Well ..... I think me and my brewing partner are making the trek down to Springfield Saturday for Obama's speech before the convention and I thought that we might as well kill 2 birds ..... find every brew pub between here and there and use his Daughter as a DD. Anyone know of any from like Joliet to Springfield ?? Thanks in advance.

I can't vouch for their quality, but the Beermapping project shows two sites in the Bloomington-Normal area. DeStihl looks like it might be a good lunch/dinner stop. Good luck!

Ja, Springfield has no brew pubs at all. We used to have one long ago but it has since disappeared. You were near our best 'beer bar' in the form of the brewhaus which you possibly stopped in. I'll retroactively cross my fingers for you.
