    Une Annee [the first e is supposed to have a marking over it, and I'm not going to go figure out what code I need to achieve that, so accept this as a disclaimer....]

    Let's start again.

    Une Annee is a Belgian-style brewery and tap room in Niles. I've driven past it dozens of times and never noticed it was there, it being in a small space in an unassuming strip mall.

    They have many flavors and styles of beers available; mostly Belgian sour and fruit types, but I've also seen porters and IPAs here. They have several styles available on tap and sell bombers.

    I know that I like Belgian styles, but I'm not exceptionally well informed about them. I wanted to put this wonderful place on the LTH radar.

    The tap room serves minimal food [pretzels, cheese & crackers].
    This particular mall has evolved into an 'ethnic specialites' mall over the years... I don't know quite how to describe it. There's a movie theater that specializes in South Asian films, Korean fast food, Korean bar, Chinese-Korean food, Filipino food, South Asian food, some other stuff I forget, and Omega Restaurant and Bakery is in the part of the lot nearest Golf.

    So what I'm saying is, there's good beer and interesting food in this mall. Go. Eat. Drink. In happy moderation, of course.

    I like Un Anée; I think it's fun that all you can see from Golf Road is a large, all caps sign "BREWERY." Their Belgians and sours are all top-notch, although a few of the sours were a bit too sour for my tastes. Their non-Belgian, non-sour beers go under the name Hubbard's Cave Brewery; I'm not sure if they're co-owned, or Hubbard's Cave just brews their beers at Un Anée. I think Hubbard's Cave was brewed elsewhere before Un Anée opened in Niles.

    See, nr706 knows where to find the accent mark.

    Show off :wink: .

    Since you're the beer expert, I'll believe you about the Hubbard's Cave/Une Annee distinction. Only been there twice, and haven't been able to figure it all out yet.

    It's all the same brewer. As you said it's just a designation for the non-Belgian style brews. Une Anee and Hubbard's Cave were both brewed in Chicago (around Grand & Ashland) prior to the move to Niles.

    I'm also a fan of their beers. Last time I visited the taproom there was a mojito inspired sour that was most excellent. Cucumber, lime, mint, and lemongrass. I think it was the Le Monde 2017-7.
