What a joke. This is a product of Goose Island being bought out. They only have 4 goose taps - 312, Honkers, Green Line, and Matilda. They have some other bottles, but the bartenders have no idea what they are and have to fumble around the ice bucket.
The servers know nothing about beer, and the draft lines were absolutely disgusting. My Matilda smelled like the trap on a Hobart dishwasher. I left my overpriced draft on the bar half full.
I learned a lesson today. Donít order draft beer at an airport.

This place was ridiculous to me. Their taps were only OK, and not enough of them, especially since most were available nearly everywhere within 500 miles. The most ridiculous thing was that they charged over $8 for a 12 oz bottle of their nut brown ale. Something that would retail for ~$1.69 at any bottle shop. Awful.

Oct 2012. The best place for a beer at the OíHare airport. Unfortunately itís very crowded and both times I had to wait in a queue for 20 minutes to get in. Well, first time I waited, second time I skipped the whole place.
Food isnít good, so skip it. Service isnít that good either. Beer selection includes 6 Goose Island beers and I had Matilda. They do have Bourbon County Stout, but not the rarities you usually see on this the availability page. Bad timing, I guess. And itís pricy.
Nevertheless a crowded airport pub with better-than-average beers on tap.

One of the better places for an airport, but if you are expecting the same thing as Goose Clybourne or Wrigley, youíve got another thing coming. Food is pretty average and the service is not good. Ok selection of GI standards.

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.

as an airport bar, this place was ok.. they had honkers, 312, and green line pale which is ok, but also had matilda! .. no interesting bottles for me, just honkers and mild winter .. . bartender was average, just run of the mill airport bartender .. overall- if in the terminal and you need a beer. this gives you that and nothing else.

Small bar with a few peripheral tables, plus window seating, 6 taps, a few bottles (including seasonals). Crowded, didnít try the food. Iím thankful to have access to quality beer in an airport, but this was not a comfortable place, and the service was pretty brutal.

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.

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.

(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.
