This is Oak Parks first brew pub and its first brewery. If you like artisanal beer this is the place. They actually brew the beer on site behind a big glass panel while you are there. I talked to them while they were brewing their signature beer Frank Lloyd Rye. In case you are not familiar with the area the architect Frank Lloyd Wright lived and worked here. The area is a tourist destination for admirers. The brewery is also sharing a space with Hamburger Mary's a drag review. The last time I war there the performers were taking a break out on the sidewalk. Shades of RuPaul. Colorful indeed. The food at the brewery is also quite good. They seem to specialize in great hamburgers. The owner is Jim Cozzens and he is a great guy you should meet. Dig the wild and crazy 30 second beer review he had done.
