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!

Greta place, if not a bit hard to get to. Their beer is well worth the trip. Usually have 6-9 beers on tap that rotate quite a bit. Food and service are good. Did I mention the beer?

Compared to the Wrigleyville location, this looks more like a family restaurant. Big booths and an ugly bar. More touristy as well.

Iíve visited here about a dozen times on my way to Samís Wine & Spririts or after seeing a play at the nearby Steppenwolf Theater. Iíve never eaten, merely enjoyed a pint. Iím generally happy with their tap selection, which always features a few beers they donít bottle. What annoys me is that they wonít growler their best beers. One time I convinced the manager to let me purchase a growler of Old Abbernation Barleywine ($30), but among theyíre other better beers, Iíve not had luck with Imperial Brown Goose, Imperial IPA, or their Imperial Stout. Even when I explain other raters and members of our local beer club will be trying it, they simply shrug their shoulders. As a final note, one should be aware that the list of taps on the website is not necessarily representative of their current selection, so Iíd advise calling ahead to avoid disappointment. It happened to me once with the Impy Stout. UPDATE with FOOD: Stilton Burger was disappointing. Subpar burger with decent toppings. Meat was greasy and not very good (i.e. frozen, preformed patty)

Very happy that the friend I was visiting lived only two blocks from here. Very nice looking bar/restaurant. Lots of selections too, and news on whats coming next. Good menu too, whether you want just appetizers, or are looking for a full meal, lunch or dinner. Friendly staff. But it really is all about the beer isnít it?

Excellent place. Iíve only ever visited there on afternoons, and immediatelly getting a seat has always been possible. Staff is very friendly, and often will sit down with me to look over the notes Iím taking on their beers. Always a good selection of seasonals and specials on tap, and the prices are very reasonable for Chicago. Food is excellent and portions are huge. A must visit, as Samís Wine is across the street. Iíve never had problems parking at Samís, heading to Goose Island for lunch and a few beers, then going to Samís for shopping. Also plenty of parking behind the pub near Bed Bath and Beyond.

Neat little place. Especially good if you like Goose Island. Good atmosphere, seemingly friendly staff. Good home selection.

I visted both Clybourn and Wrigleyville location. Each brewpub was clean and staffed with friendly bartenders. Wrigleyville was built to thrive on the crowds attending Cubs games around the corner. It had large HDTVís to show sports all the time. Clybourn was constructed more for the beer geek, much smaller bar than Wrigleyville. Both location had 2-3 "special" beers on draft. Costs of beers were in line with the slightly more expen$ive Chicago bar prices.
