visited on a Saturday afternoon. food was delicious and the beer was even better! staff was friendly too. I can’t 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 I’d 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 it’s 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 shouldn’t 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 Sam’s 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, we’ve 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 it’s possible to take an actual tour of the brewery though.
