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!

Nice place right near downtown. I was really happy to near this was independent of AB. Nice list of 10-15 beers, including some rarities. I love they list "Brewpub Exclusives". Cost was about $5 for 20oz. Staff was great, even let my father try a bit of Bourbon County for free. I would definitely make it back.

Been going here since it opened . Has had itís ups and downs but always can count on a couple of good, unique beers. Food is pretty tasty, though doesnít seem as good now as in the 90s. Can get pretty crowded on the weekends.

Was waiting to visit this place for ages. Turned out to be a bit of a disappointment. The interior is impressive lots of would with observation windows to the brewery. The service however lacked any kind of enthusiasm or knowledge beyond the basics. Selection was as expected, goose island. Had the bourbon conty which was great. The food however was a rip of. Ordered the cheese and meat platter for sharing, it was so small that I though what they brought was only part of it. Very overpriced, plus is its right next to binnys!

Very large place, huge inside. More of a restaurant atmosphere that has a central bar area on the inside. Lots of room to move around, even when busy, which is nice. Pretty good service. A little disappointed by the tap-list. Donít get me wrong - they had *lots* of beers on tap, but many of them werenít particularly interesting. I mean, I wasnít expecting Bourbon County on tap, of course, but I guess I wasnít in the mood for Milds & Bitters. Maybe itís that time of year, I guess. However, their Berliner was very nice. Didnít get food, but it looked like they had a nice menu with lots of food. Relatively good pricing - they offer some beers in "half" sizes. I wish they did this for all of them, instead of just a select few. Overall, a good visit. Expected a little more, but Iím still glad to have stopped.
Update: stopped in again on my most recent visit to Chicago. Got some food this time... The pulled pork sandwich was great, as was the hummus. Much better tap selection this time around. Couple new barrel aged beers & saisons that were all pretty tasty. Bumping up my rating, this visit was much better.

We were freaking out !!!
We took 4 flight of 5 tasters. We didnít been able to cover the menu. It wasnít our first place neither our last for the day, but if we knew about the Bourbon County release, we would have plan to stay for the night !!!
Nest time for sure.
Great food, great service.

Went here after Local Option was way too crowded for more than one beer. Night and day. Got two seats at the bar, immediate and personal service. The food was awesome and the beers were never bad. You should visit this one for sure.

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.
