Yeah, being in an airport, this place is expensive. Thatís expected. That aside, the ambiance is pretty good, given the fact that itís in an airport. Selection was pretty reasonable, four taps and four different bottles. Our service was the friendliest we encountered among the burned our vendor workers. I lucked out and was waiting in a terminal a matter of yards away. This made my layover much, much better.

Bar in concourse L, Terminal 3 of OíHare airport. Features about 6 taps and as many bottles of primarily Goose Island Beers. When I was there the only real gem they had was Bourbon County Stout in bottles, but finding a top 50 in an airport bar is pretty nice.

Only had Matilda, Honkers, and 312 at the time of my visit. But a Matilda for 9 bucks was not too crazy I guess. Sat next to a guy that was just hammered. The food looked tasty but I didnít not eat and my bartender was very nice. Keep in mind all comments are with respect to the fact that this is an airport bar.

Itís expensive. Food is pre-wrapped sandwiches. However, there are great Goose Island brews in bottles and on tap. I had Matilda. Itís the ale drinkerís refuge from airport macroland. Note: the phone number is from one of the pubs.

I went early in the morning, so it was pretty empty, and thus comfortable. Had a couple nice GI beers including Matilda, at about $9 each. A very reasonable airport bar. The beers were in good shape, the selection and prices ok, breakfast food looked good. Small, though, so like everyone says, I wouldnít want to try to get in here during rush hour. NOTE: Donít expect to find BCS. I was told they stopped carrying it.

Flight delay gave me way too much time to kill in the airport. Saw this listed in the database, and thought Iíd go get a beer. The Goose Island Brewery in OíHare is located in Terminal 3 near gate L10. They had 4 GI beers on draft (mostly std line up, had Green Line Pale Ale and Sofie) and 5 bottles (including BCS and Pere Jacques). I guess that would qualify as unique for an airport bar, but just moderately so. Beyond the beer lineup its your typical cramped airport bar and restaurant. Food looked pretty so-so.
52 = ★ (Borderline whether this should be on the site)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.

(Visited 10/2011): Goose Islandís airport pub is located in Terminal C, and is perpetually busy.
Even without the crowds, the place is pretty small and narrow, with a small takeaway area by the cash register, and the bar beyond that on the left, with table seating anywhere else it would fit.
The beer selection is okay for an airport, with 6 Goose Island taps that are mostly the common stuff (312, Honkers) and a couple less obvious choices (Matilda). There are also some Goose Island bottles plus some macros.
Service was pretty good considering the endless stream of people due to flights and the baseball game. When I finally managed to squeeze into a spot the bartender kept up with food and drink orders with no problem.
Food is not good, even for an airport. Goose Island obviously takes pride in their beer but anyone not familiar with the brand who orders food here is going to come away with a negative impression. Whatever panini/sandwich I ended up ordering was forgettable at best.
Overall I am always a fan of finding a brewpub presence at an airport, and will definitely stop in here on future travels if only for a brew while waiting. I may just grab a bite somewhere else first.

As a bar this sucks, as a place to spend some time on a lay over itís awesome! I missed the kitchen as I got in late but still got a Matilda on tap.

4-5 taps of common Goose Island beer, the most interesting selection being the Green Line Pale Ale which was is very poor condition. still the best place to drink in OíHare, but not a destination worth seeking out, even in terms of airport bars.

Coming from a place where we donít get Goose Island, I was thrilled to see this place while waiting for a flight. Although it gave me a chance to try Matilda, there wasnít much else to get excited about after all. Just 3 Goose Islands on draft and ho-hum pre-made sandwiches.
