Children and pets1 are always welcome. Any time of day, or night. Hey, who are we to judge your parental skills? I mean, sometimes the need for great beer is simply the overriding factor. Am I right?

1 Friendly doggos only please. (Doesn't it seem weird that we even need to say this?)

Oktoberfest 2023 is right around the corner!


Fri Sept 29 & Sat Sept 30
starting at noon both days


Marzen   Marzen

The limited release of our brand new Oktoberfest Märzen. Brewed in traditional old world German style, but kicked up a notch fib style to a comfortable 6.9% 'cause... why not. Super smooth and delicious!

Brats and Kraut will be available all day and all night on both Friday and Saturday. Hand grilled by the the best chefs in the world! Top 'em with kraut to go full German!

Plus this year we're bringing in fresh scratch baked Apple Strudel from the authentic Jarosch German Bakery in Elk Grove. Trust me on this one... fibs Oktoberfest Märzen, a delicious brat smothered in kraut, and warm apple strudel topped with ice cream.... oh my!

Live music will be outside in the beer garden. And remember, it's FREE... well, the beer and brats aren't, but the renditions of Roll Out the Barrel and Who Stole the Kishka are. Let's (over) do it AGAIN!

If you want great craft beer in a fun NFL space that is NOT a testosterone filled Sports Bar... fibs is your new hang! See you next Sunday! (Please call ahead to reserve your spot if you have a larger bunch.)


Plus... every Sunday, and ONLY SUNDAYS we're now serving our huge $5 Chicago Dogs!

  • Yelp Top 25

  • Come on out and see what all the hub bub is about. It's a great honor to be ranked in the top 25 places to drink in ALL of Chicago's North Shore.

    Tons of great beer always on tap, plus specialty craft drinks, and for you true Chicagoan's... we have plenty of chilled Malort.

    If you're hungry, we'll cook you up a tasty, hot pizza or Bavarian pretzle with our scratch made beer cheese.

    See you soon fibheads!

  • Really good beer. I go to a new brewery a few times a month but this one is worth repeating! We tried 11 different beers and all of them were top notch.

  • Great new brewery in Des Plaines. It's located in an industrial area (natch). Easy parking and a great vibe once you enter. Outstanding! Highly recommended.
