What I did
Emmett's Tavern and Brewing Company
The brewpub is in downtown West Dundee, which in itself was kind of nice to find after spending three days driving around the west Chicago suburbs. There are a lot of strip malls there, so a real small town downtown was kind of refreshing. The pub is split into two sections, one for bar patrons and one for dinner. Handsome is the best way to describe the establishment. There is a lot of dark wood, and it is a very pleasant atmosphere. It was also quite crowded for a Thursday night. There were quite a few dinner patrons as well as people there just for the good beers. I also noticed that I was on the lower age range on the bar side.
Since they weren't showing the game, I only ended up having one beer there before heading out. It was a pretty good English Pale Ale called . I also had a caprice turkey burger, which was fantastic!
This is a recommended stop if you are in the west Chicago suburbs. I would have liked to have stayed for another pint, but the game was beckoning elsewhere.
