There is very little to review here anymore. The Copper Dragon Brewing Company stopped brewing sometime during 2003-2004. It is rumored that they will begin brewing again sometime soon, but that has been said for the past several years.

They do still host musical events at the Copper Dragon, but they are becoming increasingly rare.

Pinch Penny Pub, which is owned by the same person, is next door and is still open and going strong. Beer selection is the standard college-town Bud, Miller, Coors with a smattering of imports that are pretty much Corona, Heiniken, and Guinness.

PPP does have an excellent "beer garden" outdoor seating area. During the school year (fall and spring semesters) it is more or less packed every night. This can be good or bad, depending on your prospective. They have live music almost every weekend (weather permitting) in the beer garden and the cover-charge is ususally $5 or less.

Beer prices vary between moderate-high and inexpensive depending on what you're drinking and what's on special. As for food, their pizza is fairly well known as above average, but not as good as some other places in town.

Service both at the Copper Dragon and Pinch Penny Pub varies greatly. I've had great service and none at all. Because of this, I've given them a "middle of the road" rating. Honestly though, you can't expect too much from college kids who have other things on their mind.

As of Jan. 2008, no bars in IL will allow indoor smoking.
