Mikerphone Brewing was the first of now many brewery locations to pop around Chicagoland in the last year. What someone dubbed "Stern-eries" tend to have 4-6 Stern machines that were fresh out of boxes as well as a giant Insider Connected leaderboard. They also happen to be one of the best breweries in the suburbs with a large variety of beer styles including IPAs, sours, pilsners, barrel aged beers, beer slushies and some spirits as well. They host trivia nights the second Thursday of every month if you need a break from pinball and also recently started serving pizza and pretzels all the time as well as hosting a variety of food trucks on busier days. They host pinball tournaments the first Thursday of the month sponsored by Stern pinball. And who knows who you may see if you pay a visit since both Stern and Jersey Jack's factories are just a few miles away.
