I always find this place as a local hangout whenever I go. The staff is very friendly and helpful with their knowledge of the latest beer on tap. The selection is just right. Plus free popcorn.

This place only serves beer that is made nearby. We do drink beer from micro brewers, but could not find any to our liking at Light the Lamp. It was disturbing that the beers were cloudy, not clear. Maybe that's to be expected, but we...More

We go to Light the Lamp on a somewhat regular basis. The beer is always great (I prefer the Red Line Ale.). They keep the popcorn coming. Everyone who works there and the owners are really friendly. We ALWAYS go when the L&M Experience is...More

This is a storefront that serves beer made by local hockey dads. The beer itself was scary to me as it's not clear to see through, it comes very cloudy. It was explained to me that it is not filtered, thus causing the clouding. It...More

My wife and I stopped in here to taste some of their brews. Enjoyed the beers, the Blackhawk's theme, and conversation with the bartender and others at the bar was enjoyable. Definitely coming back. Enjoyed their own version of Black and Tan.

Love Light the Lamp. The staff and owners are friendly. The music is good. The beers are great - all of them! And there is even live entertainment sometimes. The atmosphere is chill unless there's a hockey game, but otherwise I love this place.

This microbrewery has every Blackhawks game on the TV. After each goal the theme song music is turned up, and everyone celebrates. As for the beer, ours was very cloudy, and when queried we were told it is unfiltered. That was too upsetting for us....More

Stopped by today while out on a shopping trip about 1.5 hours from home. This little place has some great beer. We were hugely impressed. Would have brought back a gowler if closer to home. No bottles. Just growlers or drink there. Definitely worth the...More

This spot is a fun evening if you are visiting the area. This is a Chicago Blackhawks themed bar and it gets the best crowds on nights when that team plays. The owners are usually working behind the bar, so the service is good. This...More

their beer selection is great, but they need to work on attracting the right crowd of craft beer drinkers. No food. it is definitely more geered toward hockey fans with hockey nights and what not. which some nights comes first before their beer experience.
