Visited 7/25/2010 with masterski.

Masterski took me on a bit of a walking bar crawl the first night I was in Chicago. Stopped here right after having some beer and fries at Sheffieldís. This GI location seems like more of a sports bar with a couple of house taps just to remind themselves that they are in fact running a brewpub. Itís understandable of course given the proximity to Wrigley Field.

Lots of places to sit and lots of employees to flag down for a beer but the impression that I got was that unless you are loud and drunk youíll get passed up. Pretty loud over all but thatís alright.

The beers available were the regulars (312, Honkers, IPA, Kolsch, etc) plus one or two rotating taps it seems. The IPA is quite nice and the 312 would be good if I liked American Wheat (Garbage) Ales.

Didnt eat because we were only stopping in for a quick beer before going to the next place. Would stop in if I was in town for a Cubs game.

a number of your typical Goose Island taps with two guest taps. pre-game itís PACKED with baseball fans, as expected. no biggies. still worth a stop as most other bars in Wrigleyville are a waste of time.

Fairly neat building right across the street from Wriggley Field. The building is typical of the location but attended to well. Had around 12 taps plus 4 bottle selections. Food is typical brew pub fare, nothing special.

May 2010. Damn, it was cold in Chicago on the May Saturday afternoon I dropped by .. what a warm respite! Right next door to Wrigley, Iím sure this place is mobbed on game day. Goose Island always has quality selections, and the food here was delish. And the servers were hot, too. Whatís not to like. Brewery #512.

Certainly the inferior of thw two Goose island with a couple of beers less and all the others being offered at Clybourne. Also, it was particularly packed with Cubs fans and thatís not a crowd I especially enjoy. We could not get a seat on a wednesday. Iíd come back only if Clybourne closes down - and then I would definitely come back from the awesome beer.

Very friendly place, and a nice place to walk about in daytime. The girls do not know their beers, and the beers are decent but not cutting edge. A few decent bottles. Prices very reasonable. Long bar, lots of tables.

Visited before a Cubs game. Didnít eat, but did sample a number of beers. Kind of crowded, and the selection isnít as extensive as the Clybourn location, but still - Goose Island beer in the shadow of Wrigley Field - not a bad thing.

I went her before a Cubs game. Iíve been to the LP local, which I prefer. The wrig locale is much bigger which is nice, but a little too much going on. The staff did not seem as knowledagle as the primary, a little disappointed in there suggestions. All upset they ran out of two beers and did not quickly replace them. At the primary when that happened I remember getting a new menu right away. The selection of beer was ok, nothing special. They had most of the GI staples only a 2 or 3 special beers and none of which were great. I understand this is different crowd then at the primary but its for sure a lessor experience. If you want GI go to the primary, if youíre drinking before the Cubs game, its ok.

Iíve never been to the Clybourn location, but this one is on a very busy block of Clark in Wrigleyville and still manages a nice atmosphere. About a dozen taps but not all were active when I went there, which meant they were short on the seasonals and harder-to-find GI brews. That was disappointing but hopefully next time this will be rectified. They also have a few other bottles of stuff that might not be on tap at the time. The food is relatively usual brewpub fare in terms of the menu, but is better quality than that in most other pubs. I was pleased with the buffalo chicken sandwich and the burgers looked good, too. Not the greatest brewpub out there, but if youíre in Chicago for a few days and hitting all the big spots, one of the Goose Island brewpubs deserves a visit.

So we came in here on a day where the Cubs were out of town, so I canít really say what it looks like on a game day (but I can damn well guess). I bet its a zoo! Anyway, this is a nice spot for some brewpub beers that are somehow also made by AB... What an odd combo. I wonít hold it against them though. It feels like a nice, solid brewpub. The GI name (and all the "guest" beers from the big GI) just happens to be there too.
