Limestone Brewing? Plainfield IL, Chicago burbs
« on: August 11, 2011, 07:39:13 PM »
Anybody have experience with this place?  I'm heading to Minooka in the morning to visit relatives and wanted to try a new brewpub tomorrow night, this one is fairly close and seems to have a decent beer menu.

FYI both places were excellent, I wrote a little summary on the NB forum so I won't duplicate it here but we enjoyed this trip.

Might as well cross post it Lennie.  Otherwise I'll never see it. ;)

That was my thought, I only ever look at the general and AG subforums.  I hate having all these separate forums, when your two major forums don't roll over topics daily then I think theres no need to segregate.

Then again, nobody asked my opinion.

Have you been to Limestone?  I liked it pretty well.  Two Brothers is excellent too.  Limestone is a little more of a formal dining experience, Two Brothers makes the more interesting beers.  Both of them have an excellent bottled beer selection, Limestone has guest tap beers.  They had Ommegang Aphrodite on tap, that was a highlight of the evening.
