Plank Road Tap Room



After traveling the country in search of great beers, we hatched a plan to bring them all right back here, to our home in Elgin. We’ve become a destination for locals and visitors alike.

Whether you’re sitting inside at the bar, at a table among friends, relaxing in the shade on the porch, or hanging out on the patio, we hope to see you soon.

We’re a BYOF (Bring Your Own Food) beer bar in Elgin. You can also check out the events page for the next food truck coming to our neck of the woods and information on special beer tastings and food pairings right here in Elgin, Illinois.

The Trails

Enjoy over a half mile of hiking trails throughout our 7 acre property surrounding Plank Road Tap Room. There are 2 trails available. Both trails start and end in our Woodland Beer Garden. These are private trails and are not open to the general public. A *Trail Pass fee of $2 is required prior to your hike. This fee helps to manage and maintain trails for your enjoyment. Passes can only be purchased during your visit, when opening a tab.

We are a 21-and-over establishment
