I donít make it into Chicago very often, but one day we hopped on the Metra and made our way into the city. After a short cab ride from Union Station, we were soon ready to drink some beer. It was 11:40AM as we staked out a corner of the bar... Our goal was to try everything... We finished at 8PM and things were getting fuzzy. We didnít try everything, but we were darn close. I can say that I did not have a bad beer out of the 12 that we tried. I purposely skipped the 312 because I am not that fond of it from the bottle. I have had plenty of Honkers over the years too, so while it is a good beer, I took a pass this time. In between all that beer, we did eat some food. Chicken Enchiladas with Salsa Verde were delicious. A large slice of carrot cake went well with my dark beers. Stilton Burger with garlic fries stood up against the IPA. Veggie chili was spicy with cilantro flavor. The bar was pretty busy all day long and we talked to several groups of people as they came and went throughout the day. Everyone that we talked to was a big fan of the beer. We didnít chat with the bartenders much because they were very busy taking good care of everyone. I donít know when, but I will definitely be back!

Very nice and laid back place. We sat by the bar which was located in the center of the place. Loads of Goose Island beers on tap and bottles. Most interesting was the three barrel aged beers on tap. They serve flights, 10 dollars for 4 different beers. We had a really good time on this Friday evening. Serving was really good and it wasnít too crowded.

Very chill brewpub with a cool atmosphere. Didnít really feel too crowded on a Saturday night (although the snow probably helped that out a bit). They had a great deep-cut rock soundtrack going on, just loud enough to be noticed, but not so loud that you canít talk to people. The wait staff was kind, courteous, and very knowledgeable on the beers they have on tap. They have nearly thirty Goose beers - more than Iíve seen at the majority of tap rooms although not as many as some gastropubs that boast of how many taps. Pretty good food selection too, nothing amazing, but hit the spot nicely: Iím not typically a french fry person, but I was talked into ordering it for the garlic aioli, and was not disappointed! Fair prices, and pretty good for the city.

Stopped in on a Friday around 1 pm for lunch and some beers. Thereís a parking lot adjoining the building, which seemed sufficient, but if they were actually busy, I donít think it would have been enough. The slots were pretty narrow, so I was worried I would have dings on the sides when I came out, but thankfully that didnít happen. Inside there is a lot of nice woodwork with a square bar in the middle with probably 30 taps and two casks. They had all goose island beers on with a huge variety. Lots of styles. They also had a few one off barrel aged beers that were delicious. Our waitress was very attentive and kept beers and water in our glasses. I ordered the Cuban and my buddy ordered the sausage plate. My food was great and he said the same of his. Both looked good. Thereís a nice little gift shop attached that had t shirts, phone cases, stickers, and about tendifferent glass shales to choose from. This is definitely a place I would come back to.

Spent a few hours here over the summer, a welcome respite from the sauna outside. My buddy and I tucked into the multiple barrel-aged options primarily, but were equally impressed with several cask session brews and a nice range of juicy IPAs. Spacious, convivial, and pretty decent food on top of an outrageously good beer selection.

My favorite place in Chicago. I know some others get higher ratings but GIC always has new beers on tap, great food, and is conveniently located if passing through Chicago. I never miss a chance to stop by. Highly recommend

Good "brewpub" feel. Selection is pretty high for a brewpub. Service was fine, if a little slow. Beer is well-priced, food priced a little higher. But the food I tasted was good. Overall good place; would be tempted to come back when Iím in Chicago, even if it is slightly out of the way.

Very cool brewpub. Was packed when I was there. Staff was fairly knowledgeable, prices were high and service was slow. but the tap list rocked and I got to try a ton of new beers.

Had a great time at the Black Friday Tasting Session. I couldnít think of a better place to spend Black Friday. Had a chance to talk and have beers with TheAlum and Adam Jackson. We ordered a few different plates and all the food was above average and just what was needed after sampling all the 2013 bourbon county variations. Prices are what you would expect in the city. I wanted to try more of the brews but I was simply too caught up in drinking as much BCS as I could. I could see returning to this historical brewpub without question.
