favorite beers were the chocolate milk stout, so IL IPA, and hefeweizen.

Stopped to get wine. Wine is refreshing. The honey mead is on of my favorite. They use some local produce as ingredients.
