Great beer if you are a GI fan and food was solid as well. Nice having Binnyís across the street. Stopped in again November 22, 2011, and had to up the ratings slightly. This place is great, tried some stuff on cask and they were all great. Had the Cuban and it was amazing. Need to get here more often.

That I have not rated this is not only foolish but irresponsible. This place is a landmark even if you donít live in Chicago, or Illinois, OR EVEN the Midwest. Great wood trim, great bartenders, great events, and always something worth the trip on tap, be it a special imperial, a barrel-aged, or just a limited hoppy ale. I love this place for its longevity, its tenacity and its status. I always feel welcome in here, even if I am toting multiple luggage pieces. This is my first time in Chicago without visiting, and let me say I am jonesing. Hereís to another 21 years.

Easily, without question, GI Clybourn is holy as water as far as Iím concerned. They do extremely solid cask-conditioned ale, and seemingly everytime I visit [be it the next day, or the next month] there are more than a couple new beers available. Very friendly, knowledgeable staff, excellent food(particularly brunch!), proper glassware for most styles, take-home growlers, nice gft shop, British-style bar area, etc. But what happened to free samples? Either way, this is just a gorgeous place to spend an afternoon of drinking and return in the evening for a nightcap after emptying your wallet at Samís, which is right next door. If I die from choking, this is where Iíd like it to be, while savoring an imperial pint of glorious brew from the beer engine.

This is a great place for breakfast/lunch. I donít think Iíve ever walked out of here without a buzz. They have a sampler tray you can get. The food is good. The staff is knowledgable. I include a stop here with a stop at Samís across the street.

had a great time, did not eat there though, but was assured by the folks i was with that it is good. nice GI selection and great staff. good environment to have a few and shoot the shit or just sit in a corner and people watch.

I have been coming to Goose for years. They rotate over 100 beers throughout the year, all good. I like the ambience and look of the bar area (when its not busy). I am biased because the bartenders usually know me, but I always get great service. My favorite beers are the Country Bourbon Stout, Imperial IPA, Mik Stout, Epidurale, and the Demolition. All the beers are so good that its so easy to get ripped because you want to try them all. Food is decent also. Try the pub chips!

A must visit for anyone coming to Chi-town. I good selection of their brews are available and there always seems to be something new on tap. The food is good (love the Stilton burger!) and for those of you with WiFi, you can rate your beer at the bar! The clybourn GI is my favorite place in Chicago! If catching a Cubs game, then Wrigleyville is right across the street, the little brother to the Clybourn location. Overall a 13 for most, for a Cubs fan a 17!

Finally, my first visit here since Ratebeer began. Amazed that they had a parking lot, first of all, in this increasingly crowded area. Huge place, lots of Wawood, I was a bit taken aback by the price, but itís really not so bad for Chicago and for this beer. Only had fries, which were fine, to eat. Very efficient, knowledgeable bartenders, and this is a place that obviously cares about beer...good descriptions, and I saw a growler being filled and heat-sealed. That was cool. Best brewpub in Illinois that Iíve visited (of 10 or so). UPDATE after a couple of newer visits in late 2004: beers continue to impress more, Iíve sampled more of the very good upper-crust pub food, and service has always been good-to-excellent. Possibly my favorite brewpub in America.

Possibly my favorite place on earth... i feel lucky to live so close. Always at least a dozen house beers on tap, food is amazing and atmosphere is very chill.

was in chicago for four days, and was there every day. The food was homewreckingly good, they gave you too much good food and had to be laughing about it in the kitchen as you tried to finish it. THey only served goose island brews, but no matter what style you like, they had a competitor in each one. STOP BY IF NEAR CHICAGO.
