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.

barleyPops  (65) Quad-Cities, Illinois | July 10, 2005| Updated July 9, 2011
visited on a Saturday afternoon. food was delicious and the beer was even better! staff was friendly too. I canít wait to go back! been here a couple of times since my initial visit/rating. last visit ( 6/30/2011 ) was on a Thursday evening for dinner and drinks. our cheese plate appetizer was very small for the $$$ and was haphazardly thrown onto the serving piece. dinner was OK, but not as good as my previous two trips. more beers available this time than in the past, but was disappointed that the sours were only available in bottles at $25 per.

Utterly pleasant experience. 12 brews to try, and a ton of interesting looking food in huge portions that I only wish Iíd had the appetite to order. A definite return trip is in order.

Visited the Clybourn brewpub for the first time in April 1999 and returned in May 2005. GI makes some astoundingly good beers and they had a big selection on tap. The food is good if standard.

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.
