Two brothers is about a 30 minute drive from my house. Prairie Rock Brewery was enjoyable, but they ended up closing a year or two ago (expanded into the wrong locations in my opinion). Don't really know of too many other places like that in this area.

Two Brothers is good stuff! They are right down the road from me. Stopped in there last week for a burger and growler.


The word you are looking for is brewpub.

They have one in Downers Grove as well. I don't mind taking home a few growlers. They also have a Homebrewer club.

Limestone on Route 59 in Plainfield is really good. They'll be expanding/updating their menu soon, but the beer is well worth checking out.
