This is my first review on BA so here we go. This is my favorite local watering hole and felt they deserved the credit they're due. This place is amazing for a town like Rockford for any craft beer lover. 9 out of 10 bars in the area are BMC only sports or dance bars and look at you funny when you try to order craft. This place serves NO BMC at all! Knowledgeable staff are helpfull with recomendations and updates on what is new. Prices are very reasonable, most pints 3-4 dollars, with nothing over 6. Last night my bartender gave me a mix of Rogue Double Chocolate Stout and Left Hand Milk Stout she dubbed the Milk Chocolate. Food is not made on sight, but is delivered from the place across the street. Delicious gyros and other sandwiches. Would recomend to anyone looking for a a laid back place to have a good craft.

This is the best selection of craft beer you will find in Rockford. Not only is the beer cheap ($3+), but the staff is friendly, the atmosphere is warm & cozy, and the crowd is usually pretty interesting. I enjoy coming here at least once a week for the constantly updated beer menu.

This is a GREAT place for a variety of craft beers. I had a couple of mugs of Founders KBS last night.. What a smooth beer on tap. Nick has recently had CBS on tap also. Being a Stout person, the selection is awesome with at least 4 to choose from this week. Stone Arrogant bastard, Founders Breakfast Stout Rogue Nitro Stout along with a couple of brown ales including Smuttynose Old brown Dog. I believe they have 16-20 beers on tap right now.
Very friendly people at this small 70s looking micro pub..

The Regal Beagle with a great selection of beers! Decor is very 70s with paintings of nudes with the nipples brushed out, dark lighting, wood paneling, and furniture that could have come out of a. . . well, '70s bar.
The fireplace is warm and cozy in the winter and the place has a strong following of regulars who tend to be either older like me (40+) or gen Y literary snobs (meant in a friendly way!) who want a good conversation and good beer.
The beer selection is wide ranging and ever changing, making Oasis a fun place to come with a hint of mystery. I always have that "Oooh! That sounds good" moment when I browse the beer menu and there is typically something for everyone.
Don't come here for the food. I like a good Uncle Nick's Gyros as well as anyone, but food is not why you come to Oasis. Come for the beer, the friendly patrons and staff, and for the fireplace on a cold winter night.

I've been going to Oasis about once a week (sometimes once every two) for the past 2 years. I love this place. The bartenders are extremely nice, and always willing to chat. The place has an old 60s-70s tavern feel, with Don Quixote paintings lining the walls. 26 craft beer taps, with ONLY craft beer. They're all the cheapest I've seen in the Rockford area by far, and they rotate selection every week. No Guinness (usually) and never PBR.
However, this does not deter the hipsters from running amok in this place on weekend nights. Hipsters are why I can't rate the service and atmosphere higher; they come in fleets, talking about how the new Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs album is so understated, how they made their own scarves from hemp, and their new fixie bikes are organic.
All this aside, they deliver delicious gyros and BBQ fries from next door for cheap, or you can take a nice drunk stroll over to the gyro shop (open til like 2 AM) and chuckle at the antics of Rockford degenerates that come out of hiding when the sun goes down. Either way, it's a great time, and a great place to drop in.

Now, this is a place that deserves justice. And I say this because of what I just read on the last review. Because of my job, I travel a lot, and I've been to so many craft beer places, and The Oasis Micro Pub is awesome. I'm glad there is a place like this one in a small city like Rockford, which specializes in high quality craft beer, and quality craft beer only. You go in there and find a nice, quiet, friendly atmosphere. Don't know who's been to the Monk's Kettle in San Francisco but The Oasis kind of reminds me of it. The staff members are very pleasant, and quite knowledgeable about the beers. The beer menu helps a lot though; every beer listed on it, comes with a brief description that, pretty much gives an idea, of what a beer will be like when tasted, and how reasonably priced they are (come on people, it's craft beer) As far as choices, you can choose from 20 different taps! Really! From Founder's like: Dirty Bastard, or Rogue's Xs Scotch Ale, to Ballast Point's Sculpin which was put on tap just a few days ago. Hey! I even got to try The Sea Monster Imperial Stout which was one of my girlfriend's favorite; too bad is retired though. I don't think I've got enough space here to list all the great beers I've had at this place; you'd have to come and see for yourself. Overall, this is place is amazing, it's got a lot of potential and choices for the beer connoisseur. I can't wait to see this place being expanded, I mean, don't get me wrong, considering winter is around the corner, this is the perfect place to go, and spend the evening right next to the fireplace. I give The Oasis Micro Pub and AAA+ and I sincerely recommend it to people who wanna try something they rarely find anywhere else.

We love this place! It's quaint, cozy and the beer selection is awesome. If you can appreciate a nice craft beer, then this is the place and they have something for every palate. They rotate their kegs after a couple of months so the beer selections are as fresh as possible. The chairs are comfy and the overall atmosphere is warm and inviting, especially in the winter next to the fireplace! You don't have to worry about trying to talk over loud music, which can also be a plus if you are in he mood for a quiet evening out. The bartenders are very friendly and know their beer. This is THE place to go if you are into craft beer in Rockford, just don't even think about asking for a domestic beer because they don't serve them here.
