This brewerks has a great variety of craft beers. Their own beers are exceptional. from IPA's to stouts. While they don't have a kitchen, they often bring in outside food vendors. Their Sunday brunches done by the Milan Hy-Vee chef are to die for. The prices are reasonable, and the food is made to order. The choices vary each time, and it's hard to choose because every selection looks so good.

I went in to see the collaboration brew between Radicle Effects & Tangled Roots Brewing Company. It was such a great experience. The owner was great and kind, the brewers we awesome, and the bartenders top notch. They have the best Bloody Mary my wife and I have had in a long, long time. Don't forget to try the garlic stout, delicious. If you are looking for a great time, a little out of the ordinary, come to Radicle Effects.

This brewery is close to the Augustana College campus. There are a lot of national microbrewed beer available with usually two of their own beers on tap.

The bartender was a good guy, always engaging in conversation. During the summers, it is a bit empty inside with college students out on break.

Will definitely stop by again.

Two rooms, one with bar. Back area has pool table, tables and the most uncomfortable benches. My butt was hurting. Screen windows very nice, loved the fresh air. Painting is cool, love the hop border. Had the Thursday special, IPA for $2.50. Have feeling the other beers would be expensive. This was my first visit and it was awkward. I didn't know if someone would wait on me in other room or not. When I went to bar and asked, patrons laughed at me. Didn't find the bartender gal too helpful. My service really was disappointing until my friend arrived that comes there a lot and knows the ropes. They do have snacks if you ask. It has potential, but service could be improved.

A small facility catering to the local college crowd (Augustana). One of their beers is usually on tap along with a number of guest beers. They also have a good selection of bottles. Their own beer is ok. The guest beers range from ok to superb. Two rooms are available - one with the bar and one with just tables looking out on the main street. No food is available but can be ordered locally. A nice place to get away from everything in the afternoon. The only bad thing is their tendency to play music too loud. They will turn it down if asked.

REB is the best bar/nano brewery in the QC for craft beer period.
- Usually two rotating REB beers on tap
- Rotating taps of guest brews
- Tap take overs
- Diverse bottle and can list
- Small selection of Tequila, Whiskey, and Scotch at the best prices around
- Signature bloody Mary
- Great Staff
- Great clientele easy to strike up a conversation on any subject
- Unique Decor
- Pool, Darts, Pinball

Sports fans will generally be able to watch games but won't hear the game sounds as music takes top billing. They have snacks for sale and free Gardettos available but no menu. Occasionally they have a guest chef on Fridays bring in a unique small menu for sale. I would dismiss the review titled "not a brewery" as utter nonsense crafted by a grumbletonian milksop of the highest degree.

Way over price for beers you can get from the local Grocerie Store. I've seen better home brew set up than this spot. I guess they never have the same beer for more than one mini keg except Shlitz. The beer they brew is something out of a beginners book of home brewing like the set up. Overall 10 drafts never the same utilizing all the local distributors old unwanted stock no one would buy. Big expensive waist of time!

I'm shocked no one has reviewed this place yet. It is a nano-brewery and alehouse. The owner/brewmaster brews creative, tasty and well-crafted beers. They also rotate their other taps bringing in craft beer from all over the country and world. Their beer board is always balanced by style and ABV which offers a wide-variety to choose from. Also, they have an extensive bottle and can list. They do offer delicious meads and ciders typically. The signature Bloody Mary recipe is the best in town. They also have a small shelf containing hand selected tequilas, scotches, bourbons and other tasty liquors. The staff is as knowledgeable and friendly as they come. No arrogance here. They truly want you to find the right beverage and enjoy it. The crowd is as eclectic as the music which makes for an awesome experience. Definitely like their Facebook page because they have special events like tap take overs and outside food vendors. If you haven't been yet, you must go.
