I come here about once or twice a week and love the small personal atmosphere this place has! Not to mention the wonderful beer you can get in all sizes (including to-go growlers), the taps are always rotating. It gets busy on the weekend evenings, but there's always seats outside! They jam records and promote local artists all the time.... More

Some of the best beer is in the village of Lake Bluff. A short bar menu has food delivered from the restaurant next door. But, you came to taste award winning beer, brewed by a local Brewer. This is a casual family friendly place. Are you by cycling the North Shore Bike Trail? Make this an afternoon destination,

Meet your friends over an award-winning beer at Lake Bluff Brewery. It's hard to get a table, and even harder to choose a beer from their amazing list. Summer seating expands the options, but it is very cozy in winter.

We visited this place on what was SUPPOSED to be or last day in Chicago. It wasn't busy (Sunday afternoon in a small town) and the two people on staff were extremely nice and accommodating. Wonderful wine and beer. Nice atmosphere. I plan on visiting this place again and again.
