I went to both Triple C and Heist yesterday, plus a repeat stop at Birdsong on the way home. Can't add too much to tozmervo's review.
The Triple C space is nice and the beers are good. Will love stopping here on my train ride uptown for Bobcats games.
The Heist space is extremely cool with tons of money obviously spent, and the food was really good. The burgers and pizza and pretzels with beer cheese app were all great, except that we got way too few pretzels for the generous serving of beer cheese dip. Oh well, we used the rest of the dip for our side tots with the burgers.
However, our group of 3 didn't like the beer at all, and we're NOT beer snobs. We tried all 11, and we found them all to be a little watery, under-carbonated, and sort-of flavorless. The Blueberry Blonde was close to being okay for its style, but that's not a style I get very fired up about. The Hefe was close too, but again, it's hard to have a Hefe that truly lights your fire. The Red and Trippel were okay, but far from the quality coming out of the other breweries. It was really a disappointment.
Birdsong was a delicious and consistent end to the evening.
