Clybourn Location... A great place to go for lunch, a casual dinner or just a laid back night of drinking some pretty decent beers. Food is pretty good, and for what you recieve itís reasonably priced. Their MBA program provides those interested a way to earn free growlers and other stuff just for trying different beers. The staff is also very friendly and efficient. Again, great place!

Clybourn location. Cool looking building from the outside. I thought about the story on the side of the 4 pack of Demolition. Siebel on premise is a huge plus in my book. Kind of a basic looking pub that reminded me of a Rock Bottom. I really shouldnít base my service rating off of the one time I was there, but it was a bit gruff and certainly below par on that on afternoon! Selection was alright, focusing mainly on lighter, summer style beers when I was there. Beers were all very clean and tasty, though. The food was a bit pricey and a little too rich for my taste. Overall, this is a decent spot to get some tasty beers.

Good burgers, very nice beer selections. I had three of their beers, and all were very good. The Stilton Burger is quite tasty. A nice atmosphere, friendly folks and a good time.

Clybourn location. Easy to find, plenty of parking (I asked the guys at Samís if it was OK to park in their lot and they said, "no problem"). Fast and knowledgable bartender behind an expansive bar. The stool height versus the bar height was a little claustrophobic for the long-legged amongst us, and all the crazy geese on the tap handles seemed to be staring at me, but those were the only drawbacks. Great selelection and friendly bar patrons that made me feel like I was part of a community rather than a visitor. Go there. Now.

First time there was Spring 2005, when we did the standard tour and sampling. After everyone left, the tour guide gave my wife and I all of the leftover beer from the ones we enjoyed the most. Since then, weíve returned probably monthly, enjoying several new beers each time and even eating there on occassion. I simply love this place. Fantastic beer, always changing taps, proper glassware... It seems to get better with each visit.

Went to the one on Clybourn. Dining area is somewhat small but clean and intimite with nice beer and neat decorations on the wall. Large food menu and the food is pretty good. Very Large beer selection, about 20 beers on tap at a time. Some beers change every week. Very large and hopping bar area. Lively, older crowd. Large brewing area visible through giant glass windows from bar. Outstanding experience, everyone must go once. Not sure if itís possible to take an actual tour of the brewery though.

Top notch brewpub. Every beer I had was good to excellent. Most beers are served in nice tulip glasses. The brewer talked to us for about half an hour and was a great guy. I loved everything about this place except that its so far away from me.

Clybourn. Easily the best brewpub Iíve been to in terms of variety and ambience. Good food too. I recommend the Stilton Burger. Itís a beast and amazing. Sampler has changed again, no 4 for $9. As for the sampler, they recently changed it, not it is 4 5oz samples for $6. A helluva a deal for their beer.(used to be 3 for $5)

This is my favored of the two GIs, not only because thereís parking (important to a southsider), but because the crowd isnít all jockied and yuppified. Decent food, should one feel the need to eat, and a nice selection of beers. Goose Island should be bottling more of what they offer on tap. Theyíd gain a much greater amount of respect in the world of beer lovers than they do by, for the most part, shipping out merely their mainstream wares.

I love this place! They let you have homebrew club meetings here and itís just generally an excellent atmosphere for beer geekery. They have a bagillion quality styles on tap and some are very unique and special.The sampler is awesome since you actually get decent sized servings in nice glasses--you get three 4 oz servings for the price of a pint. Beers all served at proper temp. Just a great place. My one major beef is they tend to run a tab on you without asking which sometimes stuns and confuses me. The Clyborn location is head and shoulders above the Clark St. one by the way.
