Two Brothers Taphouse

Had a free evening for dinner, so I did a search of local brewpubs to try.  Well Two Brothers is a brewery with attached brewpub.  About 45 minutes from work and 30 minutes from home, it wasn’t too out-of-the-way to go visit and was away from the Chicago traffic, so game on.  It was a challenge to find, as it’s in an industrial park and you have to go a certain way around because of a one-way road, the website explains the directions better than my Garmin did.  The building is fairly modern, inside decoration and style is as well.  The building is dividing in two, brewery & co-op (purchase beer making supplies here) and the Taphouse brewpub.  Sat at the bar and then ordered my first beer engined firkin pint of Resistance IPA.  A  solid IPA that I’ll be trying in bottles soon to see how different the freshness affects the taste, see below for picture of menu and pint, the beer was an 8/10.  I then ordered my Taphouse Burger, jalapeno organic patty with cheese and fries.  It was good.  Next up Monarch Belgian White, a smooth refreshing Belgian, almost too sweet, 8/10.  The final beer I had, was a tall Ebel’s Weiss, a hefe that was dynamite, 9/10.  I’ll be buying that again, as well as trying some of their other beers I have passed in the liquor stores because of unfamiliarity.  That will be rectified.

I would recommend visiting if you are able, not only are their beers all tapped and ready to go, they have a decent bottle selection of domestic and import craft brews and on  Saturdays you can tour.  Their menu is reasonably priced with good variety, not just pub standard food.
