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.

Stopped in for the 25th Anniversary Party and was glad I did. The atmosphere was nice and the service was good. The beer list was great, as was the food. Value was good too, especially for being in Chi-Town. Iím impressed.

A tickers paradise and just a short CTA ride out of the city Centre. The tap selection is immense. Quality was generally good. Flights were no problem and the service cannot be faulted. Would certainly return.
