Carlyle Brewing Co

My father, a Rockford native, was visiting from out of town and wanted to visit his old stomping grounds. Which meant, finally a reason to cross-off a couple more breweries. Carlyle was our first stop. We ordered a sample of every beer, none of which blew any of us away. However, the location is right in the middle of the downtown area and can accommodate a good amount of people. They have a small menu for food, we ordered a sausage and cheese platter. The beer was decent, if I lived nearby it would certainly be an option – but in general was all middle of the road. There were some higher ABV options, a variety of styles, but no stand outs.
