Carlisle brewing company Rockford, Illinois.

A ten year old brewery in a 100 year old building, Carlisle has a pleasant brew pub beside the Rock River.  It has a handsome facade on State St., pictured below as daughter and nephew enter.
Carlisle brews most of the popular styles: wheat, pale, Scottish, red, brown, IPA  (not as hoppy as Northwest tastes go for ), and a couple of more adventurous types. I tried Uncle Jules, a Belgian hybrid  , part Dubbel, part Trippel, with the sort of hops that gives a grapefruit flavor to the finish.
