Visited Two Brothers on a Sunday afternoon. It wasn't too crowded, but it was still a fun atmosphere. The place is a little hard to find--we made a few wrong turns and had to come back around to it, but we got there eventually. The indoor seating area is large, and there is some outdoor seating as well. The bar itself is pretty small. The beer selection was great, both of Two Brothers stuff and of stuff from other breweries. There was one brewery only release from Two Brothers, which was an IPA when we were there, along with the usual stuff and a few seasonals. Our server was very knowledgable and was able to make some great recommendations based on what we told him we like and don't like. The food here was awesome. Far above what I would expect from tap house food. The portions were huge, too, so we had some great leftovers to take home. Definitely going back whenever I have a chance.

What a cool place, besides having a complete assortment of all of two brothers current offerings and some special ones as well, they have an unbelievable beer menu featuring some of the finest beers in the world. How often do you see Angel's Share or DueS on a beer menu. The food was fantastic with many of the recipes featuring their solid beers. They even had this fantastic Almond Cream soda which was great for my non beer drinking wife.
The only drawback is bring a GPS, this place is out of the way, even knowing that I still drove by it multiple times, there is some sort of local zoning law that prohibits them from any large signs, so be prepared for that.
Also very cool to see all their Giant Oak Fermentors, very unusual and cool.

I am just starting off here at Beeradvocate and have been excited to try some new beers out. So when I learned that the Two Brothers Brewing Company was so close to home I had to try it. So I treated my girlfriend and I to a night out.
For a Friday, the environment was really nice, it wasn't overly croweded (which is what I expected). Every table and seat was filled, but they have enough room to make it very comfortable.
The service was very kind, quick, and helpful. The food was amazing, and my girlfriend agreed. I had their beer brat and she had their cheese burger. The food will remind you of something you would make on your grill at home, simply amazing. As far as beer goes, I had their second edition seasonal (Heavy Handed IPA 2560 Willamette), it is very good! Just take a look at their reviews on this website.
If you are in the Chicago area I urge you to give the Two Brothers Tap House a try! Great service, great food, and especially great beer. I will definitely be making another visit.

I try to make it to the Two Brothers Tap House at least once a month. This review is based on an accumulation of visits.
Atmosphere: I love the atmosphere here. It's a real laid back, fun place to hang out and unwind after a long week of work.
Quality: Quality of beer and food is always top notch. I've never had a bad pour or dirty glasses.
Service: The service is usually pretty great. The bartenders do a great job attending to you without being in your business. Plus they're fun to talk to when they have some free time. Service out in the dining area has been sketchy a couple of times. I usually just sit at the bar now, unless with a bigger group.
Selection: Most of the time there is a beer on cask. Occasionally there is a special tap house only beer. They have 2 house made sodas as well for those non drinkers that are really good.
Food: The food is high quality ingredients and freshly made. Favorites for me are the chicken wings, tap house burger with fresh cut fries or fresh cut sweet potato fries and the fish and chips.
Overall, this is my favorite place to hang out and enjoy craft beer.

Turn left...then make an immediate left...then first right...goto second street on your left....turn and it is on you right! Where?? I don't see any signs!!! For those you have visited Two Bros....know exactly what I am talking about...it is very difficult to find..I mean there are no signs....if it were not for the beer trucks outside you wouldn't find it! HOWEVER, this place is always busy....the locals know exactly where it is and enjoy every savor dish their kitchen and drip from their taps!! The food here is excellent, but menu is somewhat limited....although perfect if you ask me...the beer in general is very very good....I am quite partial to the Cane&Ebel. Some of the atmosphere diminishes as you get away from teh bar area and into the dining area. It is very industrial with windows looking into the warehouse/production (where the real magic happens)! The place is best if you can get a hightop in the bar area that is encompassed by big flat screens! Highly recommend this establishment!

Another regular for me and the wife. Can't go more than a few months without another visit. Both locations are fun and worth the trip.
Great food (try the fish tacos) and great beers on tap.
Brewers coop is very convenient for any home brewers out there. I've made some quality beers from their kits and purchased other supplies when needed.
Recently added coffee beans to the list of items for purchase - worth the try and a nice complement after a good meal and several good beers.

Have been coming to this place for a while now and really really enjoy it. I am amazed at how many people I see here seeing as this place is nearly impossible to find, it's a cool thing to see an industrial parking lot full of cars on a Friday night, completely unexpected.
When you walk in, you can immediately tell you are walking into a brewery, the aroma is hard to miss. The decor is odd but fitting I think, very modern, big metal posters of the Two Brothers beer hung up on the walls, drywall, this is not your typical kind of pub.
Selection at first was rather low key, the full line up of Two Bros. beers plus a bottle list. Now though they offer up a brewery only release, an expanded bottle list, and at the moment a 2006 Aged Hop Juice which is absolutely fantastic.
Staff is incredibly friendly and knowledgeable, also I came here with a large group on a Friday night a few months ago and was given a tour of the brewery.
The food, at least the dishes I've had are fantastic, the fish tacos are amazing, though I wish they gave you more than 2 tacos for the 11 dollar price tag that comes along with it, the Fish and Chips are also good, massive portions there, but not nearly as good as the tacos. The french fries, the regular not the sweet potato kind, are great as well.
A great place if a bit pricey, a meal for two with a couple of beers each is going to be around 40 bucks, but hell I think it's worth it when you add up all the other factors that this place gives. Will be coming back many more times.

Two Brothers Tap House is inside the warehouse that houses the brewery. The warehouse itself is not exactly easy to find, because it's hidden off of a secondary highway. Thanks to the miracle of Sat Nav, I found it. Without it, I would have had to call for directions. The hidden location doesn't deter the locals. I was there on a Friday night, and the place was hopping.
The Tap House has seating for perhaps 90 people. There's a small bar area at the back, while the rest of the seating is made up of tables and chairs. Aside from large prints of Two Brothers beer labels, the walls are bare. Behind the bar is a wall of windows that look into the brewery. The floor is concrete, the duct work exposed, and there are no dividing walls. That combination makes for a fairly loud room.
Despite the noise and sparseness, the vibe here was really good. Everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves. My waitress was wonderful, and knew all there was to know about the various beers. The food; which was a mix of sandwiches, plus some Italian and Mexican items, was quite tasty.
All of Two Brothers' regular beers were on-tap, plus one cask and one Tap Room Only offering. As a nice plus, all of the beers were being served in appropriate glassware. I ended up buying a Two Brothers tulip to take home with me.
Overall, I had a most excellent time. Next time I'm in IL, I'll be back.

I attempt to purchase at least half of my beer locally. Of all our Chicagoland breweries, Two Bros is my favorite. That's nothing against Half Acre, Metro, Emmett's, Fitch, Goose, Flossmoor, etc.. But Two Brothers', in my mind is the best, up and down the offering (regular and seasonal).
I'm a fan of the tap house as well. I've been a number or times and rotate between the burger and the pulled pork. Sweet potato fries are fantastic. While the atmosphere and decor of the taproom is average, I think the brewery tour is very good. They do a great job of explaining process and equipment and with humor.
Note: I live in the Loop and its a pain in the ass for me to get out to Warrenville. But I make the trip 3 or 4 times a year anyway. Check it out if you've never been.

I really enjoy Two Brothers Tap House and Brewery every time I visit. The food is really good, the beer is good also. The atmosphere is good with that of a brewery type environment, the service is really good, and the beer/food selection is really good also. The burgers are all organic and hand made, some with halapeno's if desired, the fish tacos are good, and their Cajun dishes are really good. The beer is always good and they give brewery tours on weekends with beer tastings. Two Brothers also hosts private party's but that is for you all to call about. Two Brother's also bought the Round House in Aurora and they are up and running, go for a visit there too!
