This is my second visit here because my 1st time travelling through was not during their business hours. Sample the Big Muddy Stout and was a little put off by the taste. No one else was there.

The ambiance is so welcoming and warm, and there’s wasn’t ONE bad beer! We chose to do the $12 tasting, which gifted you a Big Muddy Pilsner. The staff was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable about each beer, and the area, and was a SIUC alumni....More
