Pretty typical airport style bar. Fried airport food too it looked like. Modest GI selection, at least they had Matilda on tap, which is a step up from the average American airport tap. Had a few interesting bottles (íimperial seriesí) on the menu but of course they were out of all of them. Iím not impressed, but it is still a clear step up from everything else available in T3 at Oíhare (almost autocorrected that to Oíhate. That would also have been fair)
Stopped by on a lay over. Was glad to have a place like this for what turned out to be a 7 hour (instead of 3) wait. Got to try a couple of Goose Island varieties that are not available in my area. Yes, it was crowded and loud. Service was slow. Prices were Ok for an airport. Food was pretty good. Better than most other options at OíHare in my opinion.
I have mixed feelings about this place. In general Iím glad that there is a brewpub in an airport, and a chance of having a Muddy or Sofie rather than a bud. But then again, this is so underwhelming for a bar bearing this name that itís shocking. Nothing here that isnít widely available. Prices are actually ok, for an airport, but expensive obviously. Came in and ended up only having a Honkerís ale because I hadnít rated it before.
I wonder if I was in right place (Terminal 1)? This was more like sandwich and panini place. They didnt even have any taps, just 2 bottles (IPA and Honkers) available. I walked away when realising situation. Should be removed from ratebeer IMO. Disgrace for Goose Island.
Visited the location in Concourse C of Terminal 1. Basically a little more than a cubby hole. Small bar and a few little tables. The draft list is mostly just the normal lineup of stuff like 312, but they did have Green Line which I had not previously tried, so I got a glass of that. It was okay, I suppose.
Service was pretty lax here, which I guess is not terribly surprising given that itís an airport and I rarely receive good service at any airport bar or restaurant. And of course the prices are kind of eyebrow raising.
Good enough for a quick place tick, but thatís about all I would really come here for.
I wasnít too impressed with this location. I tried to get to the pub in the city, but didnít make it. This had to do, but barely. The biggest issue with this place was the service. Our waitress was SLOW. A restaurant in the airport isnít the place to be a slow server. We literally had to chase her down to get our check to make our flight on time (we even had two full hours to be there). The waitress even thought the Sam Adams winter lager was Goose Islandís seasonal offering. We questioned her on it, but she insisted it was. Enough beating up the waitress. The beer selection was pretty tame; only four Goose Island beers on draft and about four more in bottles. The menu was typical pub fare, with nothing really special being offered. If I find myself at OíHare again, Iíll probably be fine with skipping this spot.
I went to the Goose Island outlet next to gate C10 at OíHare as my flight was leaving from right there so why not kill time with a beer at 930AM? 16oz pours for ten bucks(one size) in this small sports bar looking place with about a dozen seats at the bar 6 facing the windows with a view of the Tarmac and another 8 facing a wall but they have outlets to charge your devices. The selection here is pretty lame just 3-4 GI taps but they do take out and if you want to try Goose Island at the source but arenít leaving the airport it is a serviceable option.
Review is for the Terminal 1, Concourse C one. Over many many trips through this terminal, I can honestly say this is the best option in either B or C, which isnít saying much. Very small and almost always packed. You are lucky to get a seat at any time that is remotely busy (which is most of the time). If you can find a bar stool, it is a fine place to kill some time, but good luck.
