Rock Bottom Restaurant and Brewery

94 Yorktown Center Lombard, IL 60148


  • Sun – Thu 11 am – 10 pm

  • Fri – Sat 11 am – 11 pm

This Denver-based restaurant and brewery was founded by Frank Day in 1991, and it’s a must simply because it is within walking distance of City View at the Highlands. Just on the other side of Highland Avenue, this brewery always has 11 small-batch taps on rotation and the food is delicious for a bigger brewery. 

Noon Whistle Brewing

800 E Roosevelt Rd, Lombard, IL 60148 

(630) 376-6895

Hours: Monday – Sunday, 12 pm – 7 pm

Growing up, Brewmaster Paul Kreiner and his extended family spent summer vacations in a small town in central Wisconsin where every day at noon the town whistle blew. The sounding of the noon whistle indicated it was time to crack open the first beer of the day. This tradition was about drinking great beer of course, but more importantly creating lasting memories with family and friends. Come visit us at our original Noon Whistle location where our story began when we opened our doors in 2014!

Afterthought Brewing Company

218 East Saint Charles Road, Lombard, Illinois 60148

  • Thu 4 pm – 8 pm

  • Fri 2 pm – 8 pm

  • Sat 12 pm – 8 pm

This small, locally-owned, family business is part of why we love craft brewing. Their Saison-oriented beers are brewed in 1.5 barrel batches. This focus makes their beer very personal and a lot of hard work goes into making these beers with old-world traditions. Definitely a must-try in the local brewing industry!

Downer’s Grove is where it all started for the founders of locally-owned and operated Alter Beer Co. These guys are all about the unifying power of good beer and love experimenting and having fun with the brewing process. The taproom is a great place to meet in an industrial, modern setting with good people. They love the local community and have recently opened another location in St Charles on the Fox River.
