On my last vacation I visited three breweries but this is the only brewery that I bought a pint glass from to remember it, so that says something. This place is special and has a great location with some outdoor seating and cozy inside, the staff is super friendly and attentive and of course the beer is on point. I... More

Not only does Lake Bluff distill sprites, it has one of the best micro breweries on the North Shore. Usually there are at least four different brews on tap. All of them are refreshing and available after five o'clock. Arrive earlier and if staff is present, you'll find the welcome mat out. A limited menu is available with food brought... More

The company has revitalized evenings in Lake Bluff with their summer music offerings. The variety of beers has improved markedly since their opening several years ago. The food offerings are courtesy of Maevery's next door and are excellent.

I always try to come here when in town. Excellent beers, good atmosphere and friendly service. It's handily located near the train station and you can drink inside or outside. They do food too

LB Brewing is a great place for a beer on a warm weekend afternoon or after work. The beer is all locally made and there is a great selection. Not much in the way of food but you can order from the restaurant next door.

We were at Lake Bluff Brewing last Sunday in the early afternoon. This place has a great vibe. Vinyls playing in the background, a pile of comic books on the bar for patrons to peruse, and a sophisticated look that could fit in downtown Chicago. I tried the Oatmeal Milk Stout and Honeybadger, and had to go with Honeybadger since... More

Lively place in the heart of the Village of Lake Bluff. Always some interesting brews on tap and they offer flights of the different brews. Honey Badger has become the standard. Light snacks are available, but don't expect to be able to get a meal here. You might want to head next door to Maevery instead.
