Flossmoor Station Restaurant & Brewery | Suburbs South | Gastropub | Bar
Located in the historic building that once housed the Flossmoor train station, this brewpub is adjacent to the Metra stop—close enough that if you time things right you can be on the train five minutes after taking your last swallow of beer (ideally with a growler for the road—it'll be a good 45 minutes before you're back in the city). The sprawling space is matched by an equally sprawling menu of close to 100 sandwiches, wraps, pizzas, salads, soups, and pastas. It's standard but well-executed pub fare: fries were suitably crispy, artichoke dip sufficiently cheesy, and a pulled pork sandwich nicely tender, though it could have used a little more "beer-b-que" sauce. About ten beers are always on tap, but less well advertised are the half-dozen seasonal beers, which are also the more interesting ones; recent selections included a smoked porter, a barleywine, and a chocolate-vanilla stout. A sampler of all 16 provided not only liquid nourishment but also entertainment, since the server mixed up a few of them and we had figure out which was which (not difficult since the IPA tastes nothing like the saison). Flossmoor Station doesn't get a lot of attention from beer nerds, maybe because most of its brews are fairly traditional, but it deserves more. —Julia Thiel
