I really like this place. Good atmosphere, good beer selection, and ok-to-good food. Happy hour from 4-6pm with 1/2 priced appetizers: the calamari was decent, and the quesodilla was quite good. Iím not sure how to judge "selection"... if compared to other brewpubs, the selection is fairly good, usually offering 8-10 taps, including a cask offering. Twice Iíve visited Goose Island on Clybourn, and I have been very happy. Beware of smoke near the bar.

Visited the Clybourn brewpub for the first time in April 1999 and returned in May 2005. GI makes some astoundingly good beers and they had a big selection on tap. The food is good if standard.

On a week evening, the place was relatively quiet, just a few apparent regulars hanging by the bar and surrounding tables. The draught list was absolutely impressive, two imperial stouts, an exceptional Kolsch, a superb strong ale - everything clean and remarkably varied. Although I generally prefer smaller palces, this one makes you feel very welcome, itís not overly noisy, not overly decorated and not too loaded with TVs + the surrounding brick walls are always charming. The staff did not appear all that knowledgeable, but was efficient and task-oriented. I felt I had good service. As far as beer is concerned, this is one of my favourite brewpubs ever.

(Visited 10/2011): Goose Islandís Clybourn location is off Clybourn and North Sheffield on the north side. Parking consists of metered street parking and a space in the shopping center directly across the street. Binnyís is right there too (although I didnít have time to stop there).
The interior is spacious and modern looking with the bar area immediately inside. Restaurant seating elsewhere, and a cool "HOPS" sign made out of incandescent bulbs. Brick archways leading to an indoor patio. The brewing equipment is viewable through a window near the door.
Goose Island has 12 or so of their brews on tap, including many seasonals and special brews. On my visit some of the options included Red Felt Ale, Peach Pundit, Candice (Farmers Market Series), Honest Stout and Uncle Dunkel. All of the beers are above average and enjoyable. Samplers are available as well.
Service on a weekday for an early lunch (they literally had just opened) was good. Both my server and the bartender were friendly and well-versed in the available beers.
Lunch was solid too. My sandwich and fries were very tasty.
Overall this spot is one of the canít miss places to visit in downtown Chicago, and I will definitely try to get there again on future visits.

More than decent brewpub with good brewpub food. Real close to Sam's Wines and Liquors, so you can't avoid visiting this brewpub.

Nice looking pub with lots of dark wood and some cool retro-ish light fixtures. Our server was very friendly and made an effort to keep us happy (especially considering we unknowingly showed up 45 minutes before closing). Great selection... only a single beer that was poor, and several that were really incredible. Fairly inexpensive as well. Good atmosphere and a pretty chill vibe. I enjoyed this place immensely. Wish Iíd been able to stay here longer.

The place has a clean, cookie-cutter, corporate feel to it, but that isnít a bad thing. Itís nicely laid out, efficient, and clean. Tours are conducted here for 5 bucks, but include a good tasting and are always conducted by a brewer. I didnít take a tour, but if I had more time I may have done it just for kicks. Goose Island always has many offerings most of which are pretty tasty. I didnít hit this place up on my first visit to Chicago, but I think this is going to be mandatory on any future stops. I did not eat on my visit.

Nice location, close ti Samís Wine and Liquor litteraly next door. Service was OK if a bit unattentive and rushed. After shopping at Samís, came back for Happy Hour, with better service, and had the Buffalo Breasts, and chicken liver patť, at half price, and 3$ pint...mmmm. Good menu. (Update: happy hour is no longer offered, but the beers still rock)

This was a true must attend for me. Loved that I finally got to Goose Island. Love the tap list, food and brewery tour. A must stop on the Beer bucket list.

Directly on Clybourn Street with parking lot on the side. Clean brick and wood older building with bar in the center and tables in front and on the left. Twelve plus taps with list on chalk boards. All were drinkable brews. Freindly bartender with good knowledge. Interesting selection of food and the chilli was very good. Interesting location with Samís directly next door for package selections.
